    Did CSSD audition, got to the 'afternoon/recall' stage ..... I'll talk about in my blog later, afternoon session was a lot better than last years, that's for sure.


    New blog on the audition is here - http://zayneschool.blogspot.com/2011...-dramaaaa.html .

    Ahhh nice one, what offer did you get? Also, how was the essay thing?

    CSSD was alrightey, really informal and relaxing. It's just group work in the mornings with no right or wrong answers, just ideasss. The photos and items aren't overlly important, as to what they are i mean. And then the afternoon there are the interviews, where you all sit in a room, and they go on around the edge with the relevant tutor. Interviews seemed to last about 20 minutes or so, not too bad really.

    Good luck to you tooooo! x
    It was for 240 UCAS points...I'm living in Hong Kong though, even though i'm scottish and get home status....so it was over skype. They didn't ask me to prepare an essay or even a portfolio....he gave me the offer at the interview...it was quite strange. Made them seem quite unprofessional compared to all the other work i've done for my choices, but anyway. Good luck with yours, i'm sure it'll be awesome, the guy was really nice again, kinda like what you thought of CSSD.

    Oh righteyyy, FAIR ENOUGH!! Had my interview yesterday, and they did the same offer-wise. For the four people there, they did it for 3 of us - we didn't see the first girl after hers. But I'm waiting til it comes through on UCAS for me to go "woo got an offer", haha!

    about that... yeah, RADA is actually operating on a massive deficit right now, so I'd be careful to assume they can continue this "massive budget" speculation
    Ahhh poop, well, RADA still looks awesome, aaaand i have my CSSD interview next week! Eeek! Not sure what to do for the "bring an object that reminds you of a story, remembered or imagined" bit... what have other people done? (just to help me choose a suitable object?) x

    Heyaa
    I took a sound clip of a song I found particularly moving... Other objects ranged from bluetack to masks... Tbh its not overly important what the object is as long as you can argue and explain your choice

    Btw.. has anyone else had loads of interviews come at once? Im supposed to have 4 this month (and i only got 2 of my interview letters yesterday) and 2 the first week of feb... Im struggling with work and money and the college are being a bit funny about me missing all this time off... I really want to ask to have some of the interviews postponed for a bit but i dont think this counts as "exceptional circumstances" =(
    Anyone else having the same problem? Is it worth ringing up the drama schools or will it reflect on you negatively??

    I have 2 this month but my 6th form seem ok with that... On one hand, your commitment to the interview may look good to them, but on the other, they may respect you wanting to concentrate on your studies, as it shows a drive for wanting to do well in life 'tis your choice, my friiieeend ^.^ xxx

    Just tell your college "The reason I am attending these interviews because they are for the courses I want to do in my future and I am attending college to facilitate that future." I don't think it counts as exceptional circumstances and it'll be a lot off your chest once you've done them. In the end, even if your college gets grumpy, they are hardly going to throw you out or anything, so I wouldn't worry.

    that sounds like a good idea and youve thought it through well.. i wouldnt worry about the story part until you get there because it all depends on what other people in your group have brought anyway
    and ive applied to:
    Central - interview
    GSA - interview
    LAMDA - interview to be rescheduled
    RADA - still waiting
    Mountview - possibly rearranging interview
    Rose Bruford - possibly rearranging interview
    Bristol - possibly rearranging interview

    Where are you applying?? xx

    Some of the schools who interview will pay for some of it if you live a certain distance away. Southampton gave me like £40... it isn't a huge amount, especially as I live in Cumbria which is ages away, but it helped.
