    I haven't heard anything, I've been debating ringing them for a while now :/ A teacher at my college said that they might just allocate rooms after we get our results?

    hmmm...I don't know. If other colleges are sorting it out now, you'd think they'd be doing the same? I'm going to wait another week or two, then maybe ring.

    Plenty of colleges don't allocate accommodation until after results day - no point in allocating you a room if you're not coming. If you mean sending out a preferences form, some colleges don't do this because all their first year accommodation is the same so there is no need to ask for preferences. Not having heard anything doesn't mean they have forgotten you or that your application has been secretly rejected.

    Is it possible to go and work in other colleges' libraries or do people stick to their own one?

    Also, can first years take out books from the UL?

    So Wolfson College sent out the accommodation forms yesterday by mail. I reacted quite quickly, I think, so let's see what room I get. I went for cheap. ^^

    Access to most college libraries is controlled by card/code, so you wouldn't ordinarily be able to get in unless you had a friend to let you in. If for whatever reason you needed access to another college's library (say they had a book your college didn't or something, though most colleges are pretty good at buying in requests) then it could be arranged, but it's not automatic.

    And no, only third years and above have borrowing rights for the UL.

    St John's do have some damn tough offers : A*A*A standard offer and they gave me A*A*AA ...probably to do with the fact that I couldn't draw a straight line for a good 5 mins due to shaking hands *fp*

    Nope, they've recently changed borrowing rules. First years can borrow up to 5 books for 2 weeks!

    Wow, revolutionary! In my defence, I only actually went there twice in my 6 years at Cambridge.

    Whilst I hate to hear others in pain too, its somewhat reassuring too! This whole process is tortuous! I found the interview day so so difficult! Heh ho....what will be will be!

    We had to write what uni we hoped to go to in our leavers book - I will possibly be always known as the one who DIDN'T get to Cambridge!

    Fuuuuark! That's the least social and the worst rooms though :eek: The architecture looks nice though... as long as you don't get put on the bus-stop side! :eek: What grade?

    I applied for south court grade 3-4 Standard.

    It's five minutes to the bar and the least noisy in terms of people. It'll be fine I went for 3-4.

    Well this thread was rather dominated by maths...
