    Good luck to everyone else with their applications etc.

    I put my final submission date which is 2017, but I was told you could do the stp while writing up. Guess I'll have to wait for the shortlisting scores to come out. Don't really understand it though, my application was infinitely better than last time but I did worse.
    Ah maybe it was the 2017 date then, I put 2016 as my completion date. I guess they might not want you writing up at the same time for some reason.

    Will we get a shortlist score at a later date for our applications if we didn't make it to interview or is that only afterwards?

    Does anyone know how many people get on to the shortlist reserve? Such a vague status...

    It is 1x the number of original posts for that specialism. Interviews are 3x the number then reserves are another 1x that amount.

    Hi, thanks. So i suppose if you were near the top end it isn't SO impossible (although it still pretty much is haha)-so close yet so far!

    Yeah, it's within the same trust I'm at now so I think my lab experience helped a lot! I applied for the haem&blood trans and immunology in the first application cycle I did. I've been unsuccessful again this time so sticking with the trainee BMS post I've got now! Good luck
    Good luck with the trainee BMS

    Hi, I've been invited to interview for Clinical Bioinformatics (Genomics) but I'm just finishing my undergraduate degree, so I honestly don't think it matters too much

    Thanks! Sorry to hear you didn't get an interview too... What are you planning on doing instead?

    Thank you. Looks like my pessimism was well placed. Plan is to increase my skills and try again next year. Need to be more relevant. It's going to be a long wait. Doesn't make me feel better but at least it gives me purpose and will hopefully stop me from stagnating.

    Yeah, I think that's the best we can do *nod*

    Rejected for immunology (not surprised with only 4 places) and shortlist reserve for Microbiology. Not terrible news I guess, but I don't expect an interview given they will still rate you against even on a reserve status.

    Do you mind me asking what kind of experience you have? Just so I know what they're looking for when I reapply next year 😊

    I really don't have a great deal of experience which is why I'm so surprised. I have been to visit a few fertility clinics - just one day experiences type of thing, and I have worked with a researcher at my uni, assisting her with mouse oocyte microinjections. Other than that its just lab experience which I have quite a lot of and I volunteer at a hospital weekly. I didn't expect to get an interview place as I read on here about so many people with more experience than me, so no idea what they are looking for really ha!

    Have you just graduated then? Yeah I have a few one day clinic visits, and I spent 4 weeks doing animal IVF but otherwise I haven't had much lab experience so that's probably my downfall!
