    Hi, I've applied for diagnostic radiography. So far I've had three interviews and two offers, just waiting for my final choice to get in touch now for an interview hopefully.
    I've heard of a few people who have already been rejected from Bradford though - so no news is usually good news!

    Why did portsmouth not go well? When was your interview there?

    Good luck! I'm sure they'll go great. Where is your first choice btw?

    Jan13 It was my first interview. I got so nervous, my answers were really short and I was the last one they've interviewed so I also got tired of waiting for hours. But maybe it's just wasn't for me.

    My first choice is Portsmouth but I also like Hertfordshire so if my interview at herts go well I'll defo go there.

    Yesss hopefully! Thank youuu

    I was lucky because I have my interview there in November and was the first one in! I'm sure it didn't go as bad as you thought it did. Hope you get an offer from there

    That is to become a radiologist.
    Radiographers are completely different! You can go directly from sixth form into a radiography degree (they are very competitive though)!

    Did you ask for feedback from Leeds as to why you were unsuccessful?
    I went to Sheffield's selection day on Thursday and absolutely loved the university. The facilities there are head and shoulders above the rest that I've seen!
    I hope you are successful and get your interviews

    Not yet I have to write a letter to ask and haven't got around to it yet. I liked Bradford wasn't overly keen on Sheffield but liked it much more than leeds.

    Thank you I have everything crossed!

    I had a rejection from Leeds a week or so ago without an interview. You can phone their undergraduates office and get an instant reply rather than having to send a letter, it's what I did

    I got interviews at all the above plus Teesside and Cumbria with Applied Science Alevel and a BTEC. I have offers from Leeds, Bradford and Cumbria, withdrew from Salford before interview and offered alternative courses at Teesside, so what you are studying is not a problem honest x

    How are you getting on? Isn't it funny how different universities appeal? I didn't even apply to Sheffield as I hated it on the open day. Their facilities strangely enough were not a patch on Bradford whose were the best out of the six universities I visted, yet I picked Leeds as number one because a former student from Cumbria said it is very rare that students use the practice facilities anyway, they learn more on placement!

    I have gone for Leeds first and Bradford second.

    Hmm, but you do actually have an A level, Ive not been able to make much sense of what you've said, but either way congratulations. When i was looking at the statistics only 13% of applicants get a place for radiography at salford 20% at bradford and 22% at leeds. What they often do is take people rejected from Medicine on through clearing. So thats my last hope if not ill be most likely studying Nutrition at Manchester Metropolitan University. I think my name should be feeling depressed at this rate lol. x
