    hey how long do they leep the interviews going for?
    because my teacher is taking ages to finish my reference. and i havent sent my ucas form off yet.
    so if i send it straight away when i come back from the hols, will it be in good time still?
    do they hold iterviews right on into feb and march?
    or is there a time limit?
    Last year at BCU they were still interviewing in April so I wouldnt worry

    I'll let you know how it goes! Where is your favourite so far?
    My fingers are crossed for you! And so far I'm putting Manchester as firm and UEA as insurance - got an interview at UCL but I'm not too sure if I want to go there... What has been your favourite?

    How long does an offer usually take to show up on UCAS after you get a letter? My Leeds one is taking absolutely ages, i'm guessing it's because of christmas & new year and all thatt malarky. But it's kind of frustrating, and i don't want my Sheffield offer to take this long, too excited about it. What have people's offers from Leeds and Sheffield been?
    Hope everyone had a nice christmas! x

    Hi guys i was just browsing the internet for tips etc on SLT and this came up, really put me at ease about applying.

    Where are you applying?
    UEA for firm, and then applying to Birmingham and De Montford
    What grades do you need?
    BBB for UEA but i already have ABB so the grades shouldn't be a problem
    What subjects do you do?
    I studied Sociology, English and History at A levels, but im now meant to be at uni studying Sociology - really debating whether to go back and finish the year though =/
    Have you sent off your UCAS?
    Not yet next week it will be sent though!
    Did you get much work experiance?
    I only have w/e in a primary school, on Monday i will be ringing/sending letters to everywhere to try and get some though!


    Feel really far behind compared you guys!
    Good luck with your UCAS

    ive applied for SLT at

    Reading: sent me questions and i sent them back ..
    East Anglia: interview on the 14th december
    Manchester: conditional offer - AAB
    Plymouth: - havent heard anything

    im quite nervous for my interview ? i know they are going to ask me like 'why speech and language therapy' and i find this really hard to answer ? any tips ?
    Write down all the question that you think they will ask you, google interview questions if you need help, there are alot of really great questions/answers around. Prepare answers for each and add something personal, and opinion or experience to each, then just practice answering them. I know you might find it a bit silly, but it really does come across in interviews when people have done this.

    Ps. I help out with recruitment from time to time for a rather large company in the UK and believe me, PRACTICE, practice, practice. It will give you confidence in the interview. :yep:

    Hope this helps and good luck.

    firstly know your personal statement like the back of your hand! and be prepared to answer any questions about your work experience, like what you did and what you learnt from the experience. also have an answer planned for 'why slt?' and 'why this university?' so then you'll know exactly what to say and don't have to think about it if they ask you also think about any qualities you may have that'll be good for the profession and how your a-level subjects could help you.

    hope that helps!
