    Can't seem to find a thread for people starting the course this September, thought it would be good to get to know anyone applying or anyone who's been made offers 😁

    Oh congratulations! Is it a conditional offer or unconditional?

    I am a qualified dental nurse with 4 Scottish Highers (ABBC) but none in science and so I am currently doing an access course at college. I'm in my 30's so definitely classed as a mature student!!

    How about you? What is your background? How long ago did you have your interview and (without giving too much away) can you give any hints regarding what to expect on interview day? I'm really nervous!!

    Did you apply anywhere else?

    Cheers

    Aw, I'm 30 too, I'll be 31 when I start in September!! 😱 I've been a dental nurse for 12 years and always wanted more but had my son at 22 so life went on hold for a while, I recently completed an access to nursing course which covered pure sciences which helped! My maths gcse wasn't good enough so I'm in the middle of redoing that which meant my offer was conditional on me gaining that. So it's full steam ahead with tutors etc!
    I'm not going to say anything about the interview other than it's so lovely, really chilled, I wasn't really able to prepare as it's so hard to when you don't know what they'll ask! Look at the advice that they have online about it they tell you what you need to know will cross my fingers for you, be nice to not be the only old person! 😂

    It's great to hear that the interview was a nice experience for you. Good luck with your maths, I'm sure you'll smash it!

    Is this your first time applying? I've heard from so many people that it took more than one attempt to get into uni. I have to say I would be totally gutted if I didn't get offered a place this year.

    Great to hear that Portsmouth was your first choice, it is mine too. However, I would be delighted to go anywhere which offered me a place lol

    Exciting times for you!!

    Yes! First year applying! I think I got lucky as I've heard some take longer than one attempt. But I strongly believe if you're what they're looking for you'll have no trouble, I'm sure you'll do great and hey, you may even be offered more than one place! If you're successful at portsmouth let me know we'll have to swap numbers or something, be nice to know some of the people starting 👍🏼☺️
    Good luck with all of them, just be yourself and stay as relaxed as you can 👌🏼
