    I think they try to call but sometimes it's email or track. During the summer, when they'll need responses urgently, I think it's entirely phone call.

    Mmm, that is what I thought they said. What if you can't answer at the moment they phone?

    It's 14th sept according to their website, but there is an addendum which states session dates may be extended for medicine programmes. Probably best to call the med school before booking anything...

    Going to the Notts interview on Mon. There's aspects of both Swansea and Notts I quite like, so to have a choice would be nice.
    That said, I've done next to no prep for Notts :/ An offer would be pretty miraculous.
    I hear the cycle ride from Mumbles to Swansea is quite pretty though

    Haha don't worry I have been to busy with lab work and gallivanting to see friends last weekend to have done any prep so far. But that is what the weekend is for! Last minute oh god why prep. To be fair if you have done a few other interviews already it should really be a refresher rather than massive prep, it is sort of why I have been so relaxed in my approach.

    If only this weekend could be productive. I'm working all day today, all day Friday and the morning on Saturday. Then there's the rugby too!
    Basically it"s going to be epic cramming on Sunday for an 11am interview the following morning.

    Update from Swansea. 36 of the places have now been accepted so they are half full. It says for waiting list people to hold tight as deadline to inform UCAS is mid May. The 'Meet and Greet' event will take place on 5th June.

    Hey there,

    I used to have a user name on here last year, but it's not working so I'm starting from scratch.

    I hope I'm doing the right thing in sharing this, as I know what it's like to be on the waiting list, but some of the Warwick offers have been made, and Swansea have started making offers to people on the reserve list. I know this because I got a phone call earlier today offering me a place. (Phew! Epic relief!!!!!!)

    Anyway, hope I haven't scared anybody who's still waiting. Do hang in there - if I can get in, anybody can.

    People with offers: may I ask how long it took you to get your UCAS confirmation or an email from Swansea? I got my offer before lunch, but had nothing by the close of play. I'm a bit nervous, because I had the day off and drove up to see my Mum, who has now told *everyone*. Personally I'm waiting until I know it's real!

    Anyhoo, really looking forward to meeting those of you who can make the meet-and-greet in June. I'll be the one who's a good decade older than most of the people in the room .

    Congratulations! I don't think I got my offer through on UCAS for a couple of days after they phoned me and panicked that it was a scam until it was official on UCAS!
    Looking forward to meeting you in June!

    Thanks for letting me know. Glad it's not just me who started to panic. See you in June!

    Just took my occupation health form to the doctor's surgery for them to complete, to be told it will cost around £50 for the page to be completed. Jeez.
