I just wondered if anyone had heard anything regarding the Embryology posts? I'm pretty sure we should have heard something by now, so any hope I had is fading quickly!
Is it true that most posts are taken by people already working within the NHS? I'm on course to achieve a 1st in my Biology degree, have done considerable amounts of voluntary work and I've also visited a number of labs to spend time with Embryologists. Looks like it was all in vain! :-(
got rejected fot clin biochem......looks like the verdict is out.....those havent heard yet may have chance still
I got replies back when I sent mine off, they all said if I hadn't heard 3 weeks after the closing date, then I should assume I'm unsuccessful.
One week to go o.O
I don't think that "one rejects you they all tend to for a previous applicant" rule applies. With 400+ applicants there's really just a hairline difference between people who get shortlisted and the very good applicants who don't, so across 4 applications you'd have to be stand out A LOT to get onto all 4 shortlists. Realistically speaking you're only going to be on 1 or 2 shortlists even with a great application. Even if you just get onto 1 shortlist you must be doing something right, it takes a lot to get from 400+ to <10.
