I saw this queue and was confused as to what was happening. Luckily we live in a safe area but this shouldn't be happening.

But a message on the website of the Overseas Visitors Records Office says students are starting to queue from midnight, even though the office does not open until the morning.
It continues: "In the interest of health and safety we would kindly request that you do not start queuing at this time as it forces us to close our queues as early as 6.30am."

Each and every student must think 'oh ok I'm sure if I come later all will be fine. It's not like loads of people will ignore the request and I'll never get in'.
Brains of a copper in full view.

Important Message
Due to the start of the 2012-13 Academic year, our office will be experiencing a larger than usual number of customers attending to register. We operate on a first come, first served basis so it's advisable to attend early in the morning.
