Foundation School Allocations

Well the results are out, and I'm very pleased to announce that I was allocated to my first choice foundation school - (more details coming to The Real Little medic later). The results were not supposed to be out until after 8am but apparently they were out just after midnight.

I'm well pleased to have got my first choice. The second stage is to rank individual programmes (jobs basically). Although I don't yet know the details of this process, it may be that I have to go through all 240+ jobs and put them in order of the ones I'd like or it may just be a case of ranking 20 or so and hope for the best. I assume details of part 2 will surface over the next couple of days.

Hope everyone else got their first choice and good luck with picking your programmes.

UPDATE: - I have to rank all 287 jobs in preference order. That should be fun.

I got my first choice too, and thankfully we only need to choose six sets of rotations then rank them.

that's fab tlm!!! :) so you'll be nearer to london now i take it? (i loved london!) :) have fun ranking your 287 jobs. oh my.

Closer to London? Far from it! We'll be pretty much the same distance, and even further in terms of travel time (better connections to London from the north than from the west). Everyone seems to underestimate that the bottom of England is REALLY wide and the Westcountry is the largest region in England.

It's practically the same distance from the tip of Cornwall to London as it is from the Edinburgh to London.

Congrats Medic I am very pleased you have got your first choice..x

Train from Bristol to London was always pretty good - admittedly I'm going back a couple of decades - so hopefully you won't feel too "rusticated".

Congrats on getting where you wanted. The near SW is a nice part of the UK and looking out the window today I am pretty sure the weather will feel a lot less dismal than in the NW...!
