Enter preferences in Allocate+


Allocate+ must be in preference entry mode. Check Allocate+ access dates.

Choose your preferred times for activities with repeat sessions. Activities include lectures, tutorials and lab work. During preference entry mode, it doesn't matter who enters preferences first. This system will sort all preferences to minimise clashes.

Number your activity times in the boxes. Time slots with flags must be included in your preferences.

When finished click Submit Preferences.
Use 1 for your first preference, 2 for your second, etc.

Fill all time slots if there are less than six. If there are more, you only need to fill in six.

The % indicates the popularity of the activity. More than 100% means that more students have chosen this as their first preference than there are places available.

Before the sort, check Allocate+ each week. We don't notify you of activities that may change or be cancelled during preference entry. Keep checking the system as you may need to select a replacement.

Next step: After the sort, check and adjust your allocations. After you have been allocated to activities, your timetable will appear in the:

1) My Timetable tab in Allocate+ (shows all weeks)
2) portal (shows current week only).

You need to check messages in these systems in case you have any unallocated activities.

Some labs and support classes start in week 2 and will not show during week 1 in the portal.
