    From what I have heard, I think they send them out in batches before each interview date, so that everyone has the same amount of notice and time to prepare. So far I have only heard of people getting an interview invite for the beginning of January, so I presume this is what they are doing...
    Thanks! Was getting worried as I haven't heard yet!

    Any idea how long it takes for Surrey to get back if you have asked for your interview date to be changed?

    Everything was sorted for me on the day I emailed them asking to change.

    I came home today hoping, but nothing in the post... So i am trying to work out what part of my application they don't like... Applied twice now and nothing from notts either year following the wex and sat. But, there are fewer posts by those with interviews so i will keep hoping for another day or two. But I do think that I am not going to get a chance at my favourite choice :-(
    Nottingham dont give feedback so there is no way of knowing how to improve if you dont get an interview (fortunately didnt need to reapply)
    Who can possibly know how the SJT went? As it says its subjective
    Fortunately the schools are completely different in their selection criteria so other schools may like your application more

    Hey, I was there too. I felt I got off to a good start but a couple of the stations really threw me and now I have a lot of doubts

    Also, what is that little square thing that was in our goodie bags?! I went back to college after my interview (physics yaaaay) and my friends thought it was some sort of fancy sticker? I have no clue :lol:
    Somebody at my interview said that it was a screen wiper for phones? I'm just keeping mine in its packet as a memento

    I'm using it as a bookmark A screen wiper would be wasted on me *looks anxiously at the giant cracks down my phone's screen*. Besides, isn't that what sleeves are for? :lol:

    Anybody know if the whole touring campus thing at RVC interview is compulsory? I have deadlines and I've seen it enough times before!
    Not sure if they are just trying to be nice and helpful or if its a required part of the interview process

    The order of the day is:

    Welcome speech
    MMI, tour or group task
    MMI, tour or group task
    Student Union speech
    MMI, tour or group task

    There are three main groups, and each one does the activities in a different order. I guess if you're in the group that does the tour last (AA I think) they'll let you leave early if you have to, otherwise it might be a bit tricky. It's not a part of the interview process (as far as I know! :lol: Maybe they were secretly talking notes on how we walked + whether we held doors open for other people, but I doubt it ), but the way the day is structured would make it hard to skip.

    Cheers thats really helpful, I didn't realise it was so integrated into the whole process. Guess I will just be up late Thursday night finishing my riveting essay!

    Extra yay, a speech from the student union.

    Sorry to be boring but details of the test and process beyond what was given in the invitation are not public and those who have already attended have been reminded of their obligations to keep the process confidential.

    I haven't heard from Nottingham or Surrey now, but have got an interview for RVC and Bristol. Heard that Surrey and Nottingham only do one round of interviews and they've both gone out, surely this means that I've got 2 rejections?
    No, it doesn't! For one thing, with Notts, there's been far less people sending out happy messages saying they've had interviews on here (and on the Facebook group) than there were last year, suggesting that they're either interviewing less or that not all of the invitations have arrived yet - last year someone didn't recieve theirs until Christmas eve despite it being sent out around this time. Also, even if you didn't make it into this batch, there's always a chance that you'll be on the waitlist and will be called in Jan/Feb time. Don't worry, and keep hoping!

    Nottingham does it weirdly - I looked over their whole admissions statement policy last night and they don't assess on either personal statement or predicted grades: initally, it's just down to the SJT and the work experience questionnaires which we did, which is a remarkably strange way to do it. None of the other schools do it in this way.
