I feel quite lost. I knew I didn't do too well but I'm not really sure how much harder I can try.
I have Bath in a couple of weeks... any advice is always welcomed!
What firegal said.. also, remember, getting an interview alresdy means you are doing great and there really is a tough competition. I think ppl selecting must have a hard job as I think most folks who gets this far is pretty awesome. Keeping fingers crossedn for Bath!

I was due to interview at Coventry next week but will now be cancelling this. Good luck to whoever gets that space and to everyone involved in this process.

I have found this forum very helpful and supportive, but as a confidence-lacking lurker, I have not really contributed to it. When I get the confirmation letter (and can be sure that my mind has not played a cruel trick on me), I will post on the multiple timers/alternative experience thread


Nospringchicken, your Coventry interview went to me :) and I am very happy to say that I have been offered a place! So my status is now:

Coventry
Leicester
Birmingham
Oxford


Can't thank you enough for cancelling your interview!

I feel very fortunate (probably like these two http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-humber-32149418) to post:

Leeds
Manchester
Sheffield
Trent


My advice to anybody with interviews coming up and unsure about travel arrangements - if you can afford it, stay in a hotel nearby the day before. I had a last minute train cancellation for one interview and two diversions due to road traffic accidents for another. I arrived at those interviews feeling rather stressed and unprepared.

Good luck all with interviews and news to come :)

Thanks! :D They were my top two choices (have lived and worked in both areas) and haven't quite made my mind up. Sorry for my uncertainty.

I don't think you have anything to apologise for :D It's a big and important decision. Whatever you decide, one other person is going to be over the moon as they will get a place from the relevant reserve list :D :D

It must be a great feeling, well done. And I agree, nothing to apologise for! Good luck making your decision :-)

Hi Ranna,
I've been in your shoes more than once, and know how painful it is, and how hopeless things seem.I wish I had magic words of wisdom, but I don't. All I can say is take care of yourself and be compassionate. I'd focus more on keeping anxiety low and mood up by doing nice things (like a massage, yoga, or whatever) than on preparing. It's so easy to over-prepare, but impossible to over-self-care. xxx

Well good luck to all the Teessiders! after a week of interviews. I don't think I did very well but I must say it was weirdly a lovely experience. My trainee helper was absolutely fab and the panel members were very nice. x :mrgreen:
