This is my update..

Royal Holloway UoL
Oxford
Bath
South Wales (screening test completed)

Not holding out much hope for South Wales as I didn’t finish the numerical reasoning test and rushed through the verbal reasoning test.. At least there are only a few more days to go now.. To everyone who so far only gots reds, hang on in there, there may be something to take away from this heartbreak!

Feeling pleased with UEA reserve as first year applying with fairly limited experience but it is a little frustrating that they don't tell you which number reserve you are!
Good luck everyone :)

It seems like UEA has a very strange assessment criteria. They sent me an email stating I do not meet essential criteria eg. Masters degree and PhD which I have both. :|

I thought I did terribly on the UEL test so I was pleasantly surprised to get that email! Definitely disappointed about Herts but 2/4 is not bad at all. :-)

Congrats everyone!
