Can't believe I'm actually posting this but I've just been offered a place from Staffordshire reserves!! :D mixture of shock and excitement and disbelief right now, what a roller coaster! I will post my journey to date later as I can't work the fonts etc on my mobile phone.
Good luck to everyone and keep at it as determination really does pay off!
Also to all the Staffordshire new trainees I will see you in Sept :D

4th time applying. First 2 years I didn't stand a chance, but in contrast to what many people say on here, think I found the process of applying and considering what to write helpful for the following two years.

2012
Sheffield
Newcastle
Teeside

Edinburgh

2013
Sheffield
Newcastle
Teeside

Edinburgh

2014
Sheffield
Newcastle (14th reserve)
Teeside
Edinburgh

2015
Sheffield
Newcastle
Liverpool
Edinburgh
Teeside

Bloody hard work getting all them colours right! Far from the triumphant image I've always had of writing this post..I feel this may be a good metaphor for things to come. BUT UNTIL THEN :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Hello all, after shyly lurking awhile, here is an update:

3rd time applying (the first time was straight out of undergraduate, no experience, mostly to practise the form!)

2010/11:

Oxford
UCL
IOPPN
Royal Holloway


2014/15:

Oxford
UCL

IOPPN
Royal Holloway

2015/16:

Surrey
UCL (place declined)
IOPPN (place accepted)

Royal Holloway (withdrew from interview)

Well done to everyone else who has a place, and commiserations to those for whom 2016 was not their year - from past experience I know it can feel awful, but keep at it.

This is all great fun, but it has confused me further about the five courses - I keep going back to count!
