After the email on Friday, surely they will tell us today...
they close at 5:30 though so why leave 70 emails until 4:45?

When they emailed Friday I didn't receive it until ~5 minutes after the first person posted about it on here, so don't be immediately dismayed. Keep checking for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, I'm still waiting....

the email said "you will be informed of the results" which surely suggests either way. If not it would say "you will be informed if successful"

Do you know for sure that it was only 70 who interviewed? I understand that in past years it averages about 80.

I have just phoned. The man on the line apologised for the further delays and said they're "waiting to hear back from the BPTC", whatever that means. I decided not to pursue him on what that was about, because it didn't seem fruitful.

He told me a message would go out within next half hour or tomorrow morning.

I asked him to consider including in the results email an account of why things had been so severely delayed. Hopefully everyone will get to see this.

That's ridiculous! But thank you for calling them!

Im not sure what your chances would be like with a second application. It is possible in theory. If you didnt join the inn yet you can switch and try a different one.

Im not reapplying - doing the bptc anyway as I already have a pupillage.

Epic fail of a day - rejections at FTB, 7BR and Gray's. I hope someone on here has had better news! I also felt my Gray's interview went very well, very disappointed. Not quite sure what to do about the BPTC now but oh well, the beat goes on.... Commiserations and congratulations as appropriate!

Don't be disheartened. Additionally don't do the BPTC without a scholarship or Pupillage. Be a paralegal in a litigation firm. It will A) help your chances of getting Pupillage/scholarship B) give you loads of exp C) aid your knowledge of practice and increase your chances of getting better grades.

The BPTC is an absolute sham. Don't put yourself in financial difficult over. You'll probably still be in -school-uni-BPTC-barrister-QC - five easy steps mode. I was and so many of my friends were. Honestly it won't matter. Give yourself a year to recoup
