    Did you enjoy your time there? I know bognor and there doesnt seem like much to do.
    I assumed that not many people apply because only 3 people were at my interview day but i guess that was early. Also a lot of my friends have never heard of the uni

    I had my interview for Secondary PE in November... didn't hear anything for 3 weeks but had a letter this week saying they are now just waiting on the Government and that we will have their numbers confirmed in the new year to offer places! They have told me they have told everyone that weren't successful a few days after the interview so that they could be passed to their second choices so I really hope this is a good sign?? GTTR hasn't changed for a month - it still says "interview" but I know they won't know anything different until the uni tells them! I just really want to know!!
    hi, this is what happened to me, apart from Ive applied for a Primary course. They said they won't know until the new year, its horrible waiting as I dont know how many people have been offered a place at the moment and how many places they can offer!? Also, my gttr is exactly the same, I want to know so badly!!

    Got a holding letter from Sussex. When their numbers are confirmed, I'll get my offer letter

    At my interview day all the chaps wore suits, the girls wore skirt/trousers and a smart top.

    I wore a knee length skirt and a black top with a black cardi, but it was freezing so kept my scarf on the whole time.

    I received my holding letter from Newman University the day after I had my interview there. They just said the same thing, basically I am on priority list for an offer as soon as they receive the number of places they can offer. i wish TDA would hurry up!!! I wore a suit. Black jacket, orange shirt and black pants.

    Hi! I have applied to Oxford to do secondary RE, I was wondering what classification you got for your degree to get offered a place at Oxford. Also I am really worried about Interviews and things, as I am unsure what to expect. I hear that you have to do a written test, is this to test subject knowledge or do they want you to produce an essay? I am terrible at having to produce written work on the spot without knowing what I have to write about. I hope you can help me.

    Congrates on your Offer by the way! :
