    I got a offer there too I'm hoping to upgrade though but I only put Manchester South + Central, Sheffield and Reading in my preferences and don't really see people rejecting them haha
    No way I thought I'd never be able to find the second person!
    I'm pretty much exactly the same, I'm hoping for an upgrade, Sheffield is my top choice (as it's where I am at uni now) and south and central Manchester are my second and third. But yeah I agree, I doubt anyone will reject them.
    Have you accepted your offer for Wales?

    My email reads

    Appointable but on waiting list - potential reserve

    What does this mean? I'm on the reserve list? Or potentially on the reserve list?

    Hi all!

    After 3 years of applying I have been offered Genomics at Manchester! I cannot believe it!
    I imagine the reserves might hear more as the offers expire at about 12.20 so then they'll be able to move things around.

    I don't suppose anyone reading this is going to be the other trainee at Manchester? It would be nice to say hello before September!
    Best of luck to everyone else who is still to get an offer! x
    Congratulations Katie Sounds like you had a similar experience to me - first time I didn't get an interview, 2nd I got interviewed but was reserve, and 3rd time I have been offered my top choice! I will be doing Genomics at Sheffield - see you on the masters!

    For those wondering about the university for Genomics I emailed but they don't know yet. I know last year it was Nottingham but it's up for tender this year, if anyone finds out more info about the uni let us know

    I was wondering about the Uni too. I think Manchester are one of the uni's bidding for it this year.

    I'm a current Genetic Technologist at Sheffield and I can assure you everyone is lovely. The STP trainers are great too! You are in safe hands! Do you live in Sheffield?x

    Can I ask what job you're in? Is it NHS? And was your first time applying while you were still at university?

    I'm almost the equivalent of you a year ago. Last year I was reserve for an interview then got an interview with 16 hours before (guess someone must have been ill or something). & then was reserve after interview both last year and this year. Last year's interview went mostly really well but I wasnt at all prepared so a couple of questions tripped me up, and this year's interview I felt quite prepared but it didn't go well on the day.

    Well done on getting a place this time! Well deserved after going through this 3 times!

    I'm on the reserve list for clinical biochem

    Does anyone know when upgrades and new offers to reserves are offered? Can it be at anytime as soon as someone declines a position or do they amass the results of the first offers, then release a second batch of upgrade/reserver offers a couple of days later?

    thanks!

    Most streams had until today to either reject, hold or accept their offer, so I imagine there will be more offers going out in the next few days

    Just got an offer for Clinical Bioinformatics (Genomics)- Oxford
    Congrats on your offer! I've accepted for Genomics at Oxford, think there will be a few of us there- maybe enough for a house share?

    Congratulations everyone who got offers! I'm in-service for repro and accepted an offer today. I applied twice as direct and then in-service this year, its a long old journey but totally worth it if it's what you really want!
    Anyone else accepted for repro?

    I visited the Sheffield department a couple of times and yeah everyone seemed lovely - maybe I have met you already before! Was Manchester your first choice or were you hoping for Sheffield? I'm currently living in York.

    Just accepted Clinical Bioinformatics (Physical Sciences) in Sheffield , over a long night of thinking XD .So happy <3
    Hi! Congratulations for getting a place! I'm doing Clinical Bioinformatics (PS) too, I guess I'll see you during the masters training I chose Sheffield as my second choice, it seems very reasonable in terms of price of living and it is right next to the Peak district which is beautifull! I drived past Sheffield during the easter break and it seems a clean peaceful town, just the right size, but I was only there for a few hours....
    Why did you have to think about accepting Sheffield overnight? What was your first choice?

    I'm actually from Scotland so I'm pleased to be nearer home! As much as I love Sheffield, the drive is much shorter from Manchester! xo.
