Hello all!
I'm a student from the US who recently applied to about four conservatoires over in the U.K. I've been placed on the reserve list at Guildhall, and was wondering if anyone could give me some insight as to what chance I have of actually getting off the reserve list. I believe it is unconditional reserve. I do have a couple more auditions left, but realistically, I don't know how to gauge U.K. Schools as I am unfamiliar with the acceptance rates, qualifications and certifications.

Any and all insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks to all.

Hi there,
I received an unconditional reserve from the Royal Northern College of Music back in early January (I think).

Hello Paddy_C! Congratulations! Did you audition in person? All mine are regional in New York.
What is your instrument, if you don't mind my asking?

Cool, I'm a baritone at the moment ;P I auditioned at RCM and RAM and was unsuccessful (although I got through to the second round at the RCM).
Yourself? (If you don't mind me asking )

Oh how wonderful! If I could have chosen my voice part I'd have wanted to be a baritone 😊 I'm a soprano! Lots and lots of competition there.

I applied to RCM, RAM, RCS, and Guildhall. I've only heard back from RCM (also unsuccessful) but somehow managed to snag a reserve at Guildhall! I've yet to audition at RAM actually!

Nice! Granted Soprano places can be particularly competitive but they have some of the most beautiful parts and you're obviously good with a reserve from Guildhall! Good luck with the RAM

Thank you! Hope you make it off the reserve at RNCM! Do you know when you might hear back from them?

Thanks Sorry for the late reply. They say it could be anytime between February and August, although they emailed me some feedback about a week and a half ago. ( apparently I requested it but I don't remember doing so :laugh:) I'll let you know if hear anything else.
