    Hi does anyone know how Robinson College will be contacting applicants on the 12th? Couldn't find anything on their website

    If we've been pooled and called for a reinterview, and that college decides that they don't want us, is that the end of the road?

    I mean the idea is that doesn't happen, and I'm not panicking or fretting. I'm curious.

    Yes.

    It sometimes happens that a college puts a candidate into the pool and then fishes them back to make an offer. But afaik if you've been passed over to another college for interview then that's your remaining chance right there.

    I believe so, I think the logic is that if 2 colleges have refused us, the rest will probably do the same. Although perhaps your original college may have the option to take you back? I'm not quite sure.

    I'm just praying my reinterviewing goes well. I'm even more fussed about getting an offer now because I have to make the trip twice and have the stress that comes with it, twice. Which is a lot to then be told it's all for nothing. 😕 I hope it goes well for both of us!

    Complusory pooling is still in place, but it only applies to the relatively few that meet the 3 subject requirement. Applicants in Wales and N Ireland, for example, still have UMS for all subjects. English applicants still have it for Maths, Geography, modern languages, RS, and a few others..
    Thanks!

    Yes, because for another college to be able to pick you out of the pool and call you for re-interview, your original college has to have relinquished all claim to you.

    Do medics get re-interviewed in general? Or are they just usually fished without interview?

    In the absence of other info assume letter sent on the 11th, but no email on the 12th except to non-UK candidates.

    The decision to call for a re-interview is on a case-by-case basis, and is relatively uncommon for all courses.

    I didn't realise how long it'd take, figuring most of it would be sorted just waiting for one person to click send on the 12th! I hope i won't have to wait too long! let the stress continue...

    If the address your college uses is the EU one then you will get a "non-UK" email on the 12th.

    Where have they been sending letters to previously?

    All contact from them so far has been via email so I'm not sure which address they'd use

    Sounds like they have your EU address.

    One way or the other you'll find out on the 12th
