So, I’ve spoken to the MSc coordinator, and he says that as soon as he receives confirmation of my 2:1 (i.e. my transcript) he’ll send me an unconditional offer! The transcript, though, is taking a ridiculously long time to get to me. As soon as I’m accepted (it feels like I’m tempting fate saying that) I’ll be able to see all of the lectures and powerpoints for the previous cohort on the MSc, so I can’t wait!
In order to fund the MSc, I need to do it part time over two years and get a job. Ideally it would be a Healthcare Assistant post, so I’ve applied for about 20 since Monday including one where the Trust puts you on a list of suitable candidates and then offers you a literacy and numeracy exam – I’ve just heard from this one and been invited to sit the exam. I’ve not heard back from any of the others, but to get past the first stage of selection for the first job you applied for is pretty promising.
