    I dont know whats the business like at a-level, but i am really happy with the course at uni. there is a pain in the ass module, but otherwise, its been really interesting so far and its gonna get even better in my opinion.
    Was your timetable good?! I mean time of lectures etc etc. Because i haven't actually been to any of the open days,I've not spoken to any staff..how big are the classes?! Is it even boys girls?! Lol

    I didn't even know you could apply for accommodation before you firmed it could you only choose 2 en suite options for your 4 choices?
    Assuming the system is identical to last year, which I'm sure it will have been - yes, you can always only choose two ensuite options. I applied in November last year, and was only allowed to choose two, so this is the same no matter when you apply.

    my timetable was alright, around 9 classes per week(seminars+ lectures) but seminar at 9 am on friday was really...well.. you know..

    1.term
    - global business - really interesting module, the lecturer is amazing, he uses his own experience during the lectures, and seminars with him couldnt be any shorter (the stuff he discuss is so interesting, time flies really quickly)

    - microeconomics - interesting lectures, seminars a bit boring (cause the lecturer explains it really well and seminar leader just repeats what has already been said)

    -computing for business - oh, how much i hated that one.. complete waste of time.. you will learn few nice excel formulas but otherwise....aw....

    2. term
    - marketing - interesting lectures, well interpreted, and our seminar leader was really cool, so we had fun and learned smthing new

    - management - LOADS of theory, reading reading reading... its not hard, but the book is not so well written, so i managed to fall asleep 4times when reading the introduction

    - finance accounting, reporting, analysis - lecturer was weird.. i dont know.. it wasnt so bad.. but the lecturer really knew how to make his students fall asleep.

    and ive had as a wild module german classes, insted of two other modules.. so dont know abou them

    basically, all business courses have the similar/same modules the first year. so theres a mixture of ppl studying finance, business admin, int. business etc... - > more girls than boys

    and also, since its international business, you meet loads of int. students so you can learn a bit of their culture too im really happy with my choice

    If you go to the NUS site and register for one there, they send it to the Registry where you can pick it up. They do it to prove you're actually a student there.

    When I go on to register it won't let me choose the uni as an option, so I'm not too sure what to do :/

    If they'd given you an initial offer, presumably you missed and they're now considering your case further? Can only be good.
    Ok .... but I've seen on their clearings webpage, there were no more vacancies in Astrophysics :/ (Sounds bad ? )

    Got accepted yesterday Had kent as my firm. Looking forward to it. When you all applied for accommodation and made your 4 choices, could only 2 of your options only be en suite? And when did you all roughly apply for accommodation ? Thanks

    Yeah only 2 en-suite were allowed. I applied in December, as soon as it opened.

    Not usually though I imagine they're working overtime to get things done. Might not answer the phones though.

    If you're worried, leave a message and a contact number
