    Had my visit day last week, got a conditional offer for child branch today - so happy! It's my first choice . Anyone have an idea which accommodation they're applying for yet? I think I'm going to apply for Raleigh
    Hi, I got a conditional offer for child branch too so i will see you there i am looking at brodgate park accomodation because its the biggest so im hoping it will mean i meet a lot of new people.

    I really hope I get the grades....loads of incentive now . I did initially think that Broadgate would be the best but the students I spoke to at the visit day said that some nurses prefer Raleigh because it's situated between the two hospitals...to be honest I think I would be happy with either as long as I get on the course .

    Which visit day did you go to?

    Fingers crossed! .
    Same! I love how pretty it all is .
    Mine was on the 15th Feb, I was so sure they wouldn't want be because only 17 of the places are for child branch and I don't think I'm actually that good :unsure:
    I plan to firm it but I'm waiting for the last of my interviews to be over so I can work out an insurance . Had an interview for Cardiff today and one at Keele next tues (which I'll probably put as my insurance if they want me) .
    Which uni are you putting down as your insurance?

    Ohhh I have put Southampton as my insurance I had an interview at Cardiff 8th February but they said I wouldn't here until late march and I wanted to firm Nottingham so I withdrew (also I live in Cardiff and I really want to move away so I wasn't too sad ) good luck for the keele interview hope it goes well ...... I know what u mean about Nottingham on the way home I was gutted because I had gone fallen in love with the course only to be told there were 17 places I was like well that's my chance gone :L did u find the visit day bizarre I would have thought there would be some sort of interview I don't understand how they could have given offers off just the essay thing we wrote :s

    Yeah Cardiff said I would only find out if I have an offer on the 31st but a rejection can be given at anytime . If they end up giving me an offer and Keele don't then it'll have to be my insurance instead .
    Thank you! , Keele is probably the only other uni I can stand going to if the worst happens (hopefully not though haha).
    I went on a visit day to Nottingham in October and when I got home and eveyone asked me what it was like, my first answer was (and still is) 'it's so pretty' . I'm wondering how many offers they give out because I'm yet to find someone whose been rejected from the masters (or maybe they're too embarrassed to say).
    It was really strange! I thought the group discussion would be like a sneaky interview and everyone I spoke to on the day thought the same but it wasn't .
    The only thing I can think of is maybe they judged our enthusiasm for the course through the statement as we couldn't refer to notes or have someone check it over for us .

    What grades do you need for Southampton and what are you predicted?

    Haha yeah I did wonder that too because of the camera in the room . I think the lowest grades I'll need for Keele is really low - CCD or something like that, I'm predicted AAB but I think at maximum I'll probably only be able to achieve ABB anyway :/. Wow you're really smart! What subjects do you take?
