    Yeah it's unconditional as I've already done my a levels. I think they automatically put everyone who's doing something like nursing or midwifery in non catered accommodation and I think each halls is either completely catered or completely non catered
    That's really good :-) And that's really helpful to know xx

    What grades did you get offered, once you had firmed/insurance? and what grades did you end up getting to get into the foundation?
    Thinking of firming a foundation but don't know what grades they are likely to set considering the 'entry requirements' were very low.

    I firmed Keele after receiving an unconditional offer (and so were most of my friends offers) but I'm pretty sure you only need 160 ucas points to get onto it. I actually ended up with less ucas points than that so it's a good job it was unconditional!

    Yeah only took 2 because my sixth form screwed me over The foundation year has been a bit tedious at times but I'd rather do the foundation year than spend another year at sixth form

    Hi guys!

    Are any of you definitely starting at Keele University in September? What are you going to study? I'm going to be studying BSc Geoscience

    I made this thread so that future Keele students can share their interests and ambitions, and hopefully we can get to know each other a bit before starting
    Yep! Decided to take my unconditional to study MMath just reduce exam stress... I was a mess last summer.

    Yeah that's the good thing about unconditionals, they take the pressure off! Have you applied for your accommodation yet?

    Yeah I did it the other day:
    1st Choice: Premier Flat Band C
    2nd Choice: Shared Flat Band C
    3rd Choice: 40 Week Without Basin Band A

    Can't wait. Out of all my friends I'm the odd one who can't wait to live independently...

    Awesome! I have premier flats as my first choice too. I'm looking forward to living independently as well, I think it will be a good experience

    Hi, I'll probably end up firming Keele next week once I've attended the open day, I have an unconditional offer for Biology. I'm a mature student looking to live off campus so if anyone's interested in potentially buddying up then give me a shout!

    Awesome! I have an unconditional offer for Geoscience

    My understanding is that when we get our accommodation offers, we'll also be given a moving in date when we can move in with all our stuff
