I still haven't. The status on clearing house has changed this morning to 'pending result' and that's it!
I'm wondering whether to contact them or just wait until Clearing House updates?

They've said that the clearing house status will be updated tomorrow, so probably no benefit in refreshing it anymore today

Does this mean they've likely called all those successful?

Are Edinburgh ppl still waiting on results? Looks like Staffordshire won't be releasing theirs for a while...……….
Yep, still waiting. In my interview they said they'd aim to let people know by 29th May. I have an offer elsewhere that I think I'm going to accept but it's hard to definitively make that decision until I've heard back from Edinburgh. Good Luck! :)
The wait is killing me! I can't count how many times I've refreshed my emails- anyone heard from Staffs yet?

Edinburgh --> Edinburgh
Glasgow --> Glasgow
IOP
RHUL

Think I'm going to go with Glasgow, but I'm tempted by Edinburgh! I got my first choice of health board for both. Quite speechless.

Fifth time applying, although the first three applications were... not great, and a bit thoughtless.

Lancaster ...> Lancaster
Edinburgh ...> Edinburgh
Leeds ...> Withdrew
Glasgow ...> Glasgow

I'll be accepting Edinburgh and withdrawing from the rest!

Edinburgh > Edinburgh
Lancaster > Lancaster
Trent > Trent
Leeds

So all the results are in now, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to accept my offer at Lancaster but I’m still mulling over Edinburgh as I’ve been offered a place in NHS Lothian, which was my top choice.
Got some thinking to do over the next week or so!

I feel I must post this for those who were not successful this year in gaining an interview. I moved into the psychology field a little later (mid 20s). I have applied 4 times with the following results:

Degrees:
BSc Neuroscience (Hons) - 2:1 - 2015
MSc Psychology (Conversion) - Pass - 2016
PG.Dip CBT for Anxiety and Depression (IAPT) - Distinction - 2019

Relevant Experience: Over the past 3 years
3 months as a voluntary Research Assistant
A few shifts as a band 2 bank Health Care Assistant over 2 months
3 months as a band 4 Graudate mental health worker
1 year as a band 5 Assistant Psychologist
1 year as a band 6 trainee CBT therapist
6 months so far as a band 7 qualified high intensity CBT therapist - Current post.

2016/17 - aged 26 (applied before I graduated in conversion course)

Oxford
Trent (invited to test day)
Cardiff (invited to online test)
Kings


2017/2018 - aged 27

Oxford
Trent (invited to test day)
Kings
Cov & Warwick
QUB


2018/2019 - aged 28

Trent (invited to test day)
UCL
Cov & Warwick - feedback form from uni had a written statement stating 'encourage to apply again'
Birmingham
QUB


2019/2020 - aged 29

Trent (invited to test day)
Birmingham
Cov & Warwick

Manchester (invited to online test) - they won't tell us what number on reserve list
QUB

So I just wanted to say please please continue to persevere if this is what you want to do as it will come to you, but do not put your life on hold for it either, you are so capable in this field and there are multiple avenues into being able to be a qualified clinician within psychology such as my current role and this will only strengthen your applications further. Who knows If I will be successful this year however I know if I am not then I am still making progress in my career and following my passion within psychology. Good luck to you all! :)
Update: Manchester are moving on their reserve list, moreover I have also been offered a band 8A Senior CBT therapist & LTC Lead post, so just more evidence to show that progression in 3 short years (band 2 to 8a) highlighting that clin psych is not the only way to make it in psychology!:

Trent (invited to test day)
Birmingham
Cov & Warwick

Manchester (invited to online test)
QUB
Update: Manchester have got back to us:

Trent (invited to test day)
Birmingham
Cov & Warwick

Manchester (invited to online test) - they won't say what number on reserve list for place
QUB

Feeling a mix of emotions with this, but not a bad result for my first interview.
Update: Queens have got back to us:

Trent (invited to test day)
Birmingham
Cov & Warwick

Manchester (invited to online test) - they won't say what number on reserve list for place
QUB

Disappointed with the outcome for QUB however still waiting for Manchester final outcome!
