    Hi Hannah I think it went well although it is difficult to judge. It was over so quickly and because you dont get a 1-1 interview it is quite difficult to get your experience across. How did yours go? Have you replied to anywhere else? I havent - all my eggs in one basket! Dawn

    Hi, nope still nothing! Did you call up? I did a few weeks ago but was just told the end of March. Last year they started making offers the end of February onwards but they dont seem,to have done that this year. I believe the last interviews are Friday this week so surely next week offers will start to come out? I am losing the will to live !

    I was going to call but I wasn't sure if it was being pushy but all this uncertainty is really starting to get to me!
    I know one person that has been offered an unconditional place from Dundee on 3rd of March so they are starting to give out offers now.
    I was thinking of phoning on Friday if they have not got in touch then.

    Hi,

    I had my interview on the 7th Feb and still not heard back yet, and I cannot wait any longer. Thats interesting to know that someone has already received an unconditional. I am tempted to phone up too but I know that all they'll say is that we will hear by the end of March. Let me know if anyone gets an offer.

    Hi, just wondering what the group task is like?

    Are you allowed notes for the group discussion section? What kind of things were discussed in this? I'm assuming all people speak among one another discussing current issues and someone from the university supervised and overlooked it. Am I right in thinking this?

    All the best everyone x

    Hi, noone in my group had notes but they didnt specifically say you were not allowed them. From speaking to other people the questions vary depending on who are your interviewers. You all sit around the group and then the 2 interviewers take a turn in asking a question to the general group. In my group most people tried to say at least one thing. How you would develop the pupils was one question and a question regarding influence/ relationships with parents. Good luck!

    Well done, I am really happy for you. Hopefully I will be meeting you at Dundee in the course if I get in, I am a mature student too but need to get higher English so mine will be a conditional.

    I think I will phone today.
