    Hi,
    (Original post by EricAteYou)
    Is anyone here going to the Hatfield ( or any other college with a formal on the open day ) open day, and if so what are you wearing?

    My greatest fear in life is either being very over or under dressed.

    Hi was wondering the same. Asked my friend and they said prospective Hatfielders should have received a welcome letter from the college with a link to their Facebook group and you can ask on there if you want to make sure what their definition of 'smart' is. I think they want smart 'business' style wear e.g. Suit for a guy and skirt/blouse or dress for a girl. I don't think they want anything too formal so no DJs or ball gowns.

    Recently accepted onto the MA English course. I saw Brackenbury had significantly cheaper standard en-suite rooms than everywhere else so it's a no-brainer for me.

    Two questions:
    On the application form, how important is the "tell us about yourself" section? I'm there to live....what do they want from me? Do they want some spiel about how I'll join all the societies and party with the freshers every night? I'll be 23 years old, get off my lawn

    Where the hell is Brackenbury? Can't seem to find it on google maps.

    Umm the "tell us about yourself" bit is probably done so to aid them in ensuring that you and your potential flat mates are compatible when they do the accommodation allocations.

    So what if you're 23? Really don't think anyone is trying to get 'on' your lawn, don't worry

    How does college reallocation work?

    Reallocation means that you have no longer been guaranteed a place at your previously allocated college for whatever reason, but hold a place in the Uni, as a result they will put you into whichever college that still has places.

    This is done randomly, but obviously by then the more 'popular' colleges are usually full so it is highly unlikely that you will be allocated to those. In my opinion, people are usually reallocated to one of the hill colleges cause a couple of the bailey colleges are often oversubscribed. 😊

    Why does this occur? I really don't want to lose my place at my college.

    College reallocation occurs because each college has a quota for students from each subject to fulfil; they can't exceed that quota. But if you've already been offered a place then you won't be reallocated unless you don't reach the exact grades Durham want.

    Oh right it's just that I've heard a few people get reallocated after results? It's rare and also my college isn't super small so I think it's unlikely for me (plus I've done my A Levels so my offer is unconditional). I just thought you were talking about that not reallocation from your first choice when colleges are allocated.

    Oh yeah it's basically definite you won't get reallocated if you've already got the grades, I think it's just for people who got equivalent grades and not the ones Durham asked for. What college did you get allocated to??

    St Cuth's. I know it's not a crazily popular one but I just like it and it is a bailey college so I don't want to lose it.

    Received an unconditional to study Psychology at St Chad's (I already completed my A-levels last year). Anyone else applied to study Psychology, to Chad's, or even Psychology at Chad's?

    There's a thread for Chad's applicants (link below), and I may set one up for psychology applicants if there's not already one up.
