    Yup! Technically the physics route. What science did you end up going into?
    Edit: I've just read your message before sorry. How was the SEFP last year? Was it hard?

    Yh, I went through the Engineering route, but the route I took was with physics students alongside engineering students as I had to do the same maths and physics modules.

    It's very good, as long as you go to every lecture and do all the work it's fine, however it is very demanding. I just warn you there are some lecturers who are bit....

    Yeah I expect so with the maths and the physics. Oh god are there lots of assessments? Did you live on campus or did you commute?

    If you are planning to go to quite a few events you might want to get the freshers pass

    Ah that's so cool! I got rejected accommodation because I don't live far away enough I guess you live out london or are an international student?
    and Yeah I still need to buy one, it's just they are kind of expensive so i've been putting it off

    I was initially not offered accommodation because I was an insurance student and because of that didn't get any sort of priority. I was 238th on the waiting list. Only got offered accommodation about two weeks ago. Yeah I live just outside london so I could commute but it would be a very long commute and kinda tricky because I cant rely on the night tube. :/Ah yeah freshers is expensive. But I was comparing my freshers pass to some of my friends going to different unis. We're actually quite cheap! Warwick is about £15 more than ours and they have to pay an extra £5 for their t-shirt whilst ours is inc in the pack.

    Ah lucky! and that's true, the pass does allow us into most of the events. What are you most looking forward to?

    For freshers I'm excited for the war of the halls the the Freshers ball. But generally I'm just excited to get into my accom, meet the people I'm going to be living with and to get stuck into my course.

    What about you?
