I know it's irrational, but I'm frustrated that Oxford responses aren't out yet. I have been so tense for the past 3 days waiting for them! I guess that's the downside of trying to predict the unpredictable.

Was about to post my progress so far but been cut short rather sharply... I received an invitation to interview at Bath at around 1pm (yaaay) but have just received another saying I haven't been shortlisted (cry!).
I have contacted them regarding this and am twitching waiting for a response. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen today?!
Oh my god :O That's rather terrible! Fingers crossed it's an interview!

Same over here too!

I know there are a lot of emotional rollercoasters being experienced out there at the moment and some hugely frustrating things going on, but please, people, don't swear on the forum! Let's keep it professional, however heightened emotions are.

First year applying, first response & first red :(

Leicester
Birmingham
Oxford
Herts

On the plus side, I found out today that I'm going on some really interesting training for work, which just happens to fall on Leicester's interview week so I would have struggled to get time off anyway. Every cloud....

You'd be surprised by how much 1st week interviews can move sometimes! :) I don't know about Leicester, but I know one of the early ones moved 13 last year. It's a great result anyway and not at all out of the realm of possibility. Congrats!

Hi again,

I cant work out how to do the quotes thing to respond to everyone who replied to my predicament (bit of a technophobe) but I'm relieved to say that I HAVE been shortlisted for interview and the rejection email was an administrative error, phew! Thanks for your well wishes :D

So I can finally do this, first time applying:

Bath
South Wales
Exeter
Coventry & Warwick

Best of luck to everyone :)
