    Thanks, I'll try to pretend to myself I'm just chatting with friends, and hopefully I will chat more. Actually I'm just going to convince myself n the mean time that my application form was so good that I won't even need an interview. They'll just send an offer through.

    I just got a phone call to tell me that I got a School Direct salaried role at an amazing school near me! Soooooo chuffed! So there is hope for us 'oldies' yet!

    And well done!

    Ahhhh I've just been given an offer from London Met after being rejected by Canterbury!!!

    Does anyone know anything about funding/bursaries for a PGCE in Citizenship?
    No bursary but you're entitled to the full student loans/grants.

    Ah thanks, and best of luck too! It's horrible waiting to hear back isn't it? I only had to wait one day but I was refreshing Track every few minutes! Track still hasn't updated though so I've not officially been able to accept the offer.

    Had first interview yesterday at University of Nottingham for Secondary History. Think it went okay...just difficult when interviewers are stone cold faced throughout. Not sure if that's good or bad haha.

    Anyone else feel low/down a few hours after their interview? I felt emotionally, mentally drained and didn't know what to do!

    Hi all. In your applications, did you enter the details of your school and college or just the qualifications obtained?

    I had the same thing yesterday. One of the interviewers didn't crack a smile the whole day and I was convinced he wasn't impressed with me at all...and then today I got an offer! I guess some people don't give a lot away, but that doesn't mean they're not impressed with you, they're probably like that will all the applicants. Did they give you an indication of when you're likely to hear back?

    Well done!! Within the week...trying not to think about it because I get frustrated with myself about 'what I could have done better' haha.

    Hi, I haven't even been offered an interview from BGU yet.. I didn't send my application off until the 5th December, was hoping I would have heard from them by now though. Are you applying for secondary or primary? The waiting to hear is the worst part isn't it!!!
    Oh I see-hope you get your interview! I've applied for lower primary, seriously have been checking my track every hour in work today hoping they would have made their decision but they haven't. let me know if you get an interview I can give you a heads up on how the day went for me

    Yep that's me right now! Keep thinking if everything I said that was wrong and you feel totally drained. I haven't been able to relax yet, I still feel on edge!


    Btw, how many people have been in your groups at interview everyone? There was only three people there today, including me! I was expecting maybe about ten.
