    I'm predicted ABB but it seems to me that if you want to get in you have to have better grades than that even though it only requires BBB. Seems highly unfair seeing as my personal statement even included 4 Clinical shadowing placements with the professor of paediatric anesthetists at the royal London hospital and caring for patients in the PICU (paediatric intensive care unit) seems slightly unfair because i think its quite likely that most people wont have that sort of work experience. Im also shadowing an adult nursing on the intensive care ward and the neonatal care center at the royal London hospital. Plus i have two jobs, and work at 3 nursery's ...-_-

    You've done loads!! Have you rung the university? Which one was it? If you ring them they can give feedback on why you didn't get an interview, because from that I can't fathom any possible reason! But keep your chin up because it was just the one university and there are still 4 others

    Hey, sorry to hear that! What university was that for? Different universities look for different things, so maybe you'll have better luck somewhere else! Also, in terms of the academic entry requirements that you mentioned above, it shouldn't make a difference whether one candidate has BBB (if those are the min. entry requirements) vs. someone with A*AA. Once you've met the entry requirements you're through to the next round, so to speak. They're a hurdle to cross and that's that. So as long as you have the asked for requirements I wouldn't worry. (That's my understanding, anyway).

    Really?! That's appalling! Which university was it? I hope it's not one I have to deal with :/ you've worked in 3 nurseries and done a truck load of work experience - how can you not know?! Each university has their own criteria though, and maybe they just had really weird criteria? I'm so sorry about that! It must be horrible! X
