Well this is quite a surprise, I thought I'd messed it up completely.

Manchester
Birmingham
Coventry(Still no letter received!!)
Staffs

I've never been reserve list before, with 3 interviews in previous years so, even though I have no idea where I am and it means more waiting, I feel that at least it's progress!

I'm really pleased that Manchester lets people know so quickly too, Birmingham took a month last year and the stress was unbearable!

completely surprised as I messed up on the interview on at least two questions (in the most comical way on one) but here goes

Manchester
Liverpool
Leeds
Lancaster

Esme-congratulations, hopefully the reserve list will move and we get a place

Congratulations to the blues and commiserations to the browns

Isn't it amazing how a person can get such varied results?! It just shows how unpredictable the process can be. Congrats Claire!

And congrats/commiserations to those on reserve lists. I'm on UEA's reserve and it's painful waiting! Do Manchester tell you your position on the list?

No, no information given about the size of the reserve list or where you are on it.

The waiting game continues!

Persephone - To be fair I knew I'd messed up my first interview at UEA so I wasn't surprised with that outcome, just glad I had another chance! Best of luck with yours :)

Thanks Nicola, good luck with your Liverpool interview too. Hopefully being a Manc reserve will be a nice confidence boost for our upcoming interviews :D

Maybe we could design a research study to investigate the relationship between being active on the forum and being a reserve for Manchester... :wink:
