    Hahahah that makes me feel loads better :P.

    Tbh - if we had a confirmation email - or even something on our Pearson Vue accounts that confirmed it had been sent, I wouldn't have needed to pester them .

    I really hope we aren't waiting until March!

    Helloooo
    I've heard of people receiving interview offers for Bristol. I haven't heard back yet so I'm feeling very nervous; any opinions?
    GCSEs 5A*6A
    AS AAAA
    A2 AAB- B in chemistry, which I am repeating and informed the uni, they accept resits.
    UKCAT avg 670
    I work as a care assistant in a nursing home, and have voluntary experiences in India and will be volunteering in Africa next month. I worked v hard on my personal statement and can only hope I've done enough
    You've got some cracking experience - fellow HCA here .

    Well from the few interview offers we've seen so far, they've invited people with UKCAT scores in the high 500s, so on that front you would be fine (although it's only 10%).

    Sadly as you know it's so heavily reliant on your PS that no one can really know .

    I'd have thought if you've managed to reflect well on what you've learnt from your experience etc I'd have thought you'd be in with a shot? The issue with the PS is that they can be so subjective - so what one person might think is good, another may not find it as strong .

    I wonder if personal statements are reviewed by more than one admissions tutor?

    Hopefully we'll hear from them soon enough

    Woooo HCAs unite!! I'm really hoping all my experiences have been worded well enough for me to be considered, and God lets hope there's more than 1 tutor reviewing PS, I'm sure there has to be? And good luck to yourself as well!xx

    Well, they are very personal statement heavy so as long as you conveyed your volunteer and work experience well, I'm sure you have a good chance.

    Gotta keep my fingers crossed! It's scary how they've started giving out interviews already though

    Bristol are being painfully slow this year! I've been trawling through last year's thread and Bristol were so much quicker with the interview offers!

    I wonder if all the December slots have been filled. There do not seem to be many people who have got them. Maybe not many people are using TSR this year. I got the "we are awaiting for your UKCAT email" on the 20th October and nothing since.
