    Hey guys, I have been extremely busy the last month and suprised to see that one of these threads weren't created.
    So all those of you who have applied here can talk in this thread and any interviews/offers you have/had and any advice for those who need it :).

    No acknowledgement for me either, just down as submitted on UCAS Track. Interview invitations can't be too far away.

    Dunno about anyone else but I'm shitting myself every time I check the mail.

    congrats everyone.
    i got rejected because i'm stupid enough not to contact them beforehand.
    (well i was struggling between manchester and liverpool till the last minute)
    reason for "unsuccessful application" is that they do not accept USA high school diplomas, not even with all the different standardized tests we need to take. not even when I said I'm willing to take the A-Levels to show my potentials.

    good luck everyone!

    yeah too bad. I called every uni before I applied... I know they said they only accept internationals and EU students (who don't have the IB) for the foundation course even if you have all of the required science subjects...

    had my interview today, i think it went quite well I wont write the content, but there was a group discussion on a given scenario, then three 8-minute interviews. One interview will on the discussion and then two more on other topics.

    Although it's wierd to say, i actually enjoyed the interview day, the interviewers were really friendly.

    I'm regularly going into the Stopford at the moment before I go into hospital and see many of you (but I've been told not to speak to you!). Well done for making it to Manchester in this weather!

    Good luck to everyone whether you've had an interview, going to have one or haven't heard yet.

    A US high school diploma is only equivalent to our GCSEs which we take at 16. Apparently it is equivalent to 5 GCSEs and we take 10+. I don't know how true that is but it definitely isn't anywhere close to equivalent to our A levels so that is why. There are schools that accept US students if you do some extra things so go for them!
