    I got an offer for York St John Lower Primary - over the moon! It's my first choice so super pleased and excited And it was way quicker than expected...interview on Monday, offer on Thursday. They said it wouldn't be until January.

    Does anyone know what sort of things they check for in the medical check? Along with the DBS the medical is the only condition that I have for the offer, and I'm just curious.
    I've got an offer too

    I haven't heard anything from Hallam, so I'm guessing it will be January when I hear something now. Just got to try and forget about it for Christmas now!

    Congrats! Can I ask how you heard, was it through email or track? As I had an interview there the day before you on weds for biology but still haven't heard. And your post is making me think since they reply so quick maybe there's a rejection letter on it's way...

    The medical is literally just a form you fill out about you medical history and send to an occupational therapist. It's more to help you than anything.

    Ah thanks for letting me know. Yeah mine was on Tuesday too but for a different subject so it may be different.

    Maybe OFSTED reports, if you're talking about individual schools.

    Should be on here. Just search for the school you need.

    Hi everyone! I have my skills tests coming up in the next week and I was quite confident about passing them until I heard that the layout will be changing this year :afraid:. There isn't much information about it online so I'm pretty confused...:confused: Have they already brought in the new format or are the tests following the same layout as the previous years? Please tell me they're still the same!!! I have an interview at Brunel for PGCE secondary science in mid-January so I can't afford to fail these tests.

    No they're not changing. They're exactly the same as the practice ones!
    Good luck!

    I had an interview on the same day - what were you applying for? I heard back on wednesday, but reply time will differ substantially by department.

    They were going to make them more difficult, and change the format too, but ran out of time in the end. So they're exactly the same this year, but my bet is they will definitely change by the 2015 cycle.

    Newman College, Birmingham - Unsuccessful - What am I doing wrong?!! :confused:
    We can't really answer that without seeing your application, but could it be perhaps a lack of experience? Or maybe your degree isn't fully relevant to your chosen subject/the national curriculum? If you were rejected without interview, it's a problem with your application. If you got through to interview, than it will be an issue with interview skills (as not everyone is interviewed, it's safe to assume that your application was enough to at least be considered).

    Unsuccessful without interview for Nottingham Uni and a school direct through the Uni. I have an interview for my other choice (SD) in Jan so my application can't be that bad! I have a sneaking suspicion it's because my degree isn't History, does anyone know if I can contact the Uni to find out?
    You can send the admissions department an e-mail and they will let you know, but some universities can be helpful whilst others will just send a generic "high competition for places" e-mail.

    My offer gave me 6 work weeks to pass the test, which I think is pretty standard for IoE. Are you planning on accepting the place?
