    I didn't get any company interviews so not really, just take your time, get it done a few weeks before the deadline, ask your referee to start writing your reference, sign up with ICE and iStructE if you haven't already (Presuming you are a-level or similar).
    Don't you have to start uni to sign up to ICE? im finishing my A-levels right now!

    No, the website is misleading. You can join when doing A-Levels

    so, when they ask for:
    "Name of University/College
    or place of study e.g. Leeds:"
    do you write which college you are in now or do you put the uni you plan to attend?

    Hi I'm applying for the ICE QUEST Undergraduate scholarship 2014 just wondering if any of you guys who done in the previous years got any advice relating to the application forms etc. that would be really grateful thanks!
    Hey I'm also applying for the scheme this year. Which university have you applied to?
    When you downloaded the form, did you find that you couldn't fill in the DOB section? I've emailed them but have yet to get a reply... Have you started filling it all in yet? Some of the questions seem a bit daunting at the moment, will have to crack on with it though.

    I got an email back yesterday. It was an error but it's all fixed now, you just have to download the form again and fill it all in.
    I have an unconditional offer from Sheffield as I already have my results (advantages of being older...)
    Think I'm going to use a lot of the stuff that I wrote in my UCAS personal statement to help me with this application haha! I have no idea what to write for the greatest challenges facing the industry though, will have to do some research into it....lucky we started early eh?

    The College or 6 Form or Secondary School you are currently study at. Sorry about the delay in repling. Been on a week long surveying trip to wales so limited wi-fi and no signal

    Yes. When I open the document it does have the grey boxes. At first I couldn't work out what was wrong as I was unable to type anything but I had a message popping up telling me to enable macros and then it worked fine. What's your problem?

    Cool on picking Sheffield by the way!! why are you deciding on going there?

    I realised that because my word is really old it just wasn't letting me do anything so I've been doing on the college computer. But thanks for the help anyway!
    I just loved sheffield as soon as I got there and the department was really good compared to the other unis I looked at what about you?

    For the question i put design. My favourite thing so far was a design project (masterplan of revitalising tohuku). It is hard to know. Look v. deeply into your uni course.
    bath is known for there design. The first year is taught with architecture i beleive so you could discuss that maybe.

    Quick question, does anyone know which means of communication they use to contact you regarding if you have got an interview? Is it an email or a phone call? Only because I will be on holiday at the beginning of July, and I don't want to miss my place! (if I get it!!)

    Thanks
