    Rejected without interview from everywhere I applied, feel pretty crappy right now, not sure if it's even worth applying for apply 2.

    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
    I'm not doing my curriculum or school related at all. I think they are just looking for being able to stand up and speak to people too. It is vague but I guess it's a way to show what you're really interested in too. I've had interviews and where everyone is doing pretty much the same thing it gets boring. Good luck! What have you applied for? Mines next Thursday I've applied for upper primary.

    I'm very sorry to hear that! Did you get any feedback from any of the providers?

    I've applied for Primary with Maths specialism which is why I'm thinking of teaching a maths game as that's what I'm interested in. I could have taught Welsh but I didn't want to over complicate things Good luck with yours

    That sounds good! I think this is one of the hardest ones I've got. Where else have you applied?

    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 had my interview there in December and got an offer-I got my group making paper butterlies out of origami paper and pipe cleaners so it can be literally anything! doesnt have to be academic at all they were all so different. good luck!

    Really sorry to hear that! But it is worth applying through apply 2. What have you got to lose?

    I know some people who have interviews, but they're all at Hull for an undergrad degree in Education and they were told they were guaranteed an interview.
    Thankyou! I've just heard I've got an interview at Hull Uni on 22nd Jan.

    Don't give up. Can you get in touch with your choices to see why they rejected you? Put in the work in the next few months and see what happens in Apply 2 or even next year?

    That's great well done! Hopefully I can say the same in a couple of weeks time, how long did it take them to get back to you?
    And thanks a lot for that, i wasn't sure whether it had to be a curriculum subject! I got my degree in psychology so I think I'm going to come up with something fun/educational psychology wise.
    How long was the individual interview and can you remember what they asked you?

    Hi, I had the email about a week ago and my interview is next Friday. I've only heard back from one of my choices so far so don't worry and yeh you can change date if you need to! For my interview at lincoln there is a individual interview, group task and we have to give a presentation to the other candidates! Scary stuff!!
