Was unsuccessful at Leicester testing, a little bit unsure about applying to there in future as I'm not sure the testing is suited to my learning style :/

Trent (test done)
Sheffield
Royal Holloway
UCL

Did anyone who sat the Trent test by any chance ask when we'll hear back? I didn't t think to ask, but realised they're doing the rearranged tests on 17th, which is after the deadline, so not sure whether they'll make us wait a while to hear back then?

My progress so far:

Liverpool > Liverpool
Teeside > Teeside > Teeside
Leeds
UEA


2018

Good luck all! :)

Hello everyone,

First time applicant here.

UCL --> 1st on reserve list
Royal Holloway
IoPPN
Leeds

Do previous applicants have any idea of how much the reserve list usually moves? I'm very eager to find out a bit more info from people more experienced than myself, so any responses will be truly appreciated.

Best of luck to everyone :-)

Well done on your reserve place! I think I read its moved 4 places before, but think that was 2016 potentially, not sure how helpful that is sorry. Can i just ask whether you got informed via letter or email please?

Thank you very much for the reply - that's good memory right there. I got informed via letter dated 1st March.

No matter the outcome I'm still happy I wasn't flat out rejected!

Thank you! I think as first reserve you should have a pretty good chance!
