    I've applied for Secondary History at Sheffield Hallam - no acknowledgement yet!
    I've also applied for Leeds Trinity and York Uni via Schools Direct! Heard nothing!


    ...but I know that all University's have to keep their applications open for two weeks at least, so I'm thinking (hoping) that my Uni's haven't looked at their applicants yet!!

    Good Luck
    Finally, someone else that is applying for Secondary History! The majority here seem to be applying for Primary level?

    Got my welcome letter today, hopefully some interviews on the way...

    Received interview offers from all three choices for the 11th, 12th and 18th of December. This all just became a bit more real! I am not prepared at all...
    Well done, good luck!

    Why must this be so stressful?
    That's the nature of teaching. It doesn't end with the application I'm afraid.

    Hi, Had my interview for social science at the IoE today. Wasn't too stressful, there were 7 of us and we were told that there were 20 places, and if we impressed them today we should all get a place (they said we werent in competition!).

    we had to answer how what challenges we may face during the PGCE, how our subject is relevant to young people, and discuss a current educational topic. The individual interviews were really short (only 15 mins) we had to present our lesson plan and then have a 5/10 miniute chat (why do you want to be a teacher, why this institute, etc).

    My 1-1 was quite relaxed and we were laughing and joking a little towards the end. Its jsut hard becuase you don't know what they really look forward and how you come accross.

    On another note, i got asked to attend an interview today for Worcester uni for a Psychology PGCE, so there may be hope if I'm unsuccessful at the IoE!

    No I haven't sent mine off yet, got my final reference done today, but I am really confused about whether its modular or non modular for all my choices so I might ring them up tomorrow to check! Also I would really rather have my interviews after xmas now, I'm just sorting out revision stuff for my skills tests and working full time! I can't believe the short notice they are giving !

    I know its scarily short. You choose modular I chose the other one and they didn't receive it so rung UCAS and had to change it to modular. (I rung St Mary's last week) Good luck!

    This is why I am really confused, I thought modular meant for part time or flexible learning. Does that mean it should be modular for my other choices like roehampton etc?

    Hello! Mine is for Secondary RE.
    Are you travelling from far? From what they have sent me it seems it's going to be a very long day.
    I have an interview for Kings this Friday which seems a lot more informal from the email!

    I applied on the 21st and STILL I am waiting for my second reference.
    I was at the school on Friday and she said she'd do it over the weekend. I know its only Monday, but I'm aplying for Drama. Usually, youre bot likely to have a chance if youre not on a course by January. Every day is pretty much a huge loss in my chances and I've been patient enough now.
