    Yeh this is what i meant. All the people that got their results first got their accommodation first, so the most popular ones seemed to be almost filled up by the time A levellers got their results. I know you aren't international Rennie but you do IB, and hence you got your results and accommodation offer before the A levellers.
    Ah, I see.

    I do feel awfully bad... but I'm glad there was some advantage to the IB because I was in college far more often than my A level friends, had more exams and had to do a lot of community work... so having something positive is good!

    I think it is unfair- they should definitely allocate only a certain amount of the most popular accommodation in July, or just do everyone's in August together.

    They should also give people an option to put a place that they wouldn't be happy in. Equally, I know some unis allow you to order all of the different halls in order of preference. If they did that, you could at least get your third or fourth choice. It seems crazy how they are allocating some accommodation quite randomly and I know lots of people want to switch. They could prevent that problem by changing the application process a little.

    I was planning to go up on the Friday too, but my contract start date says the 19th, can I still arrive on the Friday? I'm in Ricky road

    Yep. My mum had real difficulty booking a place to stay - not only is everywhere booked up but it's really expensive when you find somewhere too, hence why I wanted to warn people before it gets even worse!
