    For those of you getting the nottingham questionnaire today, how long ago were your applications sent off. i sent mine off on the sunday just gone. ive reeived an acknowledgement from one of my other unis so im assuming the other choices have received my form but i have hear nothing from nottingham yet so was wondering what the gap was betwwen submitting the form off and getting the questionnaire?

    Anyone know whether voluntary work/ paid work should be included in the work experience section? I mean...it is all work...and I do gain experience from it.
    Only paid work - and then I think it's only really if you've had a pretty consistent job (as I had one but the hours varied wildly so didn't bother including it).

    Voluntary and work experience can only go in your PS.

    That's exactly what I'm mildly worried/confused about! Just work experience, or volunteering stuff too? Agrh!

    I've done the SAQ, just waiting for my interview date.

    If you don't check it it's your loss because you get 2 weeks from when the email is sent.

    You really should have checked the prospectuses before applying :p:
    Wow you filled that out quick! When did you send off your SAQ?

    Obviously I looked at prospectuses. It's just that I didn't really pay much attention to the admissions process. I knew from the open day at Nottingham that I met the minimum requirements so I didn't read that section. Come to think of it they didn't mention the questionnaire at any point on the open day...

    Anyway in the grand scheme of things I don't really mind doing a questionnaire. At the end of the day I still would have applied even if I would have known there was a questionnaire. Taking a hour to fill in something isn't exactly a major factor when trying to decide where you want to spend the next 5 years of your life.

    This isn't the UCAS form. It's a questionnaire that Notts send to their applicants.

    Mmm fair enough. I just found from people's experience that the questionnaire is dodgy. Consultants have filled it in for their sons and failed to get an interview.

    I did my SAQ 2 days ago (quite long... longer than the CAF anyway).
