    Hi there. I know this post wasn't for me, but i thought i'd comment!
    I had my interview at Kingston the other week (wednesday 23rd nov.) and i got a letter informing me that i'd been offered a place Monday just gone, woo!!

    Which i accepted!
    The interview process isnt too scary at Kingston to be honest.
    Split into two groups & taken to do Maths, English and problem solving tests.
    Maths is 20 multiples choice questions, up to GCSE level so nothing too tricky
    English is a childs work and you have to write about what they did well & what they didnt do so well & how they can improve etc
    And problem solving is working in teams etc!
    Then you have your individual interview, which i really thought i'd flunked, but obviously not!
    Good luck!!
    Ohh thats alright thanks Ive got mine on the 15th, what kind of questions did they ask you apart from the typical? anything specific to do with english? Ohh what if you get your maths questions wrong even though I shouldnt never knw! LOL Congratsss for getting the offer btw (Y)

    I've applied for Primary Education this year too... although i'm deferring entry!
    I've applied to St. Mary's , Leeds Met, Kingston, Chester and Middlesex.
    St Mary's is my favourite and have an interview there on the 14th December.
    Have an interview at Kingston on the 23rd November - Wednesday! Anyone else at these dates!?
    Chester have asked for my work experience record and had an email from Leeds Met saying their offers/interviews have been delayed!
    Very excited for interviews, had a mock one today in school and seemed to go well!
    Bring it on .. and good luck to everyone applying!!
    I have an interview at St Mary's on the same day! so I'll see you there :P but I only found out on weds, so I'm freaking out majorly because It's my first interview and I know nothing x

    What's your name, and what do you think you'll be wearing, I'll come over and say hi
    I have no idea, I know we have a tour and a talk, and then it'll be a group and individual interview, as well as the written maths and english test. Someone said that they had to do a group presentation on an educational issue, but didn't say anymore :/ what sort of research and prep have you done? Cause I'm struggling, and really not talking anything in
