    For 2014 entry they interviewed around 350 people I think, not sure about 2015 entry.

    Got the interview information booklet email today. It says I need all my GCSE exam certificates though

    I've got them all apart from 2. Because I took them early and moved house since, I cannot find them. (I have the statements of results just not the certificates)
    Apart from buying replacements from the exam boards, is there any other option?

    Does Plymouth accept anything else as an alternative to official exam certificates?

    *stupid question * but what are people saying in confirmation emails? are you literally just quoting the time/ date and what are you putting as subject line?

    just so paranoid about mine getting lost somewhere 😬
    I just put 'Interview Attendance Confirmation' in the subject line of mine and just said that I was confirming attendance of my interview at [quote date/time].

    Someone will email you back once you've sent it, so you should be okay

    I also have a statement of result and not the certificate so I will call up tomorrow if I get a chance during the day.

    Yep, you get the automated reply immediately after and then an actual person will email you a bit later on And I think you're fine, the invitation said you had a week to do it I think?

    I'm just quite surprised some interviews are held so late in the day, such as 4pm....

    Yeah same, I suppose they've got to cram everyone into the 3 days they've designated for it though. And 4pm's always better than 9am in my book
