    Considering liverpool has 4000 that's good right?

    Sorry I can't remember if these statistics were posted earlier but how many interviews are given out/how many places??

    haha i cant remember either but from what i know, they'll interview around 850 and give about 275 offers (im not sure if this info is based on last year or if its for this year). yehh the ratio for SGUL is much better so higher chance for an interview hopefully

    Ahh that's not too bad (I think) how many people will they interview? Where did you get that figure from

    Someone posted it on here last week or the week before, I think they called up soon after the deadline closed.

    It's so annoying that one of my work experiences is insisting on giving me a certificate rather than the LETTER I SPECIFICALLY asked for to verify my work experience.

    Sorry, i just want to know where you get your info from? On the sgul website it says they invite essentially the top 600 to interview. Did they invite more last year?

    will they accept certificates if it doesn't have some of the information they require? for example, none of my certificates state the number of hours i did and only the date?

    Yes they will. I took 2 certificates with me to my interview last year and they accepted them.

    i think they would want some kind of evidence, for everything you put on your PS, be it certificate or letter.

    Thanks for your response.

    But i was wondering whether i'd need proof for things such as tennis and Young Enterprise because they're not exactly "formal work experience" but just extra curric?

    The email quotes:

    "Candidates invited to interview will also be asked to submit evidence of any formal work experience undertaken."

    Thank you

    Oh right, i don't think you'd need one for those, but if you have certificates for things like SJA & DofE i suggest taking them along to the interview, just in case

    & you're welcome

    So I'm putting together my work experience letters. I've done the following:
    A week at a general hospital (shadowing)
    Volunteering at a care home once a week for a year
    Volunteering at a school for children with learning disabilities once a week for a few months (ongoing)
    A day at a GP surgery

    I mentioned all of the above in my PS but I don't know if I should bother with the go surgery letter since it was only a day. What do you guys think?
