    Thanks! I chose 7-11, much preferred that age group when I did work experience. Your statement should be fine if you chose 5-9! Have to provide a sort of lesson plan for a book of your choice for part of the interview. Don't know what to pick! Has to teach them literacy but can also relate to another subject. Sure I'll be fine though. I just want an offer now!
    Maybe you could do something about the rainforest? Yeah it should be fine, do you have to deliver the lesson or just like explain the lesson plan? Is that all they have told you about the interview? I know me too, it's the waiting that makes me nervous and I'm checking my emails like crazy lol!

    Nah secondary art, why?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Because primary has so much competition but it seems like secondary might be less competitive.

    I do on the 16th, when's yours?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    mine is on the 18th, originally they wanted me on the 11th but I already have another one that same date which I had already confirmed and accepted.

    I asked for the 18th as its exactly a week later, lots of people seem to be going on the same day as you though!

    How have you decided what object/activity/game/photo to bring for your interview? I want to know I have made the right choice but its so hard!! lol

    Anyone else got an interview for Lower Primary at YSJ?

    I got invited for interview so much quicker than I thought - just one day after submitting my application! I must admit it's thrown me rather for six...having used up all of my holiday doing work experience I didn't expect to have to try and fit in an interview this side of Christmas as well. Can't wait, doing lots of prep this weekend for it and super excited...and a little nervous too. :-)

    Newman College, Birmingham: Interview

    Although they have got me to go through their online portal, my other choices have done so too. What was the point of UCAS then?!
    What do you mean?

    I had an interview at Leeds yesterday for 7-11. You just prepare a lesson and present it, you don't teach it.

    This is crazy. People already getting offers while some of us are being held back by our referees. UCAS needs to change the system. Should we join up and write a formal complaint?

    I feel the same, utterly let down by the whole system. :-( I just hope our references come through soon.

    There were 6 of us in the morning having our individual interviews and then 4 for the afternoon. We all did our lit and num tests at the same time; they are definitely easier than the skills tests! Interviews are tough, be prepared for a grilling but the interviewers were nice.

    Hi guys,
    I just wanted to check something. I know that we can change one of our choices within a week of sending the application. Presumably we need to do this through track? Can someone just confirm this is right? Thanks

    Congrats to anyone who has already got an offer, good luck to everyone who has an interview soon, and for anyone who has had a rejection, keep your head up!

    I have a question for everyone who has had an interview or has been given a date for one - how quickly did they process your application? And how late is your interview? I'm asking because my second referee is going to the submit their reference in the next couple of days. I'm away in Canada and don't get back until the morning of the 11th, and don't suddenly want an interview on the 12th - but nor do I really want an interview until after Christmas, because I have enough on my plate as it is with the final year of my PhD!
