    I am yes! I think I did well on the day, especially in group interview, but I was very very nervous in my individual. I did get to say lots of good things, I just hope they saw past interview nerves!

    I have to have a response by 14th Feb so hopefully won't have to wait too long!

    Don't worry about that. I was incredibly nervous in the group task; so much so that during my interview, the interviewer even mentioned that I was visibly nervous, but still said that I had given a great interview. Sometimes nerves don't hinder your performance, they just show how important the course obviously is to you; they appreciate that.

    If you are successful, send me a message, would be great to have someone to say Hi to on the first day! Fingers crossed!

    If you've had interviews you must have a strong application form. Have you asked for feedback from your interviews? Maybe see what they say and try work on that before any others.
    ya got feedback ,"your performance at interview in comparison with others fell below the required standard for entry to the programme , we are seeking applicants who can preform confidently at interview" . which ya i agree with , i know i was a too quite in one of the parts of the interview in uwe. and could improve since it was my first ever group interview. but if i did get invited to another interview the cost of flight and accommodation and missing time from collage is a big risk for a slight chance of improving.

    I hate group interviews! I always feel like I'm not saying enough. I guess you never know until you try though, maybe next time you'll get an offer then would it be worth it? With confidence I always find practice helps. Or just throwing myself into a situation that makes you nervous can help x

    Hi! I had my interview on Friday just gone and I am desperate to find out! They told us it should be early this week, when did you have yours? And how do you think it went?
    Hi, I had mine last Tuesday. They said we could be waiting up to 2 weeks as it is a busy time with deadlines and undergrad applications, hoping it's not too long! How did yours go?

    Has anyone had an interview for primary at Birmingham City Uni or Warwick Uni? Just wondering what you thought of the group task/discussion?
    Yes I had an interview at BCU two weeks ago. I really enjoyed it as it was very relaxed and was about a good subject. I suppose it helped that i was in a good group of people who seemed to like it too. Have you done it yourself yet? If you have not i would not worry about it at all.

    Ugh you wouldn't think many unis would leave their decision towards the end of when we are guaranteed to hear by, but mine is getting closer than I thought.

    No I haven't! I have it on Wednesday so a bit nervous! Just worried I won't have much to say on the topics they give us for the discussion. Were the topics quite straight forward?

    Anyone else who is going to Bath Spa, there is a Facebook page under Bath Spa Primary 2014-2015, thought it would be a good way to get to know each other before the course starts!
    Hey hllovt, I can't find it?!

    Hi friends.. M just wondering do we prepare a presentation only when we are asked to prepare over a topic or is it just we can do to show our skills or they expect one from us without them asking us to? What if we aren't told to prepare for a presentation??
    Please guide..

    So we might hear around same time then with us both being last weeks ! Oh really? They said hopefully early this week if they get it done over weekend. Wish they hadn't because I keep checking my emails every 5 mins lol! Yeh I think it went ok, I tried to be calm through my presentation and speak up during the group interviews. I'm slightly worried about the literacy paper, I think I rushed it what about yours? X

    is there only one topic for the whole group or does everyone get their own statement? was the topic quite straight forward/open?

    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?
    I ended up going through apply 2 and I've been given an interview which is awesome!

    Thanks
