Do you understand what the East of England guidance means re which WSQs to answer? They mention answering "yes" to teamwork and research for Cambridge. Does this mean ticking those options off (but teamwork isn't an option... Wondering if they meant leadership?) or do they mean answering the white space Qs?

You just need to tick research in section 3, the "tick box" part is indicating what type of SFP you would like, Assuming you want an academic (research) one; answer the white space q's in sections 2,4 and 7 I believe.

How do we know if we have been shortlisted or not? Have emails been sent out to those that have been? I haven't gotten an email but it says 'interview' on my Oriel timeline thing (but I can't seem to book an interview yet- does that mean I didn't get one?) :frown:

Applied to London and it says 'shortlist' in progress

My EBH and Oxford ones say ‘longlisted’ too, anyone else heard back?
