Anyone heard back from Merchant Taylors yet? I absolutely hate the wait! The postman seems to never come around in the mornings any more, just to bring rubbish post later in the day and the unknown numbers answered with nervous anticipation turn out to be customer service reviews from BT or the likes of that...
Anyone have past experience when the schools usually start inviting kids for interviews? is it a week or 2 or 3? Do you get "no"-s at the same time as "yes"-s and do they always even bother? The letters generally say nothing about the interview dates... just the offers dates.. Am a wreck!

Hi,

I have received a call today from MTS and my son has been invited for the interview. Only half will get through will get through to the interview stage as I was informed by the lady from MTS office...and in the end, 60 places will be offered after the interview.

Hope that helps.

if they are seeking to fill 60 places, they will be making quite a few more offers, perhaps double that number to ensure that they get 60 acceptances.

Yup, if you were to read the MTS prospectus, it is mentioned that more than 100 places will be offered but only 60 places to be accepted.

Thank you All:) My postman also finally came around with good news:) The letter btw says that they are interviewing 220, offer places to approx 170, while expecting 50-60 to accept. So we stand a good chance! Good luck to all DS-s on the day!!

Well done to everyone else who got good news! What are you going to ask your son to wear? A suit, school uniform or a smart jacket and trousers? We've got Mon 28th Jan so plenty of time to fret...
