    I applied for the flexible route as I have 3 children and a disabled husband. I have an interview on Jan 24th - had the letter last November. I had an e mail in December to say that all offers would be conditional until the funding plans were announced. That was expected.
    Yesterday I had an email from the GTTR to say that there had been a change on my application page. When I logged on my flexible route option had disappeared and, when I queried it with the university I was told that all places on the flexible option had been filled already. They only have full time uni-based places available. I can interview for this if I want but they are going fast.
    Seems a bit unfair that they have made their offers without interviewing all the candidates they had planned to interview.
    Has anybody else had a similar experience?

  3. Hi Kettle, in my experience this is common practice with ITT courses.
     
  4. Not the first time I've heard a story like this too. :(
