    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?
    Ah cool Oh okay, not just me who hasn't done the skills test yet then! Yeah I am going to book somewhere, would be too stressful otherwise I think Oh well done on your Oxford Brookes interview! I haven't heard from either of my other choices yet I am at the University of Bath at the moment - I am doing a bit of a random course though, it's social sciences so a mix of sociology, psychology, politics and education. I would have applied for a PGCE here but they don't do them :'( I've been having a think about interview clothes! Ahh, been two years since I've had an interview so need to buy some new clothes I think. Also... have no idea what to put on the 'personal statement' bit of the college application form - is it just a list of hobbies or should it be continuous prose explaining them and why you do them?

    Thank you! :-) don't feel quite so nervous now! I was given the 'thinking about thinking' article.
    Oh I have been given the same article! Have you applied for primary or early years. I applied for early years so thought it might be specific to that. It looks quite interesting but I haven't read all of it yet

    Oh really? Gosh!! I guess I should have expected that considering how small the group was...

    My interview with her was fine. Managed to get a lot of points in and it was pretty informal. Overall I'm happy with how it all went...now just have to wait and see!

    I have an interview next week and one of the things I have to bring is a reference of working with children, my placement school can't give me this in time for my interview, do you think I will be okay if I explain that I can get this at a later date?

    No problem that's the one we were all given too, the question they ask is a tad random but it's fine, very doable! Good luck with your interview

    How important is it to have a national curriculum degree or national curriculum a levels for a primary pgce? I'm considering applying next year but don't have either
    Don't worry too much about that. I don't have a-levels at all and my degree is not a national curriculum subject and I got 2 out of 3 interviews this year.

    I have been offered both Glasgow Uni. and Strathclyde PGDE Primary. I'm undecided on which one to go for. Anyone in a similar boat? Or have any advice?

    Yeah yeah...mine just felt like a chat really...i spent ages talking to her about some of the new curriculum and my opinions on it...still quite shocked when the guy said it was 37 places for like 220 interviewees!!
