    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!
    I applied on the 28th and got offered an interview yesterday for the 11th

    I applied on the 26th and got an interview date the next morning. I had my interview on Wednesday but I haven't heard back from any of my other choices yet

    Has anyone got a Primary interview for St Marys, Twickenham? I got offered one there and IOE but can only go to one as I will only be bk from Dubai for xmas and live in Ireland. So feel like I only have one shot at this interview. Any tips?

    I personally would pick the University that you liked the most. I did not apply for IOE, as I have three that I really got a good feeling about on their open days, recommended by other PGCE students I know, and generally because they are my preference. St Marys is my first choice for the PGCE, but can you believe it all three of my choices came back with an original interview date of the 11th! St Marys got in first and originally offered that date, so they got it I'm afraid! I politely explained that I'd already accepted an interview to the other two and would they be willing to put me onto another date..... And they did :-) so try that, and see what they say. Try to make both if you can, by changing the date of one, is what I would recommend xx good luck

    Thanks. Unfortunately I cant go to both because it would mean flying back to London twice and I'm not at home for that long but I've decided to go to the St. Mary's interview as it was my first choice as well. I've been reading about what to expect on the day so I hope I can be prepared.

    Based on the info they have told us, we can only really brush up on maths and English for the tests they will give us. We don't know what 'on the day' tasks they might ask us, so I've prepared interview Q&As and going to read up on educational issues. What sort of issues are you covering?

    I've been offered an interview for a School Direct place, but all it says on UCAS is 'interview' and the date of the interview - there's nothing to click on to accept or confirm, no other details about the interview. It's in just over a week but obviously I want all the info as soon as possible!
    Should I expect a letter or email from the actual school with the details? Has anyone else been offered a School Direct interview and had this happen?

    Greenwich - so someone HAS heard from them. Is it primary or secondary?

    And what use is track?? It doesn't even register the one interview I was offered by email.

    The same. I'm just going to read up on current educational issues and the curriculum and relate it to my own experience. Good luck

    Just to say, I've got an interview but UCAS has not been updated, so so e university's May not update, so I'd watch for a letter in the post, so just because ucas does not say you have one does not mean you have not got one :-)
