It annoyed me that the application only asked for age. I can’t remember if it was this one that asked for income. Because, not to excuse my poor performance, but I was going through some stuff during GCSEs which made it hard to personally concentrate

It's not really a game of chance, it's whether or not you meet just the right set of criteria to be one of the 400 or so who will benefit the most from it
True, but there's most likely some random element to it as it is still determined by humans. We're not exactly infallible as a species

Yes, but "11% chance" is inaccurate. By the time you have been sifted into the group that will benefit the most, the 'chance' (if at all) will be much greater.

That's true I suppose, that's put my worries to rest a bit.

Guess the students in charge of CUSU are too busy to send out the emails

To be quite honest I'm not even expecting it tomorrow. I did hope that a world-class institution would be able to hold a promise.
If not, at least have the decency to notify us of their delays and give a reason.

I received an email this morning saying that i’ve been accepted into the CUSU shadowing scheme and was wondering if anyone else has.

The problem is I can’t remember what subject I applied for😂 I believe it was either English or Human, Social and Political Science.

Is anyone else doing the scheme and did anyone else apply for the same subjects? We can be friends so it’s not so scary when we go😊

I just received an email confirming that I have a place, though it doesn't say for which subject or what date. It said that the system is currently down hence the delay and lack of information.

Those details will come later.
They need to organize with volunteering students who/when can be a mentor.

Congrats on getting a place.

Holy crap, an 11% chance. That's quite daunting.
A part of the reason is because too many people who are not really eligible for the scheme apply for it, taking a chance.
We’ve seen a few even in this forum.

I presume that, if emails are unofficial, only successful people have got an email?
