    What sort of stuff are you revising for the maths and english tests?
    Sorry for late reply. I have an interview for Primary tomorrow. What about you? I have just been going through some of the practice numeracy and literacy online tests and refreshing myself on percentages/decimals/fractions. What other preparation have you done? x

    Got an interview this Friday and next Monday, I was just wondering what people wore (trivial issues haha)

    I am applying for early years, I want to be comfortable and I have to do a task with year 2 children.

    Do you think a just above knee length black dress with a blue print, thick tights, black flats, black blazer would be ok? Or should I stick to shirt and trousers, I just feel so uncomfy and awkward in trousers, I never wear them!
    Yep that sounds fine to me. I pretty much wore the same thing (minus the blazer) and I was still the smartest person at the interview. Quite shocking what some people consider appropriate for a job interview!

    Hi,

    What happens once we accept an offer on ucas? I presume I would receive a welcome letter from the uni. I accepted the offer on the 24th Dec, but I haven't heard anything.

    Also ive passed both of my skills test, which where part of the conditions. Would they automatically know or would I need to contact them?

    Thanks in advance
    Bear in mind that most universities wouldn't have been working over the Christmas period and probably only went back in to work yesterday. It took over a week for my confirmation to come through so no need to panic!

    I'm not too sure about the skills tests. A lot of people on here have been asking the same thing. Personally I emailed my course provider to tell them I'd passed (even though they took copies of my test results at the interview) but I assume they have a way to check themselves anyway.

    Hello!

    Has anyone had interviews secondary MFL yet, if so, what were they like? Any tips or advice? Could I possibly PM you (I am not sure how much we can say because of the 'NOT FOR SPECIFIC INTERVIEW TASK INSTRUCTIONS')?

    I have one this week (on Thursday!) and another sometime in the next two weeks (they gave me a day which I stated I would be unable to attend so I have contacted them, hopefully the day can be changed).

    I have received an email saying that there will be a numeracy exercise based on the TA’s Numeracy Skills Test... any tips on what to revise or where I can find information? My maths isn't *too* bad but if there's things like algebra or equations I'd probably fail !

    Hi, I have my interview for bishop grosseteste next Friday in the morning. Is anyone else there too? I'm really worried about the presentation, I think it's so vague.. Teach on something you feel confident in? Is that teaching a subject like literacy or numeracy or a talking about an issue in the classroom?
    Soo nervous not enough time to prepare!!! X

    I know I have done hardly any prep today so far I did a lot yesterday luckily. I can't see much getting done today, I can hardly keep my eyes open. Not in a tired way, I just feel really drained. Majorly need to plan my presentation today though!

    Good luck tomorrow. Where is at?
    Yeah same! I think we are probably drained. I was up quite late last night preparing too. Mine is for Primary at St. Mary's in Twickenham. What about yours? Good luck for it - let's hope we find some energy from somewhere! X

    Hi, I have mine this Friday and I totally agree with you that the info given is so vague! I've decided to teach something maths related as thats what I've applied to specialise in. I thought we'd get some more info sent to us but haven't received anything. I think they just want to see our ability to teach x

    Seems to be really popular there, I keep hearing the name! Mine is at Cumbria Uni. It's 10-4.30 but until 1pm it's just talks on the skills tests and course and stuff. I sort of wish we could just go and get it over with rather than sitting listening to stuff I've read about, but oh well! Might calm my nerves.

    Let us know how you get on tomorrow

    It's pretty strange, I have friends who are at BishopGro PGCE at the moment and last year their presentation was on a class they had been in that was 'particularly effective'.. That would be perfect, but this..? I don't know whether we are meant to act as if we are teaching a subject to adults, or KS1s?? I'm dreading it, more so than the individual interview.
    Well good luck and please let me know how you get on ) xxx

    I know! Mine is 9.30am - 4pm - seems so long especially as the 1-1 interview is right at the end of the day lol.

    I think St. Mary's has a good reputation as both their Primary and Secondary have been given outstanding by Ofsted.

    Which means I probably don't have a hope in hell of getting on a course, but I will try my best!

    I will let you know - let me know how you get on too x

    Thank you I will I've looked at other universities that have asked for the same thing and the feedback from them all seemed to be that they just wanted to look at your teaching ability so I guess we teach the audience we have. xx

    Bit of a long shot but if Sarah from the Chichester interview yesterday sees this did you get it?!

    Good luck everyone still with interviews - do not worry - they do make you feel really relaxed and it's quite informal. For Primary languages we had a casual chat in Spanish then a group exercise saying how you would teach with 2 leaves but we had the curriculum in front of us and for most objects you can come up with ideas for all subjects x
