For me it's Birmingham

I know every year is different, but can anyone enlighten me on how much reserve lists usually move and especially Birmingham??

Any information would be appreciated..

Hey leftback. From the feedback I've heard its pretty much a piece of string question, but I've met someone that was as far as fifth down the reserves and got in. You have a better than average chance since Birmingham aren't among the last to offer (for example some above you in spots might be holding out for Cardiff etc. and if they get offers there you go up list). Do you know where you are on the reserve list? I'm intrigued how long Birmingham's reserve list is if you do know as that would tell me how MUCH further I definitely was from a place, lol.

Sorry to hear that Hockeygirl. But hopefully that means the Tees list will be moving now that Newcastle and Glasgow are out and you'll be joining us x

So i'm #2 on the reserve list, so i'm hoping it'll move!! No idea how long the reserve list is i'm afraid. What day did you interview at Birmingham? Sorry you didn't get the news you were hoping for

Interviewed last day leftback. Fingers crossed for you. Second reserve is a bloody good position to be in if not an automatic place :-) There were interviewees from all over on my day so there's bound to be a couple who get places closer to home in the next coupe of weeks I'd have thought. I'll cross it all for you :-)

Hi everyone I have just joined the forum but have been checking in regularly over recent weeks as a massively helpful source of help and support during the application process. This is my first time applying and have found it pretty stressful all in all. My results are:

Teeside
Newcastle --> Newcastle

I only applied to 2 courses so will be accepting the place at Newcastle. Is anyone else out there?! xx
