    yaaay, that's good that they're not doing interviews, even if it is still a bit of a wait, at least there's not the stress of an interview aswell! Anyone else apply for the modern languages specialism?
    Where else have you applied to? Any news?

    Yeahh I know Well I rang them to ask when I would be likely to hear about my application, and they said they'd decided not to do interviews and would be sending offers towards the end of February... still a bit of a wait, but it's better that having the interviews in April and then waiting to hear!! Which specialism did you apply to?
    exactly (:. I applied to the Early Years specialism, wbu?

    I was ill on the day of my interview so I found it horrific if I wasn't so ill I don't think I'd have done as badly as I did but I couldn't think straight so I don't think I did myself justice, which is probably why I was rejected (though I think I must have been on the 'maybe' list since it took them forever to decide, I didn't hear back for weeks!) It was just a one-on-two interview (one of me and two of them) and we didn't really talk about anything to do with education to be honest. They kept asking about creative things though, and I think I fell down when I said I wasn't Picasso and wasn't going to pretend to be because I didn't think it was right to lie just to get a place in a university - if they didn't want me for who I am, then I don't deserve a place...

    It wasn't that scary, the worst bit was the wait outside - they were running very late by the time they got to me (I hate having a name at the end of the alphabet - it means I'm ALWAYS last at interviews!) when I got in, they were really friendly and tried to put me at ease and everything, it's just unfortunate that I was ill

    I don't know if they'll do it the same this year though =/
    ahhh i see. But you were right, there's no point in completely lying to get a place because if you don't live up to what you said, or forget what you said it could all go wrong. Thankyouu :-)

    Dundee, UWS and Glasgow Dumfries campus, I've got my Dumfries interview on the 7th of febuary but that's the only place Ive heard back from so far
    Have you heard from anywhere yet?
    Aww that's nice to have heard from one though! I haven't heard about my application from anywhere, though I only applied to two...because I want to do Spanish and Primary Education. But I rang Aberdeen on Monday to see when I might hear, and they said they have cancelled their MA Education Joint Honours programme for this year, and are reforming it, because of the Donaldson review, and so my application will automatically be put forward for the Hispanic Studies degree but I can't do Education too :/ There's always the PGDE, but it's a little annoying, especially because if I'd have known before the deadline I would have applied to a whole load of other places! I'm just really anxious to hear from anyone! Sorry rant over. Anyway, do you have to prepare anything for your interview?

    I've applied for a joint honours education and behavioural studies at Aberdeen. Does that mean it is cancelled too?! Do you know if we get to change choices then or what will happen?

    Ahh sorry...I think so :| You should ring admissions, that's what I did. They told me they would be emailing everyone and then sending a letter to everyone this week to confirm all the details...I have been refreshing UCAS, the applicant portal and my hotmail permenantly for four days now little anxious! What they said was that because of the huge inconvience (not half!!), everyone who applied for a joint education course would get their application but forward for the other subject, and that no marks would be taken away because of the personal statement being about teaching etc. But still, I now need to know if I'm actually going to get a place on the, in my case, Hispanic Studies course, because then I have to choose between that and the PGDE or the Stirling course, if I get on the Stirling course :| ...ahhhh. Oh my days, wish they'd hurry up already! But I'm sure if you wanted to swap courses you could, as it's all their fault. Ooh and it says on Aberdeen's website that entry to Aberdeen is entry to a degree course, not a specific subject, so it's very flexible if you change your mind? Hope this is some help, sorry to have to break the news to you, let me know how it goes! xxx

    yaaay, for the same day? I was getting worried, because loads of other people had already heard back from Dundee! What do you think the group task will be?
    Yeah it is for the same day. At 9.45? I think the group task will possibly be presenting a drama or something along those lines. Not entirely sure though, just a thought. I'm quite nervous about preparing the presentation and getting that bit right!

    The group task for last year was to create a poster, according to someone I know who had an interview last year I think they had to design a school :/
