    Work harder. Do more past papers. Don't take law at uni. Don't choose an insurance uni which doesn't give you halls if it's insurance choice.

    Southampton. They do offer halls for insurance people but I never received the pack I was supposed to so I didn't apply for them in advance. Apparently a lot of other people also didn't receive the accommodation pack when they had put Southampton as insurance also. They ended up with loads of rooms empty even though I rang about 5 times asking and they said they were full. My boyfriend got into Bournemouth through Clearing and got halls for heaven's sake.

    I'm on my gap right now, before uni, but my advice to myself would be to work harder and don't do as much voluntary work. Even if at the end of the day I got in because of the KIND of work I did, it would have been nice to have more choice considering the grades I wound up with.
