    I am just finalising my personal statement and cleaning up my CV, hopefully sending it away next week.
    Are you at uni still or have you already completed your BSc? I am still studying for mine in Biomedical Science.

    Nice! I am from Finland. I am a bit concerned whether my grades are high enough, as we get grades on the scale of 1-5 (not 1-4 like in US) but hopefully it'll be fine! Do you have a backup plan, are you applying somewhere else too? Oh and will you express a college preference in your application?

    I am also applying to the MSc Immunology and Immunotherapy course at the University of Birmingham so hopefully I'll get into one of these! Fingers crossed!!
    I don't think I am going to express a college preference.

    I sent my application three weeks ago. Have you heard anything? How exciting! I wonder how soon they will contact us if we have been short listed for interviews.

    It says on the website interviews are normally given out within 6 weeks of the deadline. I haven't heard anything yet though.

    Yeah I know what you mean. Like how basic is 'basic'? I wonder if there is a previous thread from last year or the year before? They might have some questions on. I'll have to have a look.
