    Now i know shipley's upnorth, but you're flying?! woaaah :P
    It does seem a bit extreme I know! but us northerners like to travel in style

    It's either 45 minutes on a plane or 7 hours on a coach (as nobody is willing to drive me all that way!) I think I'd be shattered by the time I got there if I went by coach, plus another 7 hours back... uurgh. If I fly, I can be in southampton by lunchtime, chill for a bit, have a coffee etc go for my interview, then have a few pints in the airport bar before heading home.
    £95 return flights = bargain in my opinion

    Haha, Thank you



    Indeed I am

    And yes, course I'll let you know. They actually rang me yesterday, about 4ish, and said I would get the e-mail in a couple of hours, but I still haven't got it. :confused:
    And I'm from up north too, and I need to book a train or whatever mode of transport I'm going to use to get to the other side of the country lol
    They rang me yesterday as well about 5ish, while i was out walking the dog. I was more giddy than the dog after she told me!!

    A fellow northerner! Where aboots upnorth?

    No idea! I thought they'd already start dishing loads out by now, think that's how it went last year? Looking at the stalking thread, all uni's seem to be taking their time this time round!

    The "one retake" rule is just for resitting a whole a level year, not just individual exams just to be le clear. You can retake more but they will want to know about extenuating circumstances and they will need to be good! xD
    Yep.

    Depends entirely on the day, minimum i've seen is 3 BM6 most is about 8. They also run interviews for overseas and graduate students on the same day so there are quite a few candidates about on each date.

    try finding a megabus ticket....
    Might also be worth noting that anyone applying for the BM6 can reclaim up to £100 in travel expenses from the university if they get an interview. The forms should be given out by the students helping out at the time

    That's weird... how many d'you reckon they'll interview out of the 800 (ish) applicants?
