Re: How many years after graduation before you got on the co

I graduated 8 years ago, but spent the first couple of years working in an un-related field whilst volunteering, and then another couple of years working in a relevant field but considering Social Work. Then 3 1/2 years ago I was lucky enough to get a position working with a CP and realised I was mu...

Re: How many times did you apply?

I applied twice, but I waited until I felt ready (I graduated from my undergrad 8 years ago). 1: 3 outright no's, 1 interview from a selection test. 2: 1 outright no, 1 invitation to selection test which didn't result in an interview, and 2 interviews from selection tests. For me, I felt ready to ap...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Thank you for sharing purpledot. A few years back when I was first using the forum you didn't really have many people posting unless they'd been successful and I think it gave a skewed view of how many people were getting on and personally it made me feel rubbish! I find this a much more supportive...

Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Have deliberated over posting results so far as I feel quite disappointed that my nerves got the better of me in my first interview this year and I froze mid-way through a question...

Re: Has anyone heard anything from Clearing House yet?

I've been invited to both Lancaster & Plymouth, can I just confirm that there will be two separate links to take the test twice (once for each institution)?

Re: Chosen to do psychology but still have doubts

Just to add quickly, that if you're planning on doing a joint honours degree, don't forget to check if your course still gives you GBC (Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership with BPS) as not all joint honours offer this, and you would need GBC if you wanted to persue further training in Psychology...

Re: Pending release to course centre

Re: Plans for the year ahead

Hi Geishawife, Thank you for your reply, and please accept my apologies for not being clearer. I think perhaps my question is coming from a place of anxiety, which is why I struggled to articulate it and I'm a little embarrassed for asking what I think may be an irrational question :oops: I'm aware ...
