    Any reserves had an offer or any offers upgraded yet? I don't know whether to still be hopeful they haven't done another round of offers yet, or accept the fact I haven't yet been offered when they did
    I had an offer come through this morning for my first location preference. I was reserve for Microbiology. It said my offer expired 18/05/16 11:00 so there may be another wave of offers coming out after Weds? And that's assuming that they released all this morning's offers in one batch as there may be more coming tomorrow.
    I had given up entirely for this year and in fact my partner accepted a new temp job last Friday on that assumption (so now we're going to be apart for 6 months starting in September) so don't give up hope yet!!!

    Hello hurriya,

    I am exactly in the same position as you. 1st on the reserve list for clinical engineering. I just phoned them and they said that people who have offers have till 20th to hold on to them. People on reserve might still have a chance based on what happens on 20th. May be this will give you a little comfort.

    Hey joycejoy, Its horrible when you know your so close, 20th seems like a life time away. I wonder how reserves work do you just get any location or do people get to get their upgrades first?
    So theres still a bit of hope till the 20th then

    This whole process is just so unclear to me . I have no idea about upgrades. I also have this doubt. What happens when a place becomes available and it is your 8th preference and someone just below me on the reserve has it as their 1st preference? Would they get it or me?

    Did they happen to say if there was more coming through before then that they were processing? Or did they say if the are processing them as they are received or doing offers in batches?
    Thanks!

    it doesn't matter if it's your 8th preference. they will offer it to you first, then if you decline it it will go to the next one on the reserve list.

    they didnt say anything. But apparently all specialisms can hold on to offers until 20th. After that they might be releasing next wave in batches (similar to the first wave). This is what I feel.

    I think it would be you who they would send the offer to first then depending on whether you decline or accept it would go to the next person

    I got my feedback send to me today. Apparently there are individual shortlisting scores for the different domains. There are 7 numbers and they cant disclose what each domains are. So basically we dont understand where we got marked low so we cant improve next year

    Hello everyone,

    After 3 years of trying, I finally got an offer for Clinical Biochemistry! The offer is in Cornwall, which is very far from home, friends and family but I'm taking it as an opportunity!

    I know there is only 1 position for Clinical Biochemistry at the Royal Cornwall Trust so was just wondering if anyone from another specialism is also posted there? Or if there is a current STP student in Cornwall who would be able to give me advice in regards to moving there?

    Congratulations to those with offers, best of luck to those applying again next year and fingers crossed for those on the reserve list!

    😊
