    Thank you. I'll drop them an email. I really need all the help I can get, 2 weeks to prep and I'm struggling with it.

    I'm on mobile so can't link you to it but I did post about the things that I found helped me for the mental arithmatic section, 'chunking' numbers etc. If you think that might be of any help, have a look at my post history - it was only last Wednesday or Thursday I think.

    The first section isn't as hard as it seems, you just need to work out the tricks.

    The second part is a lot of statistics so revise all the various graphs and tables etc.

    I'm still waiting on my other reference and I'm so darn scared!! Do you think my passing both skills test will be in my favour for applying so late?

    I rang UCAs to check and they said 75% of places have been filled, and it's up to universities how they proceed with the final 25% (and tbh ucas seemed a bit confused about what the government was doing..). I'd imagine if you've already been offered an interview/verbal offer you're safe but if you havent got interview yet you possibly aren't. I panicked as I have interview at Reading tomorrow, which I assume is still going ahead as they haven't contacted me to say otherwise.

    This is only for univeristy based courses btw, scitts and schools direct should keep recruiting.

    Ohh I hope I'll still get my offer then! Thank you

    Crikey it's all so nail-biting! If I don't get offered a place at Goldsmiths on Monday, I apparently need to withdraw my other applications and go for the second round of choices. It's a bit tricky to find out which schools have vacancies for their SD places, as the info on UCAS isn't up to date.

    UEL and LSBU cover really different areas - UEL is out as far as Barking and mostly Newham/Hackney/Tower Hamlets where LSBU is Lambeth, etc. so maybe look at where you live and how you will travel, and also UEL do the specialism routes which is maybe an added bonus? Just look at differences between the courses and also the kind of feel you got on interview day. All PGCEs are more or less created equal, so it's wherever you think you will be happiest!

    My interview at Wolverhampton Uni for primary next Wednesday has been cancelled!

    Official explanation is;

    'Unfortunately, the National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) have enforced a 'reserve organisation recruitment control' which means that we have reached the maximum numbers we can recruit to this route at this time.'

    Oh I'm sorry to hear that, that was the same reason as my rejection email
    Has anyone else had this happen or is it just wolves at the moment? As maybe they just took on too many students

    My uni is asking for so much for the interview.

    I felt bad asking the class teacher of where I did my volunteering to write me a reference as it was. Got a interview invite asking for a letter written by the class teacher stating my competence in certain areas, and for it to be printed on the schools letterhead and signed by the teacher. All with 4 days notice! I might just ask if she can print out a copy of my reference rather than having to rewrite a whole new statement. Do you think this would be ok?

    I feel like I'm asking too much from her, when I know she is a busy person as it is!

    I rang up UCAS and tried to change my UCL choice to a Schools Direct scheme. That was what they suggested. (I figured that if I hadn't heard from UCL by now I wasn't going to get an interview.)
