I was just wondering in what format did people find out about Glasgow interviews or reserve interviews?
I have an email from them but too anxious to check it. Thanks

Feeling very upset although I did realise my experience is not very strong, which is why I was hoping that courses with selection tests would work in my favour. The numerical however just threw me despite trying hard to prep and practice.
It is my first year applying but I am in my late 30s and with graduating 10 years ago as a mature student and now having children and mortgage and still having limited opportunities to get that right work experience I am not sure right now if it is worth trying again. I know that everyone who has got an interview deserves it and wants it as badly as me - its not like someone pips you for a job and you think you could do better. There has to be a cut off point and I just didn't get over the line. What is hard is that I know I would make an excellent Clinical Psychologist. I have given up a career in Public health management to work in mental health so it just feels I am left with nothing and I am fast approaching 40. Wish I had made some better choices in my 20s!! Anyway I wasn't going to post but I read somewhere it is good for people to see the realistc side to the decisions and processes so others with 4 rejections don't feel like they are the only ones. I also wanted to post as I do feel quite different as a mature applicant and a parent. Its tough making decisions between a career you are passionate about and what is right for your family. So if thats you, you are not alone and I wish you the very best whatever your outcomes.
I just wanted to reach out as a fellow mummy, I understand your perspective and considerations, I had to select course centres geographically. As hard as it is sometimes I have very much tried to re-frame and consider how my chosen path has made me a better candidate (I did a conversion course) I hope once I have dealt with the emotional aspect of everything I will be in a better place to start thinking about next year. As you said it's your first year of applying so i hope this next year offers you more learning experiences and opportunities, take care. PM if you want to chat
