Re: Video Auditions for Colleges Sept 2020

I honestly think that colleges will do this properly. They may even follow up with a phone / skype interview It's in their best interest to get the best people, so they will make it work I wouldn't worry - there's been a lot of people posting tips and advice on nailing video auditions Good luck to y...

Bird announced their closure this evening until 20th April
Update - They have told students they are not closed just suspended face to face classes - providing online support (Whatever that means)

My dd just got a yes from Italia Conti. She’s delighted as it’s one of her dream colleges and she was so disappointed at not being able to go to Bird and Arts Ed this week
Congratulations to your dd.

Move It 2020 - Postponed

DD has just had an email from college saying that Move It has been postponed because of Covid-19

Feel sorry for the businesses and visitors who have paid out money for transport and hotels

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

I wonder if Bird realise (or care) how unexciting it is to receive their letter as we just know it’s either going to be a no or reserve list, think most places are given out on the day. Don’t get me wrong, daughter was over the moon at being on the reserve list but they must miss out on some sensat...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

Know how the dip in confidence feels! DD had her first audition yesterday at Bird and came out saying everyone is so much better than her. So difficult watching them being hard on themselves, think DD realises this year she has to get something as she said she won’t audition a third year. Can’t see...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

She's disappointed as thinks it means she's not good enough. Do people.get in off reserve? Read last years forum and only 2 who were I could see didn't get offered? Tell her not to be disappointed. I must admit although frustrating I think they are doing it fairly. My DD did some of the open day to...

Re: Auditioning for 2020 entry

I wish these colleges would give some rough ideas of rent costs on their websites, Universities have costs in the prospectus’s. It’s so hard if you get offered a place somewhere to then find you can’t afford to send your child there. Thank goodness for this blog do the colleges’ job! I think part o...

There’s a Premier Inn at Sidcup Station, literally 2 mins f...

Re: Auditioning and 18th birthday celebrations

It’s not always all over by Easter, so many variables and differences in colleges. Plus you haven’t said which ones you are looking at. Why don’t you postpone the NYC trip and go and celebrate once offers come in and she can relax properly? We didn’t plan anything when DS was auditioning for colleg...
