Re: The Great Big Progress Thread for 2016

Plymouth, RHUL, Exeter
South Wales

5th timer. Never had an interview. Is it kind of sad that I'm super happy to be 13th reserve for South Wales?!

Take care everyone.

I think it has to be done by tomorrow morning, Gem2010. Hope you see this before then.

Plymouth have said that they will use the GMA tests in conjunction with the application form.

Re: Anyone else feel stupid after all these shortlisting tes

I can totally relate to your sentiment, Strelitzia. No matter how many practice tests I do, I'll never be quick enough to do well in the numerical reasoning test. It's nice to know I'm not alone in feeling this way!

Re: Has anyone heard anything from Clearing House yet?

I have spoken to someone at the admin team at Plymouth. They didn't know an enormous amount about the new shortlisting process, however they did assure me that although they WILL be using a screening test they will also be looking at personal statements etc. I guess this means that they might have a...

Re: Has anyone heard anything from Clearing House yet?

The first replies usually start trickling in around the second week of Feb, but depending on where you applied you could be waiting well into March. :)

Re: Academic Referee

I would use the one you think will be able to say the most about your academic abilities. Maybe have a look at the sample academic reference (http://www.leeds.ac.uk/chpccp/ApplyRefChoose.html) and see who you think would be best placed to answer the questions in the most detail? If you look at the s...

Re: Masters level conversion fears!

Yes. Coulda woulda shoulda and all that! I think this year I will definitely try RHUL and Plymouth. But really not sure about the other 2. Thanks for putting me right about Surrey! I'm not sure why I thought they had changed their requirements- I think I'm slowly but surely losing my mind. Are you a...

Re: Low/Mid/High 2:1

I think you're right that the vast majority will have GBC from their first degree, but it's not that unusual for applicants to have conversion courses (I hope!). I can't believe that Unis will have just overlooked this. But to be safe, I'm not applying anywhere that specifies a high 2:1.

Re: Low/Mid/High 2:1

I'm super confused. I got a 2:1 for my undergrad, but my course never actually gave me an overall grade. If I work it out myself, it's about a 64. However, I did a Masters level conversion course and got a merit (I wasn't given an overall mark for this either!). When I've applied in the past, I've l...

Re: Masters level conversion fears!

I think Surrey have changed their criteria this year to a high 2:1, but I could be wrong (I often am!). Salomans could be a possibility, though I think it might be too far for me to realistically consider. What I wouldn't give to go back in time and spend less time in the pub and more time in the li...
