    umm...it was about 2 or 3 weeks ago i think :confused:
    if you havent been asked, then they probably have full verification of your grades unlike me, who must have lied about them so they have to check - i must sound like a dodgy person or something!

    and we'll hopefully be getting offers for accomodation soon - woooo! what have you put down as your first choice?

    What was the reasoning on the letter for having to send in your results?

    My sister has just finished her second year there, studying architecture. As far as I know, she loves it, although I've got the impression that the workload for architecture is particularly heavy. She lives in a house in Southsea with a few friends who are also studying there now, but was in Rhys Halls during her first year, which always seemed nice whenever I went to visit.

    Hey Sparkler,
    Call up the Admissions dept and see if you can get your certificates back.
    I called up the accommodation office and it seems like we should hear something by 16th July apparantly.
    I put James Watson down as my first choice and Trafalgar as my second choice.
    What about you?
    Really can't wiat now....have already made my trip to Ikea!

    Oh has there? It doesn't strike me as the type of place for violence, but I suppose every area has at least some.
    Good God... Where do you come from (not southern Hants, I'd say!)? You wouldn't get me going out in Southsea at night without a car (i.e. me in it) or some sort of weapon! :rolleyes:

    Stalker..? Give me some credit! What sorta self-respecting stalker would stalk someone who chose to go to Pompey?

    If I was going to do that, I'd at least stalk a nice Southampton student!

    First you say you wouldn't go to Southsea without a weapon then you say you go to Portsmouth grammer school and then your name suggests you're from Southampton. You do realise if I ever see I'm going to give you a slap!
