Anyone got interviews?

Suppose that is the good thing about applying to 4 Scottish Unis. They don't really care how you do in AH's unless you fail. How great would that be? Knowing you had an unconditional, regardless of exam results.

Lorah, just noticed you were unsuccesful at Oxford :( . Unlucky. They don't interview many people though do they? I know about 8 people who applied for Cambridge and they all have interviews. They do interview about 90% of applicants apparently.

Hope you get something from one of your other choices. I would be gutted if I didn't get in cos I've spent the past 2 years working towards my application.

Good luck :)

I really wouldn't worry bout it. Um...know the course well and they seemed to like work experience so be ready to answer anything on that! The questions they asked were pretty average, nothing was asked which completely threw me off or surprised me, so just go in and be yourself, u'll do gr8 ;) Good luck all :D

The weather is awful. I was nearly blown over walking to school! I am also really paranoid probably because I got one really early interview and now I am waiting for ages to get the next. Especially for Aberdeen. I keep logging in to the portal and seeing no change. It is so depressing:(

Yeah it sucks that we've not heard anything. Is there any order to this whole shebang of giving out interviews? Are Advanced Highers meant to be harder than A levels?????? I never knew about the not caring what we got for our AHs. *Andy shouts "Score"*

hehehe i keep logging into my portal too but no change!! i dont really understand what its for anyway seen as if were given an interview they have to send us a letter and if we get rejected we'll know through UCAS... i guess its supposed to tell us earlier? who knows!

(and still no post today :( )

Yeah typically the letters they send take 2-3 days to arrive whereas the portal is meant to be updated overnight so you should in theory find out earlier. Do you still get mail? Your postman must be on holiday or something. Just how bad is the weather where you live. Sure it's windy and rainy but can hardly call it torrential. Where in the NE do you live? Further north than Newcastle?

If you were talking to me i live in the North West, which means lots of rain and i also live right by the coast so lots of wind too :( and to top it all off i have bad circulation so i get really really cold if the heating's not on! xoxox

Sorry, can't read. Are we talking near Carlisle here? Thats the good thing about living on the east coast. Glasgow gets most of the bad weather and we get the leftovers.

I seem to bruise quite easily. Gave blood for the 1st time last Thursday and half my arm is now green :( aside from where they put the needle in of course :)

I log into the portal all the time and nothings changed...
Makes me sad!

I think this portal thing is evil.

Keeno - I will laugh if we get an interview on the same day again. IF. I'm starting to feel as though the Aberdeen one is never coming.

Although thats silly because they interview til March.

No south of Carlisle, in a middle class bubble called Lytham St Annes!
A green arm eh? that must be painful. poor you. xoxox

PS keep checking my portal...

Its just funny cos it stopped flowing before I gave the full pint and as soon as they pulled the needle out I started bleeding and judging by the amount of bruising must have been some internal bleeding too.

Was attacked by more manic nurses with needles today cos I had my second hep b immunisation today.

How you been? Got fun week at school ahead?
