    Yeah me too, at least I know one other person's going to be in the same boat as me lol.

    I wouldn't worry about your GCSE's, if they've emailed you saying they don't need them, then they don't need them. Especially as you've now called to clarify. But if you're worried, you may as well take the certs with you when the year starts, just in case... I'm guessing a couple of pieces of paper wont make too much difference to a years worth of living supplies lol.

    Anyone going to the post app open day on the 18th?
    Ahh that's good ur first person that's going to butler so far
    Yeah suppose I could do, just find it weird :/

    I think he/she means they tried logging in but got a password wrong or something, so the account freezes for security reasons... I don't know though, I'm just assuming there isn't such a thing as being locked out of the account because you logged in too much.
    I've heard of people who got banned from UCAS Track for logging in too much so that was what I assumed the case is here.

    I had typed my pass wrong, but only once. Next day it returned to normal and I was able to log in.

    ...I admit I did check my email (had notifications switch on) rather obsessively before I got my place. Plus a rather awkward phone call to admissions as I'd missed a call lol.

    After contacting them, I was told that they would get back to me in few weeks because they still have applications from prior jan. I hope that doesn't imply a rejection, Durham is really where I want to go...:unsure:

    Not sure about visiting the foundation department, but there is a drop in session sept/oct where you can meet other students and tutors. Plus if I remember right there is a mature students open day. It is worth having a look at the department you plan to go on to after the foundation year.

    Are you able to switch subject once you've accomplished your foundation year? Lets say one studies a foundation year in a certain subject and decides to move on to a similar but different subject.

    Sorry, but merged your post into the existing thread for 2013 Foundation intake people, so we don't divide discussion and get confused!

    I know that during the foundation year you can change subjects, as long as its not too different (English to Geology) due to modules the department want students to pass to access onto the degree programme. If you think that you want to change after the foundation course, then you will have to take it up with the department, who will decide.

    All depends of whether you are studying humanities, Science etc.

    For me (I took humanities modules) in the 1st semester

    Monday 4-6
    Tuesday 10-5
    Wednesday 9-2
    Thursday 12-2
    Friday 10-5

    2nd semester was more flexible.

    Hope that helps
