Hello I have been invited to the assessment also on the 7th! Good luck to both of you!

Most worried about the numeracy element, do you know if a calculator is allowed?

I don't think calculators will be allowed, it'll hopefully be reasonably easy, probably not higher than GCSE level!

Hello!

Didn't think it was too bad, the questions were okay but I always have a massive habbit of rambling in interviews!! How did you find it? I heard it was some point this week we'll find out....waiting is the worst part!

It was the easiest interview I have ever had... I found them to be a bit cold faced not giving much info on how you did with the exception of the SU present.. I overheard some people while waiting sharing their questions and what made me an impression is that mine were completely different! So they either lied or there were different questions for different applicants??.. Also, I was the last to be interviewed and though mine went well quick just 10 min including my questions, while it seemed like other people's were taking longer...

My interview was pretty quick as well Steliana, I'm now slightly worried that I didn't answer the questions fully but hopefully we'll have both got through ok.

I was told they'd hopefully call us by the 14th regarding if you've got a place or on the reservation list. Think some of the past ones got emailed though. I'll probs wait until the 21st and then contact them if I haven't heard anything. Although does anyone have any clue as to who to contact? Janine Robertin?

Yes, I believe it is her who we have to contact, as I just emailed her and she said that we will know by the end of the week..

Yes my interview was also really quick, did find it a bit worrying at first but I suppose they didn't have too many questions they wanted to ask....frustrating having to wait to find out though! Has anyone heard anything yet? I was hoping we would find out today!

Congrats! :D

I'm in BEH as well although I said I'd prefer to be there. Were you hoping for C+I?

Also does anyone know if a facebook group/page has been created for everyone starting in Jan? I guess it's still early days...
