    The Bristol offer was mine, so thanks!

    Track emails you if it updates yep, but sometimes some people have found that they checked Track, found it had changed, and then got the email about it the next day.

    I seriously need help with student finance, I can't do it at all, the whole thing is so confusing!

    Also Orkney is beautiful, I am so envious of you getting to go lambing there. I don't like as much as I like Shetland, which is even more stunning, colder and has even more sheep, but Orkney is nice too

    Oh joy :rolleyes:
    Do your Track not email you if it updates? I've only been on Track about 5 times, and mostly to check that that "Conditional" was still there :p: Wish Notts would get a move on though. If RVC updates before they do I'll be withdrawing so I can firm Cam, and I wouldn't want to deny them the chance to reject me properly :p:
    Well it does send me an email but it comes through a couple of hours or even days after track has updated. Are you putting rvc as your insurance if you get an offer or just firming camb?

    ok im sure im not the only one but basically...
    i've been looking at the student fiinance stuff and im only eligible for the smallest amount of maintenance loan which is like £3564 i think
    but accomodation at both ed and liv isnt far off that amount! i dont get any grants of anything and im not sure my parents can help me out but it means i wont have any money for living costs like food!
    how am i ment to make it work?

    Yeah, accommodation here is about £3500 for self-catered so it's not far off. I know a few people with little part time jobs but the situation isn't ideal. See, I got bursaries from the SAAS because my mum is unemployed, v low income etc so I'm not sure if I can be of much help.

    I don't think I get a very big maintenance allowance either, and accomm. at Bristol is EXPENSIVE to say the least :thumbsdown:

    So yeah, no idea what I am going to do either. Hopefully school will help me out and give me some advice!

    I'd insurance it, if by some miracle I get an offer it'd be AAA, so that'd give me some grade-leeway.

    :lol: at the toast recipe

    For student finance you use the details of where you think its most likely that you'll go, then you can change it if you get a better offer or change your mind

    I'm not eligible for anything other than the maintenance loan, but Cam accommodation isn't too bad. I haven't fully worked it out but there's a slight chance I might be able to afford to eat Especially given the ban on getting a job in term time, everyone else clearly manages it so I assume it isn't too bad.

    Yeah I don't want to get a job either. I will do if there is absolutely no other option, but I would much rather focus on studying, and then spending free time doing something I actually enjoy!

    as far as i know you cant actually apply for accomodation until you've firmed a choice on ucas but you can always look at it now and decide where you want to live, thats what ive been doing so I can apply for it as soon as i hear back from liverpool!

    Pretty sure it depends totally on the uni; I've applied for mine at Cambridge but haven't firmed them on UCAS. They'll let you know when you can
