    Hello

    I was wondering if anyone else on here had received a place on the 2013/14 access course at COWA? If so what are people doing in terms of accommodation?

    Hi Jessi,

    I'm currently on the A2M course at CoWA and (along with four others who're also on here) am staying in a house directly opposite the college. The commute in the morning is <30 seconds and if you apply for the Learner Support Fund, you'll probably get your accommodation paid for you. Let me know if you want the landlord's number.

    Hi Ollie

    Thank-you for the reply, yes the landlords number would be very useful, thanks. Was there a way of contacting other people on the course also looking for accommodation or was it just coincidence that you ended up living with people on the A2M course?

    I actually made contact in the first instance with people through this forum, you might be able to get details through the college of people who're looking for housemates, but I'm not sure if they'll hold it. I'll send you the details of the landlord shortly.

    I didn't take the essay exam upon entering CoWA Addy, but I imagine they'll change the question between years.

    Hi Addy, I really wouldn't worry in terms of the assessments or essay question, I can't remember exactly what it was but it wasn't anything awful . Good luck with the interview :)

    Hi all, nice to have a group where all potential/current COWA A2M students can talk about the course. Just wondering if anyone can enlighten me regarding the interview/assessment process? Cheers...

    When was/is the deadline for application for COWA for this coming year? Am I too late to apply? Noticed on the online application their last interview dates were March 6th so I am guessing so. Anyone fill me in? Cheers

    Hi there. I found out today that I've my interview on 15th May for 13/14 entry at CoWA. Does anyone have any idea what's covered in the one-to-one interview or the science test?

    Thanks

    Yeah I've got an interview offer on the 15th as well and had wondered what it all entailed too. I've seen posts on here saying it's nothing to worry about but a little clarification would be good at easing any worries.The interview day's slap bang in the middle of my finals exams though so going to see if there's another open/interview day I could go along to, fingers crossed. Might see you there if not!

    Hey! Nice to hear from you. My concern is my science. It's been years since I did my exams so am a bit rusty. Will need to brush up. Would be good to know what it entails!

    Hi there, I might be a bit late. I'd the interview and assessment last week. It's really nothing to worry about. A short essay question, interview, maths and a verbal reasoning paper.

    Thanks Reidaroo! Did they let you know if you're in or no? What was turn out like? I need to email the admissions guy back to see if they are going to hold another interview day or whether all the places are gone; was supposed to be there at the assessment day on the 15th but I'm right in the middle of my exams at the mo (last one tomorrow thank god).

    Hey, TPH. Yeah I got offered a place on the day. I think there were about 8 of us...no idea how many were due to attend. How did the exam go?

    Yeah okay I think, it's my last one anyway just got to wait and see. Hmm sounds worth getting in touch then to make sure if all places are gone or no, might do that today. You all sorted with accommodation and everything now?

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick note to let you know that there's two rooms available in No. 13 Tennyson Avenue, which is right across from the college (commute time of ~10 seconds). I stayed there last year and had no problems at all. Worth a look if you're stuck for accommodation.

    Does anyone know when the course starts in September? I'm trying to plan exactly when we need to relocate to Kings Lynn.
