Lancaster
Glasgow

Sheffield

Queens
UCD (1st interview) ---> UCD (2nd interview)

Does anyone who applied for Trinity know when they plan on offering people places? Don't think the UCD reserve list will budge unless people get offers this week.

Hi CMc, congrats on your interviews! Trinity had suggested that it would let people know last week but I haven't heard of anyone getting an email from them. I'd say it's very likely to come at the start of next week and could well shift your place on the UCD reserve. Good luck!

Fourth time applicant and delighted to report...

Bath
Exeter

IoPPN
Southampton


Think by now I've established that additional tests/questions are not my strong suite! I think completing a Masters also helped with my application to Southampton this year. To those of you who's journeys have reached their end for this year, I feel your pain, trust me, but if it's what you really want, take some time out to feel the frustration and bounce back again come September.

Now just to get through the interviews!

Thank you for replying Golightly. I really hope it does move and I get another chance. Good luck to you as well!

They told us the wait would be up to 3 weeks, which would be up next Wednesday. I'm certainly also hoping we do hear by then!!

Third time applying too so I'm pretty disappointed. I hate how this process makes you doubt your ability, even though this is something I feel so passionately about and I feel strongly that I would be a good trainee. The competition is fierce!

I don't know whether anyone is still waiting to hear from Exeter but after my clearing house status changed on Friday I emailed them; they confirmed that the update was correct and I did have an interview with them. They sent their decisions out on Wednesday but for some reason some people did not receive the emails.

If anyone is still unsure it may be worth checking clearing house/dropping Exeter an email.

Well done to everyone, whatever colours you have - it's a tough process and takes courage and resilience, whatever stage you get to. Be kind to yourselves :)

Here's my results so far this year :D

For anyone else waiting for Trent, did anyone think to ask at the test when we'll hear back at all? I've emailed admin and they've said that they count the test as the first part of their interview and they therefore don't have to uphold the 16th as their deadline for letting us know, and that they do not have a new date within by which they will inform us..
Third time applying, first time I've got interviews!! Very excited/nervous
