    Hi all, this may be a daft question but as I'm new to all this I'll ask anyway! Why are some Uni's in Extra if they haven't already interviewed their current applicants? Is it because perhaps they didn't have enough applicants applying to their course or what? TIA for any replies
    I really don't understand why they do this tbh, I can understand clearing and why they go into that but not extra.

    I would guess that they are just keeping their options open. I think it's just saying we are still open for new applications.

    Yes it'll be my first time going to uni, feels really strange doing it older!
    I'm also a bit older so it's nice to hear of other mature students. I hope i won't be the only oldie on the course! Where are you thinking of going?

    I don't know yet, I think DMU is currently my first choice! But I haven't seen Strath yet so I'm reserving the right to change my mind haha!

    Newcastle is amazing by the way, I live here :,)

    Literally draw up a list of pros and cons for each uni! And sit and stare at it....

    Also, prioritise what you want from uni, I.e societies, accommodation and facilities and choose based on that... Ultimately you'll graduate with the same qualification no matter where you go

    Is your interview soon? I am sure they still have lots of places left. I'm pretty sure that last year BCU were in clearing.

    Yes, end of March as I had to reschedule. I really hope you're right!!! I'm a bit worried that I won't get a place but trying to think positively about the whole thing

    DMU told me I'd hear this week but now they've made a 'last minute interview session at the end of March' so I 'may have to wait another couple of weeks'. My interview was in december, this is getting hard now ((
