    I would give a little bit of time to brainstorm/note down a few ideas for whatever you have to do. Literally just half an hour or something, or even jot things down in bed before you go to sleep. And then you can focus on the essays, get them done and hopefully when you've finished your mind will have been working on the interview subconsciously! So it won't take as long to prepare.

    Yeah that's a good idea, maybe it will put my mind at ease, thanks!

    For my interviews I have to do a subject knowledge audit. I think most interviews require this. I wonder what this will mean though, becuase I think an audit is a little different to an actual test. I did a subject knowledge audit as part of a SKE course in the summer it was more supposed to be an honesty test really, to see what you think you don't know and do know. I don't know if the interview one will be much different, or if it's something I should properly revise for! (however I will never be able to cram a GCSE, A-Level and degree into three days!).

    Newman College, Birmingham: Interview

    Although they have got me to go through their online portal, my other choices have done so too. What was the point of UCAS then?!

    I know, UCAS didn't even let me know when it had updated so that was pretty useless. The only thing I keep checking it for now is an 'unsuccessful' for the one choice I haven't heard back from.

    Feel like I'm one of the last people waiting for a reference it sucks. I really thought I would have my application in by now, and it looks like I'm going to have to postpone my skills test. So frustrating, I've had no reply from the last two emails I sent.

    Hey hey, you can still complete your skills tests whilst waiting for the references...

    Make sure your print off your whole form(UCAS) (as proof that you've applied) before you go in to complete your tests...

    Someone on this thread said that certain test centres refuse to let you take it until you've sent your application off. I don't want to risk losing my first (free) attempt...

    It's frustrating!!

    I had to get the university department administrator to phone my referee at home. He is aiming to do it today, after lunch, but still nothing.

    However, I'm not sure what is going on, as weather here in North wales has taken a horrific turn and I've been evacuated from work. My referee lives near Bangor, where flood risk is high, so argh!

    Oh dear, that does sound worrying. I'm in Yorkshire and our weather is horrible too, but there's no flood risk. I hope it doesn't come to that where you are! Good luck.
