    Awesome! At the moment, I'm hoping for either Brookes or Bournemouth (but the ambulance in the skills lab at Northampton looked awesome, i didn't manage to get to an open day, being from Cornwall it's hell of a trek!!
    Good luck with your interview
    Ahhh right okay. Northampton looked amazing on the open day, the labs were really cool and the man who did the talk at the beginning was really helpful, gave a good presentation, provided loads of information 👌🏻
    The students were also really great 😁 I'm so excited for the interview, though it's such a long wait haha

    One day I'd like to do some time on an Air Ambulance and perhaps in the future work in an Urgent Care setting e.g. my local Out of Hours GP service employs ECPs

    Hey everyone.

    I've have previously applied for Paramedic Science course and unfortunately didn't get a place. (I was interviewed at Brighton, Birmingham City and Anglia Ruskin).

    I have studied BTEC - Level 3 - Extended Diploma in Public Services and also Health and Social Care. I received D*D*D* in both courses. My one downfall is my Maths. I was 3 marks off a C (I know they still look at that a not a fail.)

    I currently volunteer with St John and I have been on a variety of placements with my health and social course.

    This will be my third year of applying for the BSc(Hons). I just don't know what I'm doing wrong? I do get extremely nervous at interview so maybe that is the issue.

    Any suggestions? ((:

    I'd say it maybe the interview, your obviously a strong enough candidate to get to the interview stage. With you interviewing before you know what to expect, and hopefully should ease your nerves a bit. Everyone's nervous so I wouldn't worry about that, did you ask for advice from them what to improve on for last time? They want to seem people keen and determined, which you obviously are

    Yeah, no matter how much I prepare I'm still really nervous and forget everything I've researched. So I look like a clown haha! I don't know whether to reapply to some of the same universities? I really want to go to UWE but last year I didn't even get an interview! Then my second choice was Brighton but the MMI went bad! (I was also about 10 minutes late to the interview, purely because I was travelling from North Wales to Brighton that morning as I couldn't afford a hotel.)

    Don't worry that's it's normal to forget or lose track, they expect us to be nervous! Especially if were so passionate about the vocation/uni, I would choose exactly where you could see yourself going, no matter how many times you've applied. It show's dedication. If you can come back despite last time and demonstrate your passion for the subject and career beyond you'll be fine Also take notes with you and ask for constructive criticisms where applicable

    You have loads of interview experience so hopefully that will help this time round and your general experience and qualifications are great so I don't see why they didn't offer you a place!

    Maybe more confidence? Easier said than done I know.. I'm awful when it comes to nerves when it's something I'm passionate about because I know I want it so bad haha.

    I had a missed call from a number in Birmingham the other day and got all paranoid, googled it and it was a recruitment company haha.

    If it was a uni then they'd have definitely left a voice mail or tried calling another time. Don't worry

    Whaaaaaat!!!! No way, sorry to hear that
    I'm worrying that SHU and Staffordshire don't want me because others seem to have heard back and I haven't! Suppose "no news is good news".... Though I think SHU have only recently started working through their applications so there's still hope!!!!

    I think maybe you were too good for UCLAN, and that's really why they couldn't take you on Don't let it dampen your spirits tho, still got to wait to hear back from other unis!

    In other news, I'm in an elated mood as I just got my results back for my cardiac and respiratory module and I got a distinction

    Thank youuu! Same with me for staffordshire But sheffield has a quite a few to sive though so don't worry

    Yeah i'll put it down to that Yeah hopefully the other four will be much better news.

    Ah well done! I wish there was a way to update your grades so uni's could see what you've attained so far!! I got a distinction on my Anatomy and Physiology unit 2 days after sending off my ucas, it's my first graded unit so the rest stand at a pass, hoping this wasn't a reason for my rejection.

    Yeah that'd be good to help get interviews. Even though it's not required, I may take a portfolio of the work I've done so far and the grades I've got to my Northampton interview so they can see the standard of work I've done so far. And also with all my certificates in cannulating, ECGs and like my AHLS and TILS certificates ☺️

    If it's your first graded units then I don't see why they wouldn't give you an interview with the rest being passes, the "ungraded" units are capped at passes anyway... I'd ring up and see why maybe?
