Re: Advice for mature applicant / parent starting out

Wow. Thank you Ell for your honesty. As a full time working mum to two boys, about to start my first year as a trainee, I can totally relate to those feelings of guilt. For me, that is far harder than balancing the practicalities of parenting/ working. I really don't think I would even consider trai...

Re: Manchester 2016

Thanks for starting the group Charlotte. Looking forward to getting to know you better and meeting all you other trainees. I'll be commuting from Staffordshire so will be using the train on uni days. Hope you have a fantastic summer and have lovely things planned. Keri

Re: Reserve list for places 2016

I have accepted a place at Manchester. There are some of us out there! I guess I haven't posted it on here before now as I'm still trying to process it. As this was my third year of applying I was coming to terms with it never happening for me. A case of stunned silence (but extremely happy).

Re: How many times did you apply?

I have been successful on my third application. I approached the interview in a very different way from those before it. I really believe talking through all my thoughts and decision making, and just being me, got me through the interview. The best advice I had from a Consultant Clinical Psychologis...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

I just tried to explain to my husband about the boxes... he looked at me as if I'd finally lost it! :lol: Maybe best to keep that sort of musing to myself! Keeping fingers crossed for everyone still waiting for news. I noticed in the post (on page three of this thread I think) with the dates when e...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2015

Fantastic news lp22 and butterfly123. Just had an email from Manchester too. I'm on the reserve list. Quite pleased really as I was thinking it would be a straight no. Not expecting too much as Manchester is one of the first places to interview. Oh well, nice to be considered. Second year of applyin...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2014 Applications

Hi. How long does the pending result stay on the clearing page before the results are actually out? The staffs result has been pending for over an hour and I'm at risk of developing repetitive strain injury from refreshing the page!

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2014 Applications

Did anyone else have their heart in their mouths when they saw the email from staffs/keele about interview feedback only to realise it was for us to feedback to them? My heart rate had only just returned to normal! :shock:

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2014 Applications

I'm sorry to hear about your Birmingham result Magicbobcat. It was a no for me too. I'm still waiting for the staffs result but I thought the Birminham interview went better so not holding out much hope. Enjoy the summer!

Re: Older/Mature Students

I am also a mature first time applicant at the ripe old age of 34. My application was reflective of this and how my experience of having a family (full time mum for 6 years) has contributed to me developing confidence in my abilities and decision making, and has led to be becoming more reflective as...
