Re:

Officially, as has already been said, there is no preference given to 3rd year over 2nd year. However, as most 1st years live in Hall, there are a large number of people applying to stay in Hall for 2nd year, so the probability of each individual getting in is less. For 2nd year into 3rd year, there...

Basically, you're legally covered by your parents' licence if you only ever use the tv when it is running off the batteries. Otherwise, you need to get your own tv licence.
