I've lurked on this forum for a long time, so feels weird to be finally posting, but I think it's helpful to see the highs and lows of the application process for everyone. Good luck all!

Probably related to getting on the reserve list after 1st ever interview quite early on in the process last year and the horrible wait until deadline day. Anyway, best of luck folks.

2023:
Herts
UEL (after selection tests)
UCL (after interview)
Coventry & Warwick (after reserve list for a place)

2024:

Was not expecting much being on an interview reserve list, but over the moon that I've been given the opportunity to attend interview at UEA! Nerves are now kicking in, it's starting to feel real again.
