    Just got some detailed feedback from them, Was a bit surprised that they said they treated my application as a mature non grad(wasnt expecting that coz im still under 21). So i would have beeen interviewed. U needed 28( out of; i dont know) and i got 26. Pretty close
    can i ask how old you are? i'm a reapplicant under 21, hoping i'm not classed as mature non grad..

    BM5 mature student 25 yr old - still waiting too! I would have said 'mature' is anyone over 23, but as previous posts suggest it looks like anyone 21 or over who has achieved (already finished) A2 levels......... Who knows??? It is just a guessing game. Good luck to all still waiting.

    its strange thinking that we will all know by the end of the week after months of waiting, especially since its my last chance this year.

    I wish they would just hurry up so i could enjoy my week of work

    Do you mind me asking how did you request the feedback? Was it by email or post? I sent them an e-mail and got a reply similar to the standard letter sent to everyone and nothing specific about my application.
    Thanks
