    however my interviews for newcastle and leicester are on the same day.

    I already emailed to confirm my leicester interview and i only just got my newcastle interveiw today.

    Is re-arranging usually ok to do? I have emailed to see if i could re-arrange and will also ring monday..

    has anyone had experience with this?

    help would be appreciated

    last year i tried to re-arrange my newcastle interview because it was at 9am and i live in edinburgh which meant i would have to stay in newcastle the night before but they wouldn't change it. however, in your situation i can't see how they can say no because you literally cannot make it on that day at all, no matter the time of day. what day are the interviews on? because if it is soon it may be more difficult ot rearrange.

    good luck!

    I know of other applicants who couldn't get interviews rearranged last year, the medical schools both said that they needed to choose where they'd rather go . And Edinburgh don't generally interview undergrad applicants

    They got in touch around March time last year IIRC. If you don't say that its for another interview then that may help

    You can always try contacting Leicester if all else fails, say you made a mistake or something. Which do you think you'll choose if it comes down to it?
