    Seems like they are just putting most people that applied so far in a group interview. -_-

    oh of course, I remember you talking about that now.
    Anyway, I do hope your reference sorts itself out soon!

    I popped in to the school tthat did my reference today and left some chocolates at reception for the head and the teacher that did it. I felt really grateful they did it so quickly for me!

    That would depend on the person. I don't like having group interviews with no chance of an individual one. I only know the interview procedures for one of my choices and they don't have a group interview, thankfully!

    Okay freaking out!!! Just logged into track and it says ST Marys twickenham is: course full…….


    Mine says the same. Maybe it says that until they close the course and then go through the offers?

    Saying that, Reading have actually given me an interview via email and there's nothing about it on Track haha!

    Anybody who has already passed the skills tests able to answer this for me?

    When it asks for your qts registration number on the application - how do you put it in?

    As you have one for the maths and a different one for the english - yet it only lets you type in one of them.

    If I were to change one of my choices before my references have been added do I have to resend a reference request? Or does everything just stay the same? I'm nervous about changing something and then having to resend everything!

    A lot of interview processes for pgces have group interviews. One of mine had one, a teaching task and an individual interview. But it didn't tell you about the individual one until you got there,

    No it's fine you can change it now, that's what I did and I didn't need to resend my reference requests

    I've got an interview! St Mary's on 10th December

    I never expected anything to happen this quickly!
    Congrats, I didn't realise they would be interviewing so soon! Is that for primary? Does it give you any info on the layout for the day?

    Hi all, I'm really worried! My first reference has been completed but just got a reply from my second reference and she said she has recieved the reference request and will gladly do it in the next few weeks! She is a head teacher from the primary school I volunteered in and I have already stressed on my first email to her the competitiveness of these applications. I was just wondering do you think I should wait until she has finished it and if so will it effect my chances? Or email her back and ask if she can do it any sooner, just don't want to sound ungrateful! Xxx

    Do you mean the number you need for the actual TT application form? If you have booked your skills tests you should have a number that begins with TA...that's the one to use.

    Good luck!

    To be honest I'd email her again, explaining that from next Thursday some courses may close. The next few weeks is a broad amount of time, but if she really does take three weeks to do it it would have added up to nearly a month! So yeah I'd politely say something just reminding her that courses may close next week so the latest you want to get it sent it next Thursday.
