I apologise for stressing you out - any additional stress during this process is very unnecessary. Thank you for the reply, I can completely see your point. I guess 1st reserve is a weird position to be in because it can go either way. So close yet so far. And the waiting continues.. Good luck to you too!
No worries! Please don't apologise or feel bad! I was just making light of my really annoying pedantry! :lol:

My fingers are crossed for you! Let's hope the orange turns into a dark blue. :)

I am so happy (/terrified)! It's my first year applying, graduated my UG in 2016, and seriously was just applying as a practice run. This is much more than I had expected or hoped for. For those still waiting on UCL - letter recieved lunchtime today dated 1st March.

Really disappointed... fourth time applying (realistically should have been second though as the first two times I wasn't ready enough), have MSc and 4 years of experience...

Good luck to those who have been invited :)

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!
I've just got a letter myself just now saying I'm 2nd reserve! Agreed that it definitely feels better than a straight rejection! Could I ask at all whether you would be able to post/message if you get offered an interview at all? As I will be anxiously waiting for it to move after you!
