    Ok thanks, hopefully it'll be something not too bad! Do you know what the group discussion was like?
    All the person said was that the people they were paired with talked a lot and that they struggled to get a word in edgeways, but they didn't say what was involved, sorry

    I'm sure it won't be too bad! Stirling is my first choice too, but I'm the same, anywhere would be great I've got an interview for Glasgow (Dumfries campus) on tuesday but that's the only other one I've heard back from.
    Seems Stirling aren't doing interviews this year though so it's all just based on our application :/
    Where else have you applied?
    Oh that's good!! I applied to Stirling, Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh and UWS... Dundee is the only one I've heard back from. Yeah I got an email from Stirling saying it'll be late feb/ march before we here back. What specialism did you choose for there? It's so nerve wracking all this waiting!!

    Yeah, I have no idea what the interviews going to be like but I'll just have to wait and see! I've applied to UWS aswell, do you know how long they've taken to reply in previous years? Yeah, but at least we know how long it'll be! I went for the modern languages specialism, which one did you choose? I know, I wish they'd just hurry up and tell us!
    I've no idea how long they take to reply, I might drop them an email to ask. I choose the early years specialism

    Hey guys! I have an interview for Strathclyde on the 21st March. I'm terrified! That's the only place I've heard back from though. I've applied to Stirling, Glasgow and Dundee as well. I've heard that Stirling aren't doing interviews this year though, does anyone know if this is true?

    In the nicest possible way, I'm not saying anything :P Sorry, but you shouldn't get a better chance over anyone else solely because you knew what was going to happen.

    The interviewers are all really nice though and a tip is get to know the people. You'll be sitting in a room for about 2.5 hours waiting for your interview and if you chat to the people the day goes a lot quicker and get to know them over lunch. The group thing is after lunch and is so much easier if you know the group.

    Sorry for being horrible :P

    I was offered an interview for Strathclyde, Aberdeen, Dundee and West of Scotland, but I've got an Unconditional from Edinburgh (that came in on Saturday), and Edinburgh has always been my first choice. WOOOO~

    Good luck with all your interviews guys, I hope you all get what you're hoping for (:

    I have an unconditional from glasgow and got another today for the MA course in the Glasgow Dumfries campus but still haven't heard back from strathclyde or Dundee... I applied two days before the deadline date so I'm hoping that's why, I can't choose whether I would want to go to strathclyde or Glasgow, I've heard strathclyde has the better reputation?
