i didn’t receive anything 😭
Hey guys, have anyone received an email yet? I thought it's already past midnight Aug 1 (also known as 11:59 July 31st) and they said emails are supposed to have arrived by this time.
It is so strange...
I remember that a fellow in this chatting room said that the institution has updated the website to move the releasing time to midnight 1st August, but I failed to see this on the website.???(confusing jpg.

The website https://www.johnlockeinstitute.com/essay-competition says "Candidates will be notified by email by midnight Tuesday, 1 August 2023." but isn't it already past that, like, 26 minutes ago??

The website reads Candidates will be notified by email by midnight Tuesday, 1 August 2023.

Thanks
Yeah, it is. Not midnight today, but tomorrow. They must’ve had a really hard time going through all of the submissions.

Do they inform you if you are not shortlisted?

Do they inform you if you are not shortlisted?

They did that last year, but with the amount of submissions this year I don’t know honestly. However, I’d say they will since they need to show a gesture of courtesy to all participants.

Used to be 20%, but with the volume of submissions this year, it’s hard to say
Does midnight on august 1st mean the night between July 31st - August 1st or does it mean tomorrow night?
I presume that it means 11:59 pm BST, August 1
