    Have interviews at edge hill and Teesside the same week really wanna go to Hallam though? What were your conditions to your offer?
    Thankfully I did my A Levels a while ago so I already had the grades needed when I applied.. so the offer was unconditional 😊

    Well the rejections are piling up, makes it worse when 2 out of the three were your top 2 choices and the rest were pretty much just fillers :/

    Has anyone else been accepted for Oxford Brooke's?
    Also i had my interview For St Georges on the 9th Jan and haven't heard back, has anyone else?
    I applied back in October and still haven't heard back from Worcester so getting nervous :/
    I've got an offer for Brookes too. I also haven't heard back from SGUL, but I don't think anyone from the 9th Jan has yet - at least nobody I kept in touch with has!

    Brookes was a rejection after interview, Bournemouth didn't even offer an interview, Surrey did but I couldn't make the date so it was withdrawn

    Horrendous. The day in itself is fun, but they watch and analyse you so much. And you have to be 100% on point with your interview answers. i didn't answer a couple of questions 100% how they wanted me too (it was reflected in my feedback) so just got put on the reserve list.
    Practically the same happened to me, they also said I didn't communicate enough or show enough leadership skills (which is rather difficult when someone in your group basically doesn't stop talking to the extent it's not even worth trying to be heard over them)

    Yeah we had a girl like that in our group, I just started talking over her til she shut up but in the cpr task it was difficult to take charge over her although I did try which was reflected in my feedback

    I wonder how many people are on the same day? Surely the smaller the groups the better because that's less people they need to get rid of

    Well from the email I'm guessing there's at least 5-7 people on the same day to make a group! Yeah I feel with smaller groups there's more chance of equal discussion and not everyone fighting over each other to speak!

    Just realised I posted on the wrong thread, but have an interview at Bradford tomorrow and not sure what to wear! Normally for an interview I would wear a suit, but it has a practical element, and assuming it might be something like CPR, then not keen on doing that suited and booted.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Suit... all interviews I've been to 90% of guys have worn suits and they include practical elements. Take your jacket off if they need you to do cpr, roll your sleeves up, get stuck in lol

    Hey,

    I was just after peoples advice. I've applied to study Paramedic Science/Practice at Surrey, Sheffield Hallam, Anglia Ruskin and Teesside University to start September 2017. I've been fortunate to receive offers from Anglia Ruskin and Surrey but I'm still awaiting decisions from Teesside and Sheffield Hallam.

    Intially, my firm choice(s) are between Teeside and Sheffield. However at Surrey, your tuition fees are funded through the NHS as well as receiving a bursary on top of that.

    I was therefore wondering given the free tuition at Surrey, should that be the deciding factor for my firm choice? Or have tuition fees not been a major inconvenience for graduate paramedics?

    Thanks
    Johnny
