    For Harvard you should use page numbers in text, unless you're referring to the whole text in general in which case you don't need them anywhere.

    Cite them right is a book by palgrave which I've found invaluable when it comes to referencing. Many unis have it as a core text and use it for all their standards of marking referencing.

    It is annoying that you were told wrong and it definitely shouldn't have happened. I'd consider challenging it if it were undergrad, but since you got 61 on a pgce I'd probably not bother!

    I've looked up cite it right this evening actually. We have online access. Very useful!

    I've never had problems with referencing at undergrad. I used harvard and always put page numbers. I'd probably have failed my essays at undergrad with no page numbers! When I came to my pgce uni and my tutor said page numbers weren't needed I was thrilled! That is what takes me the time. It did seem too good to be true. I am annoyed that we were told wrong, and like you said, ar undergrad I'd have complained. I'm fine with my mark though.

    Sadly, I'd submitted an essay this afternoon, one hour before I got my feedback. No page numbers. Oh well, I'm not blaming myself for that.

    All this talk of people working hard etc. sort of makes me feel guilty for my half term week spent doing nothing. I handed in a 5,000 word essay the week before and don't have another due until after christmas and don't start my second placement until Monday so I've been using the time to lie-in, catch up with friends and generally relaxed. I'm sure next week will come as a bit of a shock to the system!

    I'm off to an inner-city all-girls comprehensive with behavioural problems, coming from an all-boys grammar where behaviour wasn't much of an issue, so I'm expecting it to be a challenge at first. Not looking forward to the all girls side of things as I'm a 22 year old guy who looks about 12, so I'm expecting to have to fight for respect quite a lot. I'm looking forward to it, but only because I know if I hate it I only have 3 months to get through...

    Never feel guilty for not doing work. I'm an NQT and I've done work only on 2 days of the half term. Refuse to spend any more of my time thinking about school! You need the break!

    I'm sort of the same. I spent two days on an essay and apart from that nothing. I think it's because I start my placement on Monday too. We haven't got marking and lessons to plan over half term!

    Enjoy it - it is the calm before the storm.

    I've been exactly the same. Two days of essay writing but nothing else. I've been out on my boat today instead of writing lesson plans. Oops!

    I am so glad to hear this!!!! How do you feel?

    I have been having such a good time this placement (so far, knock on wood!). I have actually felt like a proper teacher. Desperate to get a job and get my own room and things.

    Only issue is now that I know how to start her up and take her out, it's all I want to do. Don't think I'll get much work done trundling around on the boat tbh!

    I'm so glad to hear that they got things sorted for you! I know it's hard but try and stay positive and hopefully it'll all go okay from here. As long as you can get your hours, half the battle is won.

    It is terrifying how quickly it's going. I start my research dissertation for my next block of placement and I'm just worried that the weeks fly by a little too quickly. Probably a sign of how much I enjoy being at school, but not necessarily useful when having to juggle uni stuff in there too.

    I've done 4 at mine but with occasional uni days thrown in. From tomorrow I think I only have 4 more uni days before the end of placement. I feel really settled here and I absolutely love teaching but I can definitely see why they say the PGCE is stressful now. It's not that it's all big stuff, it's just juggling so many little things that makes it difficult.

    I start my second placement tomorrow. Really nervous! I found first placement difficult, but I'm worried that the second is a massive step up and I don't think I'll be able to make the jump :/

    I'm starting to stress out that I don't even have an interview yet :O I only submitted my application just over a month ago, yet it still says awaiting references. Am I right to assume they won't offer me an interview until they receive those references? and then what happens if the tutors I'm waiting on - from my old Uni decide to take ages or not even do them :confused:

    Your entire application only goes through once your references have been completed, so the uni wouldn't have even seen your application. You need to get on to your references asap.
