    So my manager said she did my reference yesterday but it hasn't come through as complete (or even accepted) on ucas. Could this be because it is the weekend or should I be concerned??
    I didn't think weekend would make a difference. My timing was the same as yours with references. My second reference did mine on a Friday night and I got the e-mail straight away, so paid and sent on the night. I'd look into it if I were you. If you log in does it still say she hasn't completed it? You may want to ask her to check (I know it involves another nag but there must be something wrong...).

    Yeah I figured there must be an issue. It still says it hasn't been sent. I have asked her if she sent it off but had no reply yet. :-/ She won't be able to check until Monday. Just hoping it will all be figured out then! So stressed right now!

    Ahh that must be annoying . Oh well don't worry, I see no reason she can't check and you can get it all done and dusted on Monday!

    Yeah I am feeling okay about that, the timing is just so frustrating. Seems like one thing after another and I just want it to be in the hands of the unis now!

    I feel like I am driving myself mad! Possibly going into too much depth...I do not have a degree in english, but am researching phomemes, graphemes etc and was planning to be able to identify what stages ks1 should be at in depth in all subjects at the end of ks1. Basically almost memorising the statutory requirments, for fear I will be asked in depth about curriculum...tell me am I going too far?! How did you find the Roehampton interview before? Is the interview interrogation style? I fear I over think things!! I am using a prop based around a lesson I carried out on placement which I considered somewhat successful :O It's my first time to interview for PGCE so I really have no idea what to expect!!! Best of luck to you too
    How did you find your interview at Roehampton? I have one in a weeks time.

    Oh gosh, I know...me + maths + speed = disaster!!! at least we're not alone! No, mine's on the 17th, it seems as if St. Mary's are doing a lot of interviews!

    I've gotten an interview for Cambridge on the 7th of January and I'm still waiting to hear back from Greenwich, I've applied for primary with science there! Where else have you applied?

    I've applied for St Marys, Roehampton and a School Direct salaried. My interviews are next week, 11th, 18th Dec and 24th January, lots of preparation ahead of me!!!! It sounds like you've already got them over and done with, so can focus of skills practice, jealous!!

    Well I worked between 2009 when I graduated for two different companies, in fairly corporate type roles you see, and they need 3 years work experience, I really liked the school and quite hands out type person when it comes to learning, plus the salary helps! I Def would miss the money whilst going back to full time education if I only get on the PGCE though!!

    Are you passing the practice tests online? I literally keep practicing and practicing on this maths app I got for my phone!! God what's our luck, we get there on Wednesday and it's just adding up and application of formulas on the help sheet they give you?!!? Haha

    Thanks for the tips Sof!

    Jo_Marie thats exactly what i'm worried about! The tests online scared me so much I rescheduled my maths test! I'm very slow with my maths. Oh Gosh i'm so nervous! At least we know lots of us feel the same way so thats something. Plus they will know we're nervous. Good luck with all three of your interviews! The school direct one would be great if its salaried! You must have lots of experience then?

    Anyone heard from Cumbria? They are the last choice I'm waiting on now.
    School-direct option?

    Ah ok, thanks. I've applied at Lancaster too, but for secondary R.E. I guess I will just have to wait and see!

    I've seen it actually because they also have some details on time scales for deciding interviews, so I came across it via that. Very useful, although if I get an interview there it sounds like it would be the hardest out of the three for me!

    Thanks

    It does look more challenging than the guidance for my other choice Durham, but luckily some of the mini teach options are very similar to topics I have led in school! And your welcome

    Hi

    Just wondered if anyone had heard back from Strathclyde about an interview? I have applied for Biology with Science but not heard anything :/

    They have said no to my application for Maths.

    On the plus side i got an interview for Glasgow for Biology on the 17th
    Good luck at Glasgow! How quickly was it from submitting your application to getting your rejection from Strathclyde? Been nearly a week for me and I've had nothing. I'm applying for Secondary English.

    Glasgow uni has emailed me to ask for my SQA results and uni transcript but as I'm moving house my SQA stuff is in storage so I don't know if I'll get it to them quickly enough for interview.
