I know, I'm nervous but I also just want to know either way. RIW deadline in 27th so it should be before then!

I've had two mocks already and they honestly made me feel a lot more confident about interviews so I hope it goes well for you!

One was a conference done by my local schools and one was oxford outreach for north east but you should ask your teachers and they may be able to organise one for you!

Okay Thank you
I probably sound silly, but is a contextual applicant one with ECs or am I completely in the wrong ballpark? (as someone with ECs) BAHAHA

What do you mean by ECs? Contextual just means you go to a state school or live in an area which may have low progression to higher education, you have extenuating circumstances or other factors like this - I’m pretty sure!
PPE interview decisions have started to come out, so hopefully we're soon (both being TSA courses and all that jazz) !!!

I have a strange feeling we’re in the next round of decisions as E&M and PPE have both started receiving decisions and they’re TSA requiring courses… best of luck for the coming days guys! :smile:

Regardless of where we all end up we should make a group chat of human scientists for each uni AHAHA
