    Hello All, I got reserve for Clinical Engineering. Does anyone know if there is any way to know your number on the waiting list? Wish I knew if there is some one from last year who was offered from reserve. I know it would totally be dependent on people having offers. But still, just trying to figure out if I should still have hope.

    I'm on reserve list for medical physics..too bad but there is still hope! A question for the other applicants of med phys, to people who applied last year and maybe to someone who is working for NHS: what did/would you do to follow the path of medical physics and maybe wait for the STP next year? Where can you get some experience in this field or in a related one? Anyway congratulations to everyone who got an offer!!! Best of luck for who is still waiting!

    Hey super well done on the offer☺☺ i was just wondering, as you didnt get in first time what would you recommend to someome who wants to apply agai next year? What sort of experience did you get? I applied to neurophysiology not genomics but general advice would be great!
    Thank you In terms of experience I'm still at the same job I was last time I applied - what I did between last year and this one was -
    - organised visits myself to departments - this let me see a lot more than you see on just an open day and also got me some useful contacts
    - went all-out revising for the interview - took 2 weeks annual leave to prep
    - focused a lot on the 'tell me about a time you did this' type q's on my prep. Last year I revised the specialism stuff a lot but overlooked how much time I should invest in thinking of examples that show me in a good light beforehand
    - at interview they don't know your form/work experience - so in my answers I made sure to mention "When I organised my own visit to the department..." or "During my current job as lab manager..." so they knew my experience

    Good luck if you re-apply next year, it can be done!! I did terribly the first year at interview and never dreamed I would make it this year.

    By visits to department's do you mean just work experience in labs or actually working there? If just work experience how did you orgainse it?
    Also are there any example 'tell me about a time you did this' questions?
    Thank you for all your advice ☺ really useful ill keep it in mind for next time. And thank you i really hope so haha.

    Hey, same here I got reserve for clinical engineering too. I heard that last year for clinical engineering just 1 person from the reserve list got moved up to an actual offer. I hope they release the rank list soon!

    Do you reckon they will actually give us the rank then? I kind of thought they would just give us our score and we'd be left to wonder where abouts that ranked?!!

    EDIT: Ah just reread the email, it does look like they'll be releasing rank, that'll be good, save any unnecessary hoping.

    Yes! I did meet you. I was the one from Oxford.

    Well done! Yeah, i had to confirm a load stuff to opt out. But i had my highest preference, so i dont think it would have made a difference.
    Hey, how did you opt out of upgrades? I am trying to but can't see how to do it! I emailed and they just said they weren't sure but it was "probably through Oriel"...

    Well done on your offer!

    Did anyone else who got interview unsuccessful have their email worded as "We are writing to confirm that you were unsuccessful at interview" or was this some special wording I got?
    Did they think that I must have known that I was unsuccessful already due to horrible performance?
    (I actually didn't think that it had gone that badly!)

    Well done to those with offers. I hope you have a great time learning lots of new things and meeting new people.

    Is anyone else taking a position in Birmingham for genomics? If I can remember rightly, there were 4 positions there.

    Also, what is the difference between opting for upgrades and putting an offer on hold? Is hold more for people who have offers in different specialisms?
    If you accept then you agree to go to that place, but opting in for upgrades means if a space higher in your list of choices becomes free you'll automatically accept that.
    If you put it on hold, you haven't accepted the place, but are waiting to see if you get offered something else.

    Ahh fantastic! That was pretty high on my list actually! You must be thrilled!
    I ranked all of the Med Phys locations so im hoping something will come back to me. I wonder if everyone took the same approach as me- rank them all, or were they more selective? All i can really do is wait and see!
    Sorry was revising all afternoon! Yep, pretty thrilled as it's what I've wanted to do for years now - admittedly that may have helped as I have lots of relevant experience now

    I ranked all the locations too, as I didn't see any point in not and I wouldn't have said no to any location. I honestly have no idea what most people do though - I know a lot of my friends are way fussier about the location than the job, whereas I'm the opposite. Best of luck

    I've been offered a place doing Neurophysiology at Portsmouth!
    Really happy, but Portsmouth was my 5th choice, and I'd like to take one of my higher choices if it's by any chance offered - so should I choose 'hold'? is that the different between hold and accept?
    Sorry If I'm being dim!

    Congratulations! If you would accept regardless of it being Portsmouth, pick Accept, then Opt In to upgrades. If you would only accept if you get another location, then pick Hold and Opt In to upgrades.
