    Wishing Bedfordshire would hurry up with their decision to offer me an interview or not! I think they have forgotten about me

    Good luck to everyone waiting...

    There seems to be a lot of variety in interview dates, wait times to hear back etc. Pretty nerve-racking, I imagine.

    I got really lucky last year - I had my interview on 4/11 and found out on 5/11. No idea why it happened so quickly, especially as a lot of my friends on the course were interviewed/notified much later on. In other words, don't let it worry you [although I know that is hard] - a bit of a wait or a later interview date needn't be a concern.

    I was really lucky with Bangor university I had my interview on Wednesday and I found out this morning that I had a conditional offer. Fair play to people waiting 2 months the suspense would kill me! x

    Hi Guys,
    Anyone know what I should wear to my interview for primary?
    Do all males wear suits, I am guessing yes?

    Best of luck to every1 doing interviews.

    I am so nervous about mine!

    All but one of the guys at my interview for primary wore suits. The one who didn't wore jeans, a shirt and blazer I think. So I think suits ar a safe bet

    Good luck!!
