    I've heard from Warwick but only because they've decided to process me as an overseas student for no reason... But basically I don't think it's their practice to send confirmation emails so I wouldn't worry 😊

    Oops, I'm assuming from your post that you are not an overseas applicant, I hope they've got it sorted now! Thanks for your message, I'm not really worried, was just trying to reassure LilithSternin, but it's good to know I need not be expecting an email

    I see you were as creative with your username as i was, hehe

    Thanks, that makes me feel better! My surname is very very far along in the alphabet so I'm choosing to believe it's that, rightly or wrongly.
    That may well be the case, Im very near to the beginning dont worry, you know your application had been sent as you can see it on track, and the 'welcome' emails have no bearing on your application, I know I didnt get emails from all my choices when I applied for my degree, but I got interviews at all of them

    Does anyone know of any good books that cover multiple mini interviews? Trying to feel optimistic about getting an interview!

    Still nothing from Newcastle or Warwick! I keep telling myself not to worry and it doesn't matter, but..DOES it matter? I don't really know if it means anything or not.
    I haven't heard anything from either of them either !

    Being ever so slightly desperate in my third cycle, I emailed Warwick. They replied with my application number :-) I am also at the end of the alphabet.

    Im glad they got back to you! Each cycle is new, and think of it this way, you have far more experience with the process now!

    Did they say when we can expect to hear regarding cutoff scores/interviews?

    Nope, just a very polite and concise confirmation. It will be December probably, they were the last to get back to me last year and the year before.

    I am just in the middle of chasing up my shifts from volunteering and it turns out that I have only around 50 hours or maybe a little bit more (which for some reason seems like a mistake as I was sure I have at least 100 hours). I will keep investigating that but I have a question.
    These hours have to be completed by the 15th of October or the time they request it/the interview? Have I just wasted a choice?
    Assuming youre talking about Warwick, the site says 70 hours by the time of your application, which i would imagine means 15th October, but they may be reasonable if you have it by the time they ask for it

    That's a bit ambiguous on but I remember asking on the Warwick open day about the 70 hour quota, which was confirmed by the admission tutor to be 70 hours minimum by the time of interview (December/January was the cut off to rack in 70 hours).

    But, I'm not too sure if this is definitive!

    For Warwick, how much detail does the form need? I volunteered on an ad-hoc basis (ie, whatever day/time, rather than on a rota) for a couple of hours a week over 2 years, so I easily have 70+ hours, but I didn't keep specific records of when I went in.
    Another voluntary thing was just a group of students, so I wouldn't have a clue who to give as a reference for that.


    (edit: I haven't got the form, this is just speculative!)

    Have you already received/started filling in the work experience form? I haven't even had a confirmation email from Warwick yet..

    No, sorry my post was a little misleading. It was just a general question, as I believe there will be one to fill in before interview?

    Also I didn't receive a confirmation email either.

    "We make every effort to process all applications as soon as possible, but please bear in mind that we have received approximately 3,600 applications for 343 places. Interviews will be held between mid-November 2015 and late February 2016 and candidates we wish to interview will receive an interview notification email to allow them to book their interview date and time."

    I just got that email too! Those numbers are terrifying, although I guess 1 in 10 isn't TOO horrendous...
