    Hi Guys

    I applied for ACCS Acute medicine/CMT and ACCS/Core anaesthetics training this year during my F2 year. I applied for London deanery for both but was unsuccessful in attaining a post. After talking to my friends who applied to the less competitive deaneries, they had the same scores as me and got their top 10 choice for jobs.

    For both deaneries I have been deemed appointable but didn't rank high enough for jobs in London but I'm not too far out ranking wise. I've been told now that I have to wait to see if anyone rejects jobs and if that doesn't happen then I get pooled for national clearing.

    Has anyone else been in this position in the past? And received an offer?

    Any advice or personal experiences would be helpful.

    I was in the same position first time I applied for anaesthetics (Severn deanery - appointable but not ranked high enough, would have been offered a job if I'd put a different deanery first etc). I went through clearing and was offered a job in Wales around May time. I'd already accepted a cmt round 2 job though so couldn't take up the anaesthetics offer and eventually got in when I reapplied through round 3 18 months later. I was ranked ~115/160 for national clearing and there were ~40 jobs so it took a while for people to reject the job that I eventually was offered

    Ok that gives me some hope thank you. I got a CMT london offer but rejected it as it wasn't a job that I wanted. I have managed to find a few 6 month ITU clinical fellow jobs which I am awaiting interviews.

    If I don't get into clearing for anaesthetics then I will do my clinical fellow job for 6 months and reapply for Feb 2017.

    My score was 142/200 is that generally high enough to get in via clearing. I appreciate that it depends on the group of people applying.

    Thanks

    I would have thought that score would be enough but as you say it's difficult to know!

    I enjoyed applying through February entry so much more! (6 interviewed for 5 jobs... Ranked first so got my first choice!)

    May I ask which deanery did you apply to for Feb? I was thinking about either West Midlands/ Kent and Sussex/ Wessex.
