I’ve received an invite to visit one of my lecturers in order to "discuss [my] final placement". Aside from the date, that is how much I know.

It’s progress, but I’m still no nearer to being able to commit. I don’t know where or when this placement might be. I am struggling to find accommodation available for three months, and not knowing dates or location does not help. Amidst this uncertainty, I have not applied for a student loan. It seems pointless to apply when I am doubtful I can make this work. I’m quite angry and upset, quite particularly at myself as had I passed first time there would have been no problem.
