:awesome:

How competitive was it? I'ved applied for the CDT in Fluid Dynamics which has also just begun too
It was very competitive, for example, about 5 from my course applied, but I was the only one who got an offer. Even though they're all first class students! They didn't pick according to results. that came after the interview, and whether or not they gave a condition.

But basically, if you get an interview, really work on how to be yourself. Enjoy the moment and give it all you got. Impress them with your projects and what you've achieved but at the same time be as down to earth as you can be. I can guarantee you that you will get a place, if you do this in the interview, cos not only do you meet the requirements, but you've also got experience.

So did they all get interviews then? What did you demonstrate that gave you the offer? I'm hoping my personality really does shine through though :eek:

Mhmm we all got interviewed. On the day, we were all after each other. And I really don't know! I thought I wouldn't get a chance especially if they were considering the rest of my course mates. But after the interview, my course director kept telling me how the panel were impressed with me, and that I did well. Literally, I was like :lolwut: and that he must've mistaken me with someone else..

I know you will. Best wishes all the way!!

And yeah, all three years.. but that doesnt necessarily have to play a role in whether you get an offer or not.

guys im still hungover what do i do

i fell outside the club and faceplanted and hit my head off the pavement. i now have a cut on my forehead. classy.

i feel like death. still.

why.

also some guy from my school has been talking to me and a few guys are sort of hinting they maybe like me a bit and im not ready for this but it makes me feel better about assface, but also worse because im so scared guys are gonna do the same thing.

i need to find a mark darcy (watched bridget jones earlier and i love him so much, he's a dote).

oh and i didnt see assface last night so my night wasn't ruined, and i got to pull a fairly nice looking lad with muscle. then ran away because his stubble was hurting my face after 3 songs worth of kissing...


im gonna go sleep now. bye bye.

ps: hope your new year'sssss were fabulous. work starts tomorrow. no more alcohol, geeky times. neeeh.

Ooh thank you, that's so exciting! Is the idea that you get entry first and then apply for jobs, or is it like the Australia system where you need to be sponsored?

Not sure if I would be high ranking either. I have a few years' work experience, but in bars, shops and office jobs, not graduate ones

Maybe look through all of your notes to make sure you can pick everything up again next week?
You're so lucky!

I think this is solely for applying for permanent residency. You can have a job offer, but don't need to (although it'd be beneficial if you did, because you'd get points for that) and then if you rank high enough you get invited to apply for permanent residency.. It's all on that page!
I'm wondering if everyone needs to prove their language skills..

Go and have fun. You're obviously a well respected asset.

--------------
I am going to try and muster effort for subtle editing of lit review. I need to email it to my supervisor by Tuesday and haven't really worked on it.

I also have to design a questionnaire. I am going to try and treat my dissertation as a full time job any day I'm not working :cool: we'll see how that goes.

Exams in a week and a half - and I have done no studying for them whatsoever :/ Lost all motivation - you'd think in final year I'd get my arse into gear and get my degree but no I just cannot be bothered anymore!

I don't even know what to do :/ Don't get me wrong I want to pass and get a 2:1 but the pressure of failing and disappointing my parents is weighing me down to the point that I know I'm not going to pass these exams and loosing all motivation to study

Keep at at a week and half is still quite a bit. Look at past papers. Start tonight rather than putting it off and procrastinating/worrying until tomorrow
