    I did the interview day last year (I'm starting Eng Design in october!)



    EDIT: Just seen you've already done the day, how'd you find it?
    I thought the test went badly, the teamwork task OK and the interview well
    How did you feel you'd done when you came out of the teamwork exercise? Because I found it difficult to judge!

    Apparently like the Oxford TSA. Just a load of physics/maths basically.

    Has anyone heard anything yet about offers? I went to the interview on 1st December and thought it was pretty difficult (I swear the physical reasoning test should have been calculator!!!)

    I just got an offer yesterday, from the 15th of december interview day. No letter as of yet though, could be the whole not living in england thing :P. Thinking I'll accept. Anyone else?

    Congrats! Do they give actual offers on UCAS? I've heard all sorts about offers of offers. Sounds like i'm on the maybe list then, because mine was on the 15th too.

    They'd probably be annoyed if I put it as my insuarance and firmed Cambridge but I think I probably would, the course at Bristol does look amazing though and the work placements and links with industry probably are better than anywhere.

    I just got an email from UCAS saying that 'something had changed' and ended up with a conditional offer. I'm a little paranoid that an email will arrive saying something like 'that still means you're on the hold list', but hopefully not :rolleyes:

    I have the small problem that Imperial offered me a place on their aerospace course too.. So i'm now kinda stuck. I COULD firm imperial and make Bristol my insurance.. as I may not reach the imperial offer anyway. But would that have any disadvantages other than the whole not being guaranteed accommodation thing? Still not 100% knowledgable about the UK system

    Mine was on the 1st, so i'm either on the maybe list or rejected They said they'd reply in 3 weeks - it's been 6. I sent them an e-mail yesterday just checking to see if they'd sent me an letter than had got lost due to the snow and apparently mine was 'processed this week' and to 'keep an eye out on UCAS'. Again, ambiguous :\

    BTW, what offers are you guys getting? AAA or AAB?

    Well, I'm an IB kid, so I'm not sure how it exactly translates into A-level.. But My offer was 37 points with 6 out of 7 in Higher Maths and Physics. So about AA in maths and physics. And overall, in terms of tariff points, the grade is 582.

    PS: Just got my offer letter, so they may have sent a batch out recently?

    Keep in mind that other people are going to potentially be rejecting places which will then be re-offered to people. I had to reject Bristol as the grades they were asking for were unrealistic (AAA) as I only really wanted it as a back-up so hopefully someone will be getting a place in a few days (:
