I can't quite believe I'm saying this but I've been accepted to bath!

I thought the interview went well but didn't think went well enough to feel I was in with a chance of being offered a place.

Good luck to anyone else waiting to hear back today! I think I need to lie down...!

Congrats! Well done Gez1809!

(And of those who went for Bath and Exeter, please accept a place at Bath so the reserve list might move for those (me) at Exeter!)

Just had an email from Trent saying there has been a delay in sending out their letters and these will be sent early next week. Very stressful waiting!! :-(

This is crazy I had completely psyched myself up for the results this week and now the stress is being prolonged! I wonder whist circumstances are beyond their control as suggested in the email?

Has anyone tried to contact Trent to see if they will let us know the outcome of the interviews via email? Im sure they wont but I would guess there are many candidates out there frustrated at having to sweat for another week when we were told it would be at the latest today!

I think last year a lot of people heard for clearing house before they received their letters... Maybe that's a possibility?

I think there has been some movement in the reserve list for interviews at sheffield however i dont know by how much...(i know someone who was on the reserve list who got called but i dont know what no. she was). Might be worth chasing it up with the Uni?
Hi evat, thanks for your reply. Sheffields last day of interviews is today, I kind of knew that I wouldn't gain an interview there as I'm 50plus on the reserve list. Staffs reserve list is a pain though as they haven't told us whereabouts we are, and my brother is getting married that weekend abroad, I wish I knew whether to stay at home/uk all week during Staffs interviews or just go abroad and help with the wedding preparation. Still till not sure whether to prepare for the potential interview or not. :? It's nice to see lots of blues on here already :)

I checked and there has been no change - perhaps the unforseen circumstance they refer to has meant that they haven't even shortlisted yet.

Hi Bubbly, It may be worth contacting Staffs and explaining that it is your brothers wedding over the interview dates, they may be able to give you an indication of how likely an interview would be? I did this a few years ago for a course which doesn't tell you where you are on interview reserve, as I was due to be abroad over the interview dates. They gave me a good indication of likelihood, and I was able to make an informed decision! Plus, you have little to lose! Good luck!

This may sound like a really daft question,

but how do people know if they are on the reserve list? Does it say in the letter from the uni?

Or is it just a case that you had a rejection, but figure you must be on the reserve list?
