I agree with Bella. Last year I chose not to view the 'other' forum until after interview letters were out. If people get anxious it's their responsibility, while still being able to express that anxiety to peers who will understand.

Good idea to move the conversation to a separate thread. It makes sense to use academic informaton to aid selection (this is a doctorate after all!). There is a difference, however, between: 1) completely ruling out people with a lower 2:1 (which is still within the minimum criteria set by the cours...

I completely agree, as long as they are not just blanket discarding applications solely on the academic marks. I think I just find it very frustrating because when I graduated with my 'low' 2:1 several years ago, all you needed to get on the course was a 2:1, none of this percentage business. I can ...

Freaking out now, having applied to RHUL (a London uni). Surely that is unfair, if in the course criteria for application they don't say that? UCL are transparant and say those things, but the others do not. I agree that academic ability is important, and courses are well within their rights to set ...

You may be right, but I can't apply to a course based in Exeter, whereas I can apply to a course in Bath.

This made me laugh so much! Especially the bit about inventing a new psychology field.

On a serious note - glad the Bristol course is reappearing next year. If I don't get in this year I have an extra course I can apply to.

I actually feel physically sick. I really hate this process. Turning me into a nervous wreck.

<freaks out at the sight of RHUL being in colour>

How come they e-mailed you about the interview and letter-sending? Their interviews are so far away as well.

Thanks for the info re Southampton. Now I know they might be e-mailing the responses the wait is going to be even worse! At least when I thought it would be in the post I could put it out of my mind once the daily post had arrived. Now I'm going to be checking my e-mail constantly! Argh!

Hi folks, I usually post on Psyclick, but that is down, and I needed my CP frenzy fix, so I have joined you here! This is my third year applying, I'm in the middle of an MSc at Reading at the moment.
