    Hi. Yeah I think they can do that. I guess if you didn't accept them straight away they could argue you weren't intending them to be your first choice. It's just because in previous years you've had to order choices but we didn't need to this year so they are giving out more places than they have x

    Is there a way you to check to see if your provider still has spaces available?
    Technically if they are still showing vacancies on UCAS then they should consider your application but it might be better to give them a call and check just to be safe as you don't want your application to be stuck while they are interviewing other people and effectively ignoring yours, if it came in after the interview dates were set.

    What!!!! i thought once you had an offer you were guaranteed an offer until 10 days after your final decision - I don't think they can take them away...??
    On my offer letter it says they would like you to accept it as soon as possible but you are under no obligation to do so until the UCAS deadline...?

    I'm not certain but obviously oeople will have their interviews at different times so will accept at different times. If people accept places before you and the uni runs out of places what can they do. X

    I firmed a good few weeks ago! My interview was on the 14th January, when was yours? I have done my skills test but haven't graduated yet so have a condition of obtaining at least a 2:1.

    I am in apply 2 and had over 2 weeks before my interview, but it depends on the university and how many people they like to interview as well.

    Worcester interview didn't go fantastically. I fought my corner, but the head interviewer didn't like that I had little formal experience. Which begs the question, why interview me? But ah well. I'd rather get it over and done with and be rejected by all three now to be honest.

    Can anyone give me their impression on the audit that this school has sent me? You have to grade the first column from 1-5 based on competency, I understand that. But the remaining columns say both 'grade' and 'discuss' - am I supposed to be giving full answers here? Just the number score? Bullet point responses? Some of the answers will surely be incredibly short, with not that much to say considering there are about 8 of these pages (!!! they only sent this to me on Sunday... interview is on Thursday. -_-) whilst others could be really long. Anyone have their interpretation of what exactly is expected? I'm sure I'll just end up grading each one and adding a sentence or two where I can... hmm. =/

    Well you got an interview in the first place so they can't have been that upset with your lack of experience or you would have got a straight rejection. Do you have the minimum of two weeks? If you did well on the rest of the interview day then you've got every chance of getting a place...it just might be conditional on you getting more experience before the start of the PGCE.
