Hi everyone, I accepted the offer last Thursday with the second email link they said, but just got an email again asking to make sure we accept by the 26th . SO I accepted again, and requested the code again. Anyone else, got a further email? 

Happy Monday!

I just got an email from RBS to confirm acceptance of summer school place too - i accepted the place again (just in case i didnt the first time it was sent!! I am sure I did confirm last week though) - hope it doesn’t confuse things as I’m sure they’ll be loads of people who confirm twice just in case!!

I got one too so it must be a general email to all.  I accepted DD place last Thursday and when I click on the link in today's email it asks if I want to start another registration so I'm assuming that means they have the initial acceptance

I’ve already confirmed twice. When I got the original email and then when they updated the link. 
 

Today’s email said to confirm you accept the offer made (same as the second link) so I took that as the offer of waiting list. 
 

I’ve emailed back to ask if I need to do it for a 3rd time but will do it again if I don’t hear back.

I got one too, I think they are reminder emails to accept “the place “ been offered to you, even waitlist place, but it does confuse you in the wording especially if you have accepted already, makes you feel like double checking they received the original acceptance form.

 

At least there may be some movement on waiting list places after Friday then, good luck to everyone🙏🏻

I sent an email (by reply of the latest request) saying that I had already accepted twice but happy to do again - they have replied straight away apologizing and that it was a mistake and that they do have our acceptance.

The email that asked us to do it again - I hit reply to that email and said 'done/happy to do again?' within minutes recieved:

 

Dear Name


Our apologies, it was an automated email. We have Child’s name form here, thank you.

 

Kind Regards

does anyone know if the financial assistance form needs to be filled now or only if a place is offered?

The email we received which offered  a spot said the deadline is March 24.

Same here! I accepted the waiting list offer last week, just got another email asking to accept so did it again. Emailed them to make sure they received it!

so people who have been on waiting list before, is there a set time when places are offered if there are any spaces or could they happen at anytime? I am certainly not expecting anything here but was curious.

I think the email said the waiting list stays open until 2 weeks before the intensive and therefore an offer could come at any time between now and then.

There may be one or two offered early next week, given the deadline for acceptance is today, but not many people would go through the whole rigmarole of taking photos etc. and expense and then turn down their place. If travel restrictions aren’t eased by the summer, more places will open up then as the foreign students who’ve been offered places won’t be able to come.

Yep, we also did and also accepted twice, to be on the safe side. Have also written to the RBS and they have come back stating these emails are automatically sent without checking in the system whether the palce has already been accepted.

So we were on the spring intensive waiting list and had an email to say it closed the same day as we had the email to confirm a wait list place for Summer Intensive. Very confusing with the then automated emails, technical fault accepting the summer waiting list etc 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ 

Basically they email to tell you when the wait list closes so I assume no offer of a place after this date even if someone pulls out??? But I could be wrong.

I was thinking if things get better with covid, more places will be open up for non residential too. Good luck to everyone on the waiting list 🤞

Hi Everyone, I wish they had told us sooner about the 120 hours allowance for the PCR test.  It would have given me more options. Also, I never got the email about the t-shirt order (until today), when was that sent?

For anyone taking part in the online spring intensive, have you had an email with the zoom links yet??

We're booked on but not had anything yet. RB are usually early with these things and due to the bank holidays thought it may arrive today?? 🤔🤔
