I’m applying for Natural Sciences 2021 intake (with placement year where offered) at Southampton, Loughborough, UEA and Bath. I’m currently waiting for my reference to be added to my application so also no offers yet. I’m mostly worried about the interviews. What’s your first choice as it stands Layla.t? Mines either Loughborough or Southampton.

I managed to visit Lancaster for a tour in October just before the lockdown so since it’s the only uni I’ve visited I’m biased towards it!
But Loughborough has the lowest entry requirements (still quite high with AAB) so if I get an offer that’ll probably be my insurance.
I’m nervous for the interviews too but since I’ve been preparing for Cambridge interviews (I didn’t apply last min bc of the stress) it seems less scary in comparison!

I’ve only visited Loughborough and it seemed really great. The low entry requirements are definitely a pull factor as it would reduce my stress especially with the uncertainty with exams but it’s also the furthest away from where I live which frightens me. Hopefully we’ll get some offers!

I live in the south west and all my unis except bath are hours away so I feel you! Good luck with your application, it’s such a relief when it’s properly off and you get the confirmation email

Hi Layla.t

If you've been preparing for Cambridge interviews, I wouldn't be nervous!
There is a video that you might find useful about what to expect at a Loughborough interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEzP7VcAyfM
Good luck with you applications

Out of interest, how long did it take for those uni’s to give you an offer /an interview if you don’t mind answering?
I’m constantly refreshing my emails aha

Thanks for letting me know! I’ve applied to Lancaster, Loughborough and Leeds like you, as well as Nottingham and Bath. I only sent my application properly off on Monday and got all the welcome emails yesterday so it’s early days. Congrats on your offers and good luck with Cambridge!

Good luck with your interview on Wednesday - just curious how quickly did you get offered an interview from Southampton? My application should get properly sent off tomorrow so I’m wondering how long I might have to wait. Also, have they given you much guidance on what to expect, personally I really like to prepare for things and the idea of an interview is probably the thing making me most anxious.

Thanks you! I’m so nervous!! It took about 2 weeks to get an invitation to interview. I think there are some interviews on 2nd December then 13th January (both Wednesdays) as I had the choice to book one of those if that helps. Good luck!
