    Hi all, I duno how to apply individually so my apologies to anyone that has comment on my posts. Nerves are really setting in now I think at this stage we have all passed the interview, now its the wait to see if we got between 40&60 marks for a place, interview is 30 to pass. We all came away from interview with exact same feelings so fingers crossed we all get a place.

    Those with highest interview marks are offered a place first Jenny,then it will go down the list until places are gone....then the reserve list will made up of those who scored over 40,highest mark first if that makes sense?

    Important to remember also that while people may score well in INterview they may not get the required grades from their courses etc
    and also those who score will more than likely be offered a place in all their choices which takes up spaces but they will be turning down some offers....therefore freeing up spaces

    Yeah I understand that just would love tto be offered a place when we first hear in may rather than continuing to wait and hope if u know what I Mean. I feel pretty silly that I didn't apply to the three yr course also as a backup. Really hope I have scored high. Wonder what the highest scores r at moment

    Just wondering if the personal statement will count aswell as the interview when deciding places? I feel like i didnt speak enough in the interview about my own personal experiences and qualities.

    Hi Jenny, I just applied to magee, I'm hoping they go on your personal statement as well as I didn't get to mention any of my experience at the interview. Altho the questions were straight forward, I just ans them to the point an now going over them I can see where I could've brought in my experience, but at the same it would've felt like I was just throwing it in lol ah my head is over thinking everything lol x

    Although maybe they make an exception if there were marks around the same they may look at the personal statement to make a final decision x

    I know exactly what u mean I thought at that time the questions were really difficult to answer and threw me way off track however as u say thinking back on it there was opportunities to mention all I had Prepared. We really do just need to pray we have done better than we think. The amount of applicants is freaking me out compared to the amount of Places.
    I rang again today regarding finding out and itl b any time from 30th April to 7th May I have butterflies in my tummy just thinking about it!

    It's so competitive the course, but no matter what if it's what you want there is no point giving up until you get in. we have all came very far, as heaps of applicants get rejected at the very first few stages so they must see something in all of us,
