    My offer is quite strange (well, points = confusing :confused: )
    Its
    320 points inc B in Biology and a B in maths or chemistry. (not inc Key skills)

    I'm doing maths, bio and chem A-levels and Critical thinking AS Level
    I already have an A in ICT AS level, so thats already 60 points, so out of my A Levels, I need 2 B's (which willl make up my total points to 260, so then I need a total of 60 points from the remaining A-level and critical thinking)

    How about you?
    What kind of accommodation did you put down for?

    not that you're rubbing it in or anything.......

    God, my loan isnt even going to cover my rent
    Why is it more expensive this year - have they been done up or something?

    sorry - didn't mean to sound rather snooty, how come the Vale is preferential to you?

    Currently in Mason. Good place to be for the social life but you've got to be prepared to pay a lot for shyte food and not-so-good accommodation. The Vale is the place to be in the summer though - you get everyone out there in this good weather playing sport, chilling out, having barbeques etc. Get the gazebos up and the music on and it's like a mini festival! Also has the lake and the ducks who themselves are almost legendary characters! You could almost forget you were only a mile or two from the centre of Brum!


    Oh, here's a little-known fact for those people not at Birmingham that I'll share since it just popped into my head: Chris Tarrant was expelled from the uni for taking a swan, clipping its wings and throwing from the top floor of Chamberlain Tower!

    haahahah, sounds fantastic - can't wait ! what subject are you doing there??

    the only problem is, that on the accom. application form, you can't specify which accomodation you'd prefer, only whether single, sharing en-suite or not and catering arrangements,

    lol what an evil thing to do - poor swans, so is the food really bad there then?

    Yes, the Vale will be the place to be next year with The Hub thing opening at the newly renovated Shakleton Hall.

    If anyone is living in the Tennis Courts, make sure you post which flat you are in, just in case you are in my old flat!
