    Seeing people receiving interviews only makes me more anxious that my references are taking their time. At least if one of them had accepted I'd know the emails had definitely sent...

    Is it okay to have booked both skills test on the same day..? Only the closet centre to me is a 4.5hr drive and I want to get them done as soon as!
    That's fine. I'm registered for both as well, as I imagine are many other people.

    Well done to everyone getting interviews! Although not gonna lie, you've made me even more stressed about not having submitted yet lol. I actually WENT to see my referee today at uni and she was like 'Oh, don't worry, I'll do it today. Or maybe tomorrow. By the end of this week anyway.'.... I don't think this lady knows what she's doing to my nerves...

    Hi everyone- Just wanted to know with regards to the skills tests where have people been turned away from? Only I have mine tomorrow in Holborn and am worried I will get turned away. :-( Also I heard from Roehampton to say they've received my applications and interviews will be late Nov/ early Dec… so I guess I will hear from them soon. *fingers crossed*
    That sounds like a generic e-mail that perhaps hasn't been updated since last year.

    It's the 27th November tomorrow and there are only 30 days in November, so I can't imagine any interviews happening in November at all!

    I'm not saying this to brag but I applied yesterday and got an interview offer today so it depends on the Uni I think. Good luck.
    Congrats! What uni?

    when I asked for refs I stated that I'd appreciate it being done ASAP due to the limited number of places and how hard it was to get a place. Just keep on at them and don't feel bad about it... It's your chance to get in the course at the end of the day. Good luck

    I changed my uni referee for this exact reason, I'm so glad I did too!

    Not just you! I'm trying to fit all of this in around full-time work at the busiest time of our financial year, and I'm almost there...then I just need to badger my referees more... Hang in there and good luck!

    Ooh congratulations! How did you find them? Are they similar to the practice ones on the government website? I have my literacy one tomorrow which I'm not really worried about, it's just the mental arithmetic section that is stressing me out a bit!

    How were they? Were they similar to the online examples? Harder? Easier?

    Hi Cutebat I tried to quote you earlier but it didn't work- wondering what subject you applied for at Roehampton?
    Hoping I may hear from them soon as my application was sent Saturday What did they say about Skills Tests??
