    Just checking if there are any very "mature" students still waiting to hear from Leicester GEP. I only received an online acknowledgement and haven't't heard any more.... trying not to worry..... If anyone is in the same boat it'll be reassuring to know. I know they say till end of feb to be called for interview but really? Almost four months of waiting....???:confused::confused:

    Still waiting too...

    I'm also a very mature student still waiting to hear from Leicester. Thinking of calling them early February if I still haven't heard anything by then.

    21/25, but it may be that my work experience is not what they're hoping for. I have mainly worked as a Biomedical scientist but have managed to do 12 months of care work/HCA work along the way.

    Yes. I checked with them that it would mean I was eligible to apply (as it was in three chunks over a period of six years). I guess most applicants would have 12 months of more substantial caring experience. Am hoping voluntary work will show motivation in that direction but am wondering if it may not really be what they are looking for. Where else did you apply?

    If they said it is eligible then surely it should be?

    I've had an interview with St. Georges last week. Still waiting to hear back from Nottingham and I was rejected from Warwick. How about you?

    I know it's eligible, I just wonder if the majority of applicants may have more. Will see I guess.

    Have got interviews in Warwick and Swansea but no word from Southampton.

    Hmm maybe you should give them a call, maybe you did not get enough points from your personal statement.

    Just thought I'll give an update. I STILL haven't heard anything so contacted Leicester today, they say all should hear by end of this week. If you have an interview on 18 or 19th Feb you should also hear around this week. Well, here we go.... All the best to those still waiting to hear:confused:

    I'm still waiting too. Although I expect a rejection, it would be good to have some closure. 4 months is a long time!

    Hi Airballoon, yeah-agreed. I still haven't heard but am not expecting anything other than a rejection after such a long time.
