    Thanks, well done! Do you mind me asking what experience you have etc.?
    I ranked 11th overall, need to do better next year

    I have an undergrad in Biomedical Science and an msc in Molecular Medicine. Did some voluteering at the local hospital and a placement in an immunology lab for a few months - a year. Worked as a lab techician at schools for a few years. Now I work at a pharmaceutical company focusing on immunoassays and clinical chemistry.

    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?
    Could i ask what your shortlisting and interview scores were like and what ranking you were in just to compare it to my score please 😊

    Shortlist 50/69, interview 42/50 and rank 16 for genomics
    Hi! Massive congrats on your genomics offer!!

    I've applied for genomics for the past two years and haven't even received an interview

    I was wondering if you could share your experiences so that maybe I could get an idea of where I can improve.

    I'm a graduate of BSc Biomedical Science (received a 1st) and have done a genetics research project during my degree. I will be undertaking a genetics MSc soon. Hopefully this will help me to finally get an interview lol

    My shortlist score was 45, interview score 40, rank 12 (out of 12 places). So they were the lowest you could get for an offer this year. I just about made it through but hey i'm happy with that! I think in helped that I did not rank any of the areas as unwanted. Hope this helps everyone
    This is for Audiology if anyone else is wondering

    Well done for getting an offer! I think the competition must've been tough this year, as I got a shortlist score of 52 and an interview score of 36 but was ranked 22nd and thus didn't get an offer!

    Those getting confused between why they got an interview this year but not last with similar shortlisting scores - the shortlisting last year was out of 69, this year it is out of 60. So you can't really compare shortlisting scores between the years.

    Looks like just 1 or 2 points at interview gives a massive difference in the ranks. So relieved given how close it all looks!

    It is also great about them removing the charge for interview feedback and giving it electronically - last year was all by post and took forever.

    I was an in service candidate for clinical immunology and thankfully made it through! I will be based in Hampshire. I am slightly curious to know how I scored on each thing (but I am not sure I really want to know!)
    I was in service too and thought the interview went terribly yet still managed to get through. Do they tell in service candidates their score? I kind of want to know....

    Did you put every location down as a preference or say 'no' to some? That could be the difference.

    That is odd! What rank did you get?
    I seem to remember reading on here back when everyone was doing the online tests that they use those results if people tied at interview (although i'm not sure and people aren't always right on here)
    It could also be the preference thing, I didn't say no to any of the areas
