    I'm doing Zoology with a preliminary year because I don't have the right A-levels (I only have one science at A2.)

    Anyone else doing anything similar? Would be nice to chat with potential coursemates.

    Hi, I'm doing a preliminary year too! Doing chemistry but I think we have the same first year.
    Have you had much information about the prelim year, everything has gone through the chemistry department so far and know one can tell me much about it?
    Where are you living?

    Hi! I've had no information so far except the enrolment info here http://www.cf.ac.uk/biosi/currentstu...ary%202014.pdf - so it'll be a complete surprise, I guess!

    I'm living in Talybont South, House 13. How about you?

    Yep saw the enrolment Info, hoping to get a welcome pack or something, chemistry sending one out this week. Or we can all have a surprise together!

    Have you found any flat mates yet, any idea what you are doing for freshers week?

    Haven't found any flatmates yet but I found someone in the other flat on the same floor as me. Also I've bought the week one electric wristband (well, bought the ticket... no idea where we actually get the wristbands o.O) but that's it so far, I want to wait and go to the same events as my flatmates but they might be sold out by then... oh well.

    How about you?

    Yep found 3 others, so we have a bit of a plan - to wait to we get there and pay as we go in to places. you are welcome to join if we are looking for somewhere that is not sold out! I did buy week one electric before I found people, think we will be told closer to the time where to collect it

    Have you looked for people on facebook? Guess you have If you bought the electric wristband, there seems to be so many groups!.

    Sounds like a good plan, and thanks - I might do that!

    I've had a look on Facebook in the Talybont South groups and the page for House 13, I'll keep looking. Have you found anyone on Facebook?

    Yes
    Found them on facebook, we all had our offers early, did not have to wait till A lvel results, so less people meant easier to find others and not miss posts!

    Ahhh cool. I didn't have 2 sciences at A2, just biology (took physics at AS but dropped it), and if I'd known I wanted to do zoology I'd have taken psychology, cos it counts as a science.

    I'm arriving on the 17th, how about you? Yeah you're right, not long now!

    I am also doing zoology with preliminary year!! Can't wait!! So nice to meet people on the same path. I did a diploma in something completely unrelated, went travelling, came back and wanted to do zoology hence the preliminary year😃😀 has anyone got timetables yet?

    Hi! Nice to meet you

    I'd have thought we get timetables when we arrive, after we've chosen our optional modules - but I'm not sure.

    I'm arriving on the 17th too, just booked my ferry! just trying to get some things organised, there is stuff everywhere. Not sure it is all going to fit in the car.

    Enrolled online yesterday, if you have not done so yet, you can see which modules you have to do and look at the options, just can't select them yet.

    Hello.
    Not had timetables yet, but you can look at the modules you can choose from when you do the online enrollment.

    Oh yeah! I've just had a look, so much chemistry!

    Well, there's a fair few core modules I'm not particularly looking forward to - oh well, will just have to see. Maybe after 2 years of not doing any chemistry or maths, I'll have magically stopped hating them
