    I'm thinking of applying to Reading university next year, but one of the requirements is a C or above in GCSE French. I'm interested in Primary (Early Years) but wondered if anyone had applied & didn't have this? Thanks.

    Hi i was just wondering if anyone could help me? For the five minute lessons are you aiming to teach your peers or prepare it as if it was for primary-aged children? because i'm really confused. Like i don't want it to be too easy or anything. Any advice would be much appreciated!

    No it's at Bishop Grosstesste, Lincoln. I had mine at Derby the week before christmas, i was really terrified at the beginning but the staff really put you at ease and you're in small groups for the interview.

    I still haven't heard back, absolutely excruciating haha! The maths and English tests were fine, maybe do a little revision. But easier than the skills tests if you've done those. Good luck, it was a really relaxed day there and the staff were great

    I have a place for primary at Reading and I have Spanish at GCSE not French if that helps.

    Hi,

    To my knowledge you only need a C in French if you are taking the specialism with French.

    If you are doing early years, a C is favourable however not required.

    I think they asked for me to take the certificate to the interview to show I had it, I assumed it was for the French speciality but they looked at it anyway

    Sorry it does look like you need the C in language, I don't think this was always the case. See image attached.

    Definitely best to call up I think. Best of luck.

    Hello both, I had my interview at Bishop Grotts yesterday and we all taught each other rather than pretending we were teaching primary school children. The staff are all really lovely at the uni and you can literally teach anything. They're not trying to catch you out they just want to see your ability. The range of things you'll get taught by others is great too. I really enjoyed myself, which I never thought I'd say after an interview. Good luck to you both

    Hello, glad your interview went well! Thank you for the advice! How did you find the group interview? Not do a group one before, the others have been 1:1 so feeling a bit nervous about the group aspect! Hope you hear back from them with a decision soon!
