    i actually quite enjoyed the selection day, first you have a presentation, then they split you up into groups and one group goes to interview and the other goes to exam. i cant really tell you much about the exam i cant really remember but the interview is very relaxed and you go in groups for the interview, they ask you what you did on work experience and you do activities, much nicer than the one to one interviews. they also ask you about a time in which you had to care for someone. although the group interviews may differ so i cant garantee they will ask the same questions

    what date is the interview?

    well i applied for:

    southbank
    christ church
    hertfordshire
    city
    portsmouth

    i did get an interview for 4 out of 5 of the uni so that was good but i suppose with all the people going in for it people must have had higher qualifications then i have.

    yes i supose you are in a similar position, its not to be taken personally though, if you think about it with it being paid for, people are going to be more likely to go in for it.

    it was my first time applying for radiography, so did portsmouth say you were not suitably for radiography but put you in for psychology, because im waiting for portsmouth to get back to me on alternative courses they can offer.

    i hope i get a place in extra to, i have decided to go down the biomedical science route, i am currently trying to find out from 7 unis whether my qualifictation are suitable.


    is this your first time applying as well ?

    i guess uni fees have risen so people are more likely to go for the courses that are funded even if they think its not the right path for them. yea it is my first time applying for radiography.

    portsmouth jus sent me an email saying we r sorry that we cant offer you place on ur chosen course however we have decided to offer you place on psychology looking from your current qualifications.

    thats good atleast you know what you r doin apart from radiography, i havenot decided yet what else to do if i dont get in to radiography course this year.

    do you mind if i ask you what qualifications you have??

    yeah, well it took a while to decide which route i wanted to go, the courses i am doing currently are:

    applied science subsisidory diploma

    health and social diploma

    if i get the grades i am expected to i wil get abou 360 ucas points, but as i said a lot of people are doing teh sciences at a level, my maths let me down on that. only got a C or i would have done biology i think.

    what qualifications do you have.?

    that sounds good, i think access to healthcare is something i would have liked to have done, especially if it includes psychology, but unfortunatly my colllege does not do it, strange that your colleges dont do physics, i would have thought it would be a main subject, are you in college, or are you doing an open college.

    Hi everyone! I'm really freaking out about results day! I have firmed hertfordshire and insured london south bank and i know getting just one offer is amazing since two of my friends who also applied for diagnostic radiography got no offers i was just wondering if anyone knew how much leeway hertfordshire might give on their entry requirements? I will definitely get 260-28 ucas points but they are asking for 300 :/ i spoke to a student who got accepted for sept 2012 and she got in with 280 points through clearing without any interviews so maybe there is hope? I really wanna get into hertfordshire i love it so much! If anyone else has firmed hertfordshire what grades are you predicted? I want to know if i'm aiming too high compared to other candidates. Please reply guys, thanks in advance and hope to see you guys in hertfordshire in september!xxx
