So as a newbie to this stuff here are my results:

Herts
Salomons
Oxford
Trent (1st Reserve)

Hopefully someone will want to give up their place! :D

So, as of yesterday I'm happy to post:

Lancaster
Manchester
Bangor
Leeds

Second year applying and it's definitely not sunk in yet.
Good luck to everyone on reserve lists and for everyone who didn't get on this year keep trying, it really does pay off eventually even though at times you might feel like giving up.

I am pleased to report that I eventually managed to kick clinical psychology's butt:

UCL
Bath
Salomons
Liverpool

I have just accepted my place at Liverpool (which was very scary!) and it was my second time applying. Congrats to everyone with offers, and good luck to others still trying. This forum has generally been helpful to me in the past, and I will contribute to the thread about my experience and share some words of wisdom that I have picked up along the way.

Hey everyone,

Congratulations on the successes, and for everyone who managed to bravely survive such a grilling process! After two interviews at Salomons and then Trent, I am pleased to say I have been offered a place at the latter. This was my first time applying and so I'm still continuing to pinch myself!

Last week of this loooooong process!

Good luck to everyone still waiting for that final outcome, and well done to all of us for surviving. Why do I have the suspicion that there will be lots of potential psychologists reaching for the wine on Friday night? ;)

So heres my update...

Bangor
Lancaster

So disappointed with myself re: Liverpool. Presented myself as a scatter brain so not surprised with the result.

Hope to hear from Manchester though....

Any people on here accepted/declined Manchester? Not seen much chat about it!!

Selfishly in my excitement at my career plan B as a film writer, I forgot to say congratulations to you both! Yay for blues!
