    Hey guys,

    Got told by the north west PA course that I'm on a reserve list, so basically I've been unsuccessful. I'm just wondering what kind of experience and backgrounds applicants have? I have a 2.1 in medical science from Birmingham uni, five years in forensic psychiatry and two years in paediatric intensive care and emergency medicine. Wouldn't you think this would make me a good candidate?

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    A good candidate is more than just your qualifications. You can tick all the boxes quals wise and have had a weak ref or personal statement/CV otherwise so I wouldn't just go by quals. Ask for feedback.
