First time applicant here.

UCL --> 1st on reserve list
Royal Holloway
IoPPN
Leeds

Do previous applicants have any idea of how much the reserve list usually moves? I'm very eager to find out a bit more info from people more experienced than myself, so any responses will be truly appreciated.

Best of luck to everyone :-)
From what I've heard previously, it budges ever so slightly by a couple of spaces. A lot of people will do anything they can to get to their interview unless personal circumstances change, which means very few would give up their interview place.

The good news is that you've done very well to get to the top of that reserve list! So well done and good luck! :D

And I hate to be that guy, but according to the thread instructions, a "reserve list for interview" is in orange text, whereas the light blue is for "reserve list for place". You had me very confused and worrying if I had missed an interview or something! :shock:

Conoro 27 I'm so so sorry - I'm clearly not very experienced with using this forum, ha! I apologise for stressing you out - any additional stress during this process is very unnecessary. Thank you for the reply, I can completely see your point. I guess 1st reserve is a weird position to be in because it can go either way. So close yet so far. And the waiting continues.. Good luck to you too!
