In most cases, you will be able to register for your preferred WHM. However, some modules have a limited number of spaces due to the teaching space available. Where this is the case, students will be allocated at random according to their second, third and fourth choices to fill the number of places available.
Modules are not allocated on a 'first-come, first-served' basis. Where a module has received more applications than it has places, students will be randomly assigned after WHM Registration has taken place, based on their second, third and fourth choices. You will be able to check your module registrations on my.bham portal after 16.30 on Saturday 23 September 2017 to confirm which modules they are registered for.
If you are not given a place on your first choice of WHM, you will be allocated your second, third or possibly fourth choice WHM, provided there are places available.
