I am applying this year for the Primary PGCE in Coleraine for 2017 entry and just wanted to link in with others who were applying, particularly those who have applied before. I applied last year and got through the story telling stage to the interview/ tests stage, but failed at the interview.
Any tips/ info/ support will be welcome!
Hi cmca86! I am the exact same, I think we had both chatted on a forum last year too? I didn't make it past the interview. Total nightmare. Really wish I could get in but now I'm terrified to apply again after the interview last year!!
Yes I remember your name from last year- hello! It's def tough thinking about going through it all again! I found the interview awful to be honest. Do you have any other options like going to England?
I found it awful too, I had done so much prep and the questions were just rubbish and weren't what I was expecting at all! Im seriously considering applying for a couple of places in England this year along with coleraine so at least I have a plan B! I also think I might not feel so much pressure about getting into coleraine if I have other options. What about you?
I have 2 kids so after much consideration i know I def could not go to away to England. Im thinking of applying to Queens as my back up, for English post-primary. Edge Hill in Lpool is supposed to be good if you'd thought of going there?
Totally felt the same about interview, also did loads of prep but found the questions a bit random. Also nerves took over!
yeah thats a good plan, I know a few people who went to Queens to do English post-primary as they didn't get into Coleraine. I have my heart set on Primary I'm afraid Yes, I'm thinking of applying to Edge Hill and Manchester...although the interview processes sound even scarier than Coleraine! I'm awful at interviews. I just wish the process for Coleraine was a bit quicker too, the months of waiting around are horrible...
Hi guys, I'm applying this year for the first time. Coleraine is my first choice.
Have any of you got any tips for me for the actual application? Are there any key words or anything that I should make sure to put in?
@lilysitt like you, I have my heart set on primary, always have. I really really hope to get into Coleraine!
