    Thank you...well done on your interview I'm not really sure how much I'm allowed to say on here but I'll do my best to help you and not break any rules!

    The group activities are nothing to worry about, they're quite engaging and dare I say enjoyable just make sure you speak enough but not too much...balance! What article were you given to read? The individual interview was quite intense for me...I gave my presentation about reading so they pushed me with questions about a subject I didn't have much experience with! Don't worry about this as they just want to see that you can give an intelligent and honest answer! They engage with you a lot which is good as you don't feel as if you are talking to yourself. It is an intense couple of hours but overall enjoyable relaxed as the interviewers are so nice, there will be 4-5 of them there on the day!

    I'm not sure how much this helps, I hope it does
    Thank you! :-) don't feel quite so nervous now! I was given the 'thinking about thinking' article.

    Mines on Friday the 24th! Same! Really unsure about what I am going to do for the presentation and how much preparation I need to do for the article! But I have an exam Friday and essay Monday so won't really be looking at it until after then. Have you taken your skills test yet? I won't have done mine, have them booked for the 27th/28th so hope it doesn't go against me! Can I ask what university you attend at the moment - I'm imagining it being me and loads of current Cambridge students! I also have no idea how I am getting there as my interview starts at 9am and I am coming from Southampton and there is no train that will get me there on time so might have to spend the night before in Cambridge!
    I think that will be fine, you still have a few days to prepare which should be okay. I haven't taken my skills tests yet, I've got mine on the 27th and 29th. I don't think it will go against us. I had university exams so would have been a nightmare preparing for those and my uni exams! I attend Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge which hasn't got a very good rep so I wouldn't worry. Just remember they chose us for a reason :-) Yeah if I were you'd I'd stay overnight just to be sure. I have an interview with Oxford Brookes on the 24th and I'm staying overnight. You never know what traffic will be like, etc. What uni are you studying at?

    Hey, Has anyone had/got interviews for University of Worcester and Birmingham City University? For Primary PGCE. .
    How long after you applied did you get your interview request? I have had nothing but a 'Thanks for applying' email...


    Also, has anyone heard anything back from Wolverhampton Uni? They requested more information about my work experience but nothing else since...

    It isn't at all! I have a levels in IT and Business and a degree in Marketing!

    It becomes relevant when your applying for Secondary, but not Primary.

    That's ok! You'll have to relate your degree to the national curriculum at interview stage and things like that, but you've got a while to think about that

    My degree is Criminology and Sociology, and a fair few of my Sociology modules can be related so hopefully I'll be able to relate it all okay. Thanks for the info again
