    Woohoo!!! My UCAS application has been sent. Now comes the stress of checking Track every minute of the day whilst I wait for them to decide whether or not they want to send me an offer
    I sent my application off just over a week ago too... I visit track about 16 times a day haha. Even though I know they don't really start to make any changes for another month or so yet. It's really stressful isn't it! Fingers crossed for us all! x

    My head keeps telling me to stop checking track because I know I'm not going to hear anything for ages, but I cant seem to stop myself hahaha.

    i sent my application yesterday, sooo nervous already! i am also in the same boat as some people on here (mature student but also has a degree at 2.2) so i hope it doesn't affect my application! i've applied to DMU, man met, uni of manchester, reading and sheffield. Just wondering does anyone know if universities still interview even if you have all your A level results?

    Thank you! That's really reassuring, how are you finding the course so far?
    Some modules are intrinsically harder than others (e.g. anatomy and phonetics), but I think a lot of it is just getting back into the swing of things and being realistic about how much secondary reading I can do. For instance, I have my first clinical observation tomorrow (it is marked as part of a portfolio due in January), but I have been more interested in reading stuff for an essay due next month which does not contribute towards my marks (i.e. formative practice essay)!

    I never had an interview last time because I only have a c at English gcse and not a b which was what they wanted. But the requirements have changed this year to a C. so I don't understand why they have rejected me! x

    sorry to hear that ! sometimes universities do weird decisions unexplainable ! on the other hand try to be optimistic you have more than what a lot of universities asked for maybe it is not meant to be just wait you dont know what is around the corner.

    All I can really recommend is that you elaborate on everything in all your assignments and revise well for any exam Try to hand things in on time so you don't get bogged down. good luck xx

    thank you, I made a couple of changes but kept it similar as it was a good personal statement. Is that the wrong thing to do, should I have changed it completely? x

    I'm not sure tbh, perhaps they had looked at your PS the first time round and rejected you on that basis (along with the C grade)?

    but now they only want a C and not a B so I've got all the entry requirements they want... goes to show how competitive the course is I suppose xx

    Hi guys!
    I thought I'd stop spying on the chat and actually join in
    I'm studying Biology, English Language, Psychology, History and studied Mandarin Chinese for 6 years
    I've sent off my UCAS form and am so nervous already...especially as other courses are giving offers already! Need to learn to be patient
    My top choice would be Newcastle!
    Just thought I'd say Hi and good luck to everyone xx
