2nd time applying, after a very under-prepared attempt last year that resulted in 3 interviews, 2 justified rejections, and one agonisingly near miss as 1st reserve.

Bath
Birmingham
Coventry
Exeter

Good luck everyone!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm considering whether to apply this year for this very reason, I bought a house last summer so I'm not very flexible and trying for a baby this year too. Exciting to read I'm not the only one in this position and I'm having my fingers crossed you'll get in to the course and best of luck with the little baby!

Bangor
Leicester
Glasgow
Oxford

Little disappointed- I called Bangor for feedback and found out that the final decision to not interview was based on the ranked score of my final year grade average. Whilst acknowledging the incredibly high caliber of other applicants, and the need for such methods in whittling down the applicant pool, I felt a little powerless and hopeless for future applications. The woman who gave feedback was so nice and really helpful- I'd highly encourage any one who is considering it to do so.

Good luck all!

I couldn't figure out how to edit my original post but I've just updated it with screening tests I've been invited to :?

2nd time applicant

RHUL
Surrey (written test done)
IOPPN
Essex

Feeling slightly worried as felt Essex might be highest probability of getting an interview, based on the applicant ratios, and found the Surrey test extremely hard. Long month ahead!
