    Hi, I sent my application off today. I hadn't mentioned it on here because I didn't want everyone to know about it (not a lot of people do I've realised) and make it ultra competitive!

    I called up to ask about the statement and they asked me to just use my UCAS one

    It's exactly the same as UCAS but I've included 1 paragraph about why I want to go to Aberdeen.

    I've applied for English, Social Sciences and History. I don't think I'll get in though because I think the places are reserved for sob stories which I, unfortunately don't have It's to widen participation for students who have family circumstances which mean they are unable to attend university. I hope I do get it though. Actually, I hope they let me in before hand.

    If I'm in I'll see you there

    i think thats rubbish about being saved for sob stories
    I dont have a sob story, ive just been working full time since I left school, and that was through choice
    I know many people who did the same, or dropped out of college
    I doubt that from the 200 people who get in their only going to take people with sob stories

    Hey, I spoke to a girl who went last year, she said at her interview they just asked her about herself and why she wanted to go - you know, like personal statement sort of stuff. I wouldn't stress about it. It's weird though, I got a letter from Aberdeen this morning offering me a place on the summer school without interview - it just asked me to reply with an answer as soon as possible. Did you accept your place then get an interview, or did they ask you for one after you sent back a reply? I'm just wondering if they made a mistake with me, thats all. I don't know if it's different for everyone or not, though. Sorry I couldn't be more help! And did anyone else get accepted without interview?
