      The best time to visit Machu Picchu is during the dry season (May-Aug), however I’d say that October isn’t that bad. Make sure to bring a raincoat and comfortable shoes.

      An experiation date is mandatory in case you want to access to the student discount.
      Yes, you can select the Circuit 2 as long as there’s availablity. Also, consider the option “Circuit 1 or 2 + puente Inka” which offers the same experience + a short hike to the Inka bridge.
