    Hi,

    Does anyone know whether the preferences in the application to the Headstart course are of equal standing?

    I'm not sure how to explain what I'm asking except like if I put a particular course in the first preference box am I more likely to get in than if I put it in the third?

    I know it sounds weird but I did want to get clarification because it's not entirely clear. The preferences aren't numbered, it just says "write another preference".

    Thanks!

    They'll try to match you to your first preference but if that isn't something they can do then they'll see if there's space on your other preferences.

    Only list courses that you'd be happy to go to (but if there's lots that you wouldn't mind going to then list them all).

    Thanks very much for the clarification
