Congrats on all the blues so far!

Just to let everyone know that the UCL reserve list has moved at least one place as I heard by email this morning that I have been offered an interview.

Best of luck to everyone!

Hi Everyone,

Good luck with interviews.

Would it be ok if anyone hears from reserves lists etc that it is posted under "the big interview reserve list thread." This would be really helpful for all of us anxiously waiting to hear.

Many thanks!

Leeds
Leicester
Sheffield --> Sheffield :cry:
Trent

Really loved the Sheffield interview day and felt I had improved somewhat this year so was disappointed not to make the reserve list. The others in my group we're fab though so not surprised.

I think, during feedback, it would be helpful (if a little painful) to know where we were ranked overall.

2017:
Trent
Leicester
Coventry & Warrick
Birmingham


2018:
Staffordshire
Lancaster

Trent
Leicester

I'm incredibly pleased to get this far this year. I thought my Leicester interview went terribly but must have been able to get something across. I'm second on the reserve list for Leicester any ideas how much the lists usually move? Please let me know if anyone declines their place at Leicester.

:D :D :D :D :D :D

I've heard it can tick down quite quickly, particularly for the courses with earlier interviews. I heard this about Manchester, but I'm sure it's the same for Leicester.

Congrats clinpsymember - were you one of the late group on Tuesday? I think (judging by your other interview colours) we interviewed at the same time (we were given our role play hand-outs together!). Unfortunately I didn't get an offer :cry: I thought I'd done quite well but according to my feedback my interview & written task were pretty bad. Nevermind - maybe see you at Trent :)

Hello! Ahh yes, that was me! I'm so sorry you didn't get an offer, I thought you'd really deserve it! That written task was awful though, I'm sure most people will have done quite badly at it. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for Trent for you!! :)

Was in a bit of shock initially as I did everything that I said I wouldn't do so had written myself off.
