    I still haven't heard anything but I think I might do the tasks anyway because unis are supposed to send out decisions by the 31st. That way if I did get an offer (unlikely, but I can hope) then I can just submit the tasks. If I hear nothing I wont bother submitting them. All depends on whether I have enough time to do them though...
    hehe fair enough! I thought it would be outrageous to assume that all of the processes to getting an offer and firming it could be completed ASAP, but since I posted that I found out I had an interview for today on MONDAY! It's over and he said I'd have an unconditional offer :eek:
    Awesome! So now I just will have to firm it when they sort it, he said it would be asap. Then I can submit my entry without feeling like a complete fraud! haha!
    So yes, don't hold back! You never know what can happen within days!!! Goodluck! I hope they reply to you soon, it's unbareable hanging on :mad:

    Congrats!:clap2: I'm glad I never got round to doing the tasks, got a rejection this afternoon (as expected due to the popularity of the course). Would have been such a waste of time if I had :sigh:

    Hey, I got through too curious about the next set of questions...
    my answers were
    1 - 3000
    2 brain circulation
    3 gene targeting
    4 eco-economy or something similar
    5 1965

    Looks like none of us got the same...? Maybe they just had to pick people who got 4 or more or something if hardly anyone got it right! I was pretty sure I had got some wrong?
    The people on Facebook we have to subscribe to have about 170 ish subscribers each so that must be about the number of people through?
    It's pretty funny because I got through 1 and had 17000, same, homologous recombination, ecological modernisation and same XD.

    Old but still wanted to mention it.

    The video challenge is just effort. I don't think I'll manage to match a good video of myself doing something "awesome" XD.

    Haha, coincidence that it was on that day, but really. It's 3 cubes and I was wondering is this part of a Rubik's cube and then you twist one of the cubes and out pops the stick.

    I'll upload a photo but the camera needs charging.

    Did you take part for round 3?
    It came with a letter saying that I was out. I had been put down for round 3 though however I didn't actually do anything for round 3.

    EDIT: I never uploaded that photo :/

    That's exactly what I thought! Weird but I'm really nervous, I'm thinking sometime this week surely?
    There are so many good videos - I've been stopping myself from watching them because I always end up hating mine afterwards... haha :]

    and @TheGrinningSkull I submitted an entry and everything for part 3 and haven't heard anything from them! At least there is the possibility of a memory stick if I'm not through :] It sounds really cool!
