Just got the final letter... what a year. I honestly don't think I can face all this yet again.

Edinburgh
Glasgow
Oxford
IOP

Now it's all pinned on Edinburgh reserve lists moving. I wonder if all 200 people who selected health boards have been given interviews or are on the reserve list? I think Nicole will be getting a few phone calls on Monday from anxious reserve listers! Oh well, first time applying to great so have got this far.

Hertfordshire
UCL - Number 8

Wow, I thought the application part was hard, but now I somehow have to get through my all encompassing anxiety about interviews :S

Good luck to everyone else. I wish you all the best.

Thank you Sinead and Fayester.

My intention was to show people that it is possible. I guess if I had actually listened to all the myths I've heard about getting onto the course, I would have given up before I began! :lol:

Sinead, I suspect that with the London courses there is probably more movement than in other areas because there are more courses in a closer geographical area. Also I believe that the RHUL interviews are later on this time - another thing that is going to affect how much movement there is, people are more likely to have been offered places at other uni's already. So don't give up hope and keep preparing.

Congrats to all those you have pending interviews and commiserations to those without any this year round. But remember it'll soon be time to apply again. After all the "The darkest hour is before the dawn".

Newcastle (4 for 13) Fingers crossed as its my first choice!
Manchester Woo Hoo!
Leeds
IOP

When the interviews come around, if anyone has a Newcastle interview and isn't going to use it due to other offers of places can you please cancel your attendance. Im so close to having an interview at 4th place and really want to go there! Muchos Gracias!

Well, my final results are in:

Herts
Oxford
Royal Holloway :D :D
Southampton

Second time applying and even though I only have one interview I am absolutely delighted!!! It's a really nice feeling knowing that I have made some progress since last year. Even better is that out of the four courses I applied to, Royal Holloway is my first choice. Now just got to get through the next hurdle...

Psychlad - Really pleased for you this year!!!!! Well done!!!!! It only takes one :D

Salomons (7th on the reserve)

First time applying and I'm really chuffed to get a reserve spot!
It's nice that the waiting is finally over!
Here comes the inevitable question, how likely do you think it is that I'll get an interview when I'm 7th on the reserve list??
Hey cinderella, how do you know what number you are on the reserve list for Salomons?

My results:
UCL
Herts
Essex
Salomons
