    Does anyone know if there's a University College or just a regular Durham offer holders thread? I've got a few accommodation questions that I'm not sure where to ask.

    might be best to ask it in here, its an 'ask a current student' thread but the questions seem to get answered!

    Oh! Wow I wasn't expecting to have to do that, and it's £30 that's quite steep.
    I don't know if the 2-day open day is for all courses but it is for mechanical eng.

    I'm going on the 21st for Engineering at Collingwood
    Ahh is that monday to tuesday?

    On the map Collingwood sent me, it shows the train station is right next to the university. Is this the main train station in Durham? As in, if I buy a train ticket to 'Durham', will the train stop at the station outside the uni?

    AHH, rejection! One less 3 languages person for you! Not that bothered, I purely applied for the allure of Castle! I've got Newcastle, Bath, Liverpool and Warwick though, just got to pick between Bath and Newcastle!

    Where else are your offers from?

    Van mildert you?

    I hope I like it on the open day, I haven't had a chance to visit so far. But van mildert's meant to be friendly, plus there's the added benefit of no shared rooms

    ah cool
    when i went up before it had the friendliest vibe out of all of them.
    they have a mother and father system (dunno if that's the name of anything)
    where you are integrated throughout the different years in the college.

    I'm gonna be at Grey (if I get the grades)

    I'm glad I haven't been mislead there then
    Grey looks good, it was one of the others I was considering when I applied. What grades do you need for straight languages? Do you have an insurance?

    i need AAB
    i want edinburgh to be insurance cos that would be BBB, but cos i still haven't heard, my current insurance is Birmingham which is ABB.

    Insurance will be nottingham, AAB unfortunately the English makes the offers higher, I need AAA for Durham. As long as I don't have any disasters though I feel fairly confident. Most of the time...

    Unlucky man. I will no doubt be joining you in a few days. I wish they'd just hurry up.
    Can I ask what your grades were/what you're predicted? If I convince myself I never had a chance in the first place, it won't be that much of a let down
