    lol in the end as long as I can survive there its good enough for me, you like your privacy?
    Yes and no. I have a thing about people touching my stuff. Also, I don't know how clean the people I'm going to live with will be, and I'm not willing to take that chance. :p: :dontknow:

    I got my student finance letter a few days ago that told me when I was getting payments for my grant throughout the year and when the fees would be payed.....that made me feel like I had got my place
    Also on my student finance account on the website it had the dates of the payments and beside the maintanence grant payments they all said APPROVED but beside the tuition fee payments to the uni it said BLOCKED, i thought it said that cos they don't know if Im in yet, but then a few days ago it changed to APPROVED and my intial thoughts were I HAVE GOT IN!! but then it occured to me that it was probably only blocked because they needed to verify with uni the amount the fees are and hence how much student financehad to pay, now that thats been verified it has changed to APPROVED. Whats everyone's thoughts on this?

    They can't reject anyone that has firmed them and made the grades, the UCAS offer is a legally binding contract once you accept it.
    I'm not sure about insurance offers, but I'd assume it's the same. If you don't make the grades you haven't fulfilled you end of the contract so they can terminate.
    Trust me my uni is getting away with it, my course only has 25 places, it is capped, and the uni has given conditional offers to over a hundred students, they cant take all hundred in.

    The Unis have a date by which your grades have to be in by, if you get a priority remark you should make it within the deadline, if you don;t get the priority remark your results definitely won't be back in time.
    If you are getting a remark done make sure you let your Uni know as they might hold your place until then.
    ah ok thanks! i just want to have all my bases covered, so i'm prepared for whatever may happen :cool:

    This song automatically came to mind when I read your post. :p:
    (8)I got a feeling, that tonights gonna be a dood night(8)
    :danceboy:

    Anyway, I see what you're getting at there, but I wouldn't say I have a good feeling, I'm just a lot calmer than I was a week ago, which is kinda weird considering its getting closer and closer to the day itself. I sorta want this feeling to stay for a while though, but I bet it'll get worse next week when there's like 5 days to go.
    that is well wicked :yes:

    I don;t see why they can.
    Every University has a cap set by the Gov. if they go over this they get fined. The Universities still have to take you if you get the grades, unless they specify in the offer that you place is conditional on no more than 24 people getting the grades I can't see how they would get away with it.
