    Feel free to post anything about woodhouse like interviews, the open day, offers etc..
    However, I have one tiny problem I'd like to address at the moment. I applied for Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Philosophy and majority of my predicted grades were B's at the time of the application process - (all B's to be exact) and I still haven't heard back from woodhouse about an interview/waiting list offer.

    I'd really like to go to woodhouse just because I feel as if I would be most comfortable studying in such a socially developed environment as well as it being academically successful. My sixth form doesn't offer philosophy and the physics teachers aren't great so I've decided that maybe my sixth form isn't for me.

    About 90% of my friends have already done their interview or received their future interview dates and I have nothing. I understand woodhouse is extremely over-subscribed and that there are more interview dates to be handed out but I'm still quite anxious as I feel like I might not even get one.

    Here are my questions..

    1. If I do get an interview date .. am I less likely to be considered for a conditional offer as my predicted grades aren't as high as others and that I have also opted for competitive courses?

    2. What are my chances of going in on the enrolment day and showing my grades and getting a secure offer? - My predicted grades at the moment are 3A*, 7A'S and 1B
    THANKS

    Hi you guys. Dont worry about the whole interview thing. Woodhouse spread them over lots of dates and with those predicted grades I'm pretty sure that you will get an offer. If you are really worried at a later stage, I would contact them via email or phone. Trust me, those predicted grades are a lot higher than most. My interview is on the 22nd and my predicted grades aren't as good as yours. Good luck
