    It was in clearing last year. And if people miss grades or make other choices I guess it will be again. If you go through the threads you will see loads of stuff on interviews, what the experience was like for many, areas around which questions were asked, best ways to answer and a lot of very helpful tips.

    Both were in clearing. They review each application separately and they decide whether to make an offer for the foundation or the BSc.

    I sent my application off about 15th Decemberish and they still haven't got back to me apart from the say they've acknowledged my application... Should they have rejected or offered me an interview by now? :s
    There is still time for interview appointments. I hear that they have had a lot more applications this year and are still going through them.

    so my high school w/e in a pharmacy would be enough? the email said for progression from the course onto medicine they don't take a-levels into account, but for progression on to pharm/optom 3A-levels at CCC are needed!

    ahh so in theory if I got on the Bsc, I could go onto the foundation if I wanted then seeing as its in clearing, because it would be unfair if it was in clearing and I'm being made to do something I dont want to right?

    if you get onto the Bsc, why would you want to go on to the foundation - when somebody who cant get on to the Bsc could do with that place?

    I'd happily swap! As long as they have BBB, academically they should be fine for the Bsc

    are you saying you've got a place on the BSc, and even if you get on to it, you'd like to move on to the foundation??

    I got a letter before the christmas holidays to say I have an interview, and I'd hear later on about a date, but I haven't heard yet. Did you get a letter or email? or did you have to email/phone to clarify when you want to do it as the letter said something about feb for those with jan exams and jan for those without.

    I have an exam that day, so probably wont get/attend on the 23rd
    I got a letter with a date on it initially. Have you tried to email them and ask them as it may of been a mis print good luckkk!!!

    You can apply through clearing if you meet the qualifications and if there are spaces all dependent on the course you are interested in. Clin sci has been very popular this year, I gather. Last year clin sci, both foundation and three year, had spaces in clearing. This year I gather they have had so many applications, my guess, and remember its just my humble guess, things may be different (less spaces or no spaces!). But no worries just wait and see. And stay positive! Put together a number of options that will get you where you want to go, re-university study. One is bound to work out. Best of luck!
