Quite surprised to get an interview, it also went to my spam so I did not realise until a day later, now to dig out my research methods books!

The wait has made me ever so fixated on my phone. I would check emails during the night half asleep then forget by the morning. Must learn to manage this better.
Good luck everyone going for interviews. UEA interview on monday.
