I have, and I would say the shorter version gives you adequate information. Quite easy to score as well.

In my experience, it's very difficult - I couldn't do it, despite trying to demonstrate how transferable my skills were. I'd get interviews for posts unrelated to my experience, but they'd always go with someone with more experience in that area. That being said, I managed to get on the course with ...

It's not just 8 year olds it had that effect on! I can hardly talk about it without crying!

Not strictly telly, but has anyone seen Up? (New Pixar film)

I sobbed all the way through, apart from when I was crying with laughter. Such a poignant film - not a kids' film at all!

Maybe I'm just cynical, but I suspect that Danyl performed a Whitney album track as part of the deal to get Whitney on the show - if you watch it back, they kind of labour the point about it being a track from her new album - available now etc etc!

Nope - I have a low 2.1, and am on the course.

Many people in my cohort don't have a masters either, with a 2.1 being enough.

It obviously depends on which courses you apply to however, a low 2.1 is not enough for some courses, which has been previously discussed on here

I love Strictly, but am struggling to get into just yet - it's the same every year when there are so many people.

Chris was good, but he really annoys me on BBC Breakfast, so for that reason, I don't want him to win.

Alesha was a lot better this week, bless her!

Petty liars... People who tell stories where the sole point seems to be to big themselves up (do they not realise it's arrogant to suggest that every man you've met fancies you?)... People who don't give you credit for ideas you've had - for example, you tell them about something and they then 'advi...

Commiserations to you. But look at the positive - you did the best you could have done on the day and received praise for it. BUT - It is frustrating, however, when you've done your best and someone with more relevant experience gets it. Everything happens for a reason - next week may well be your w...

For my previous RA post I had the interview on a Tuesday and randomly had a call on the Saturday to offer me the job.


Good luck! And congrats on the other two interviews!
