    Hi there,

    I'm lucky enough to have been offered places at both Worcester and BCU for the primary PGCE and I really don't know who to choose.. Just wondered if there was anybody who could offer some advice.
    My heart was set on Worcester at first but since my interview at BCU I have been really torn between them!

    I've firmed my offer from BCU primary, the teaching staff seemed really friendly and my friend is on the course now there and she loves it

    You've got to take in consideration what is best for you, next year is going to be so much work and full of stress, take in consideration travel to and from uni, travel from placement and things like that

    Ah brilliant! I know somebody on the course now too and they love it. I've also got a friend at worcs who recommends their course!
    I know, I'm trying to think of everything. The journey to BCU is just worse due to traffic in the mornings compared with Worcester but I feel I want to be based in Birmingham when I qualify.
    Do you know whether the course looks into SEN much at BCU? As I'm really interested in that

    Really!! I just found on the website that one module is Primary Focus so I assume that's where we choose a specialism that was the only thing that was really swaying it for me because Worcester have a strong focus on SEN. I think BCU is my choice then.. Eeeek! I'm excited too, when was your interview? Mine was last Wednesday

    Yup, Primary Focus is what its called! Maybe give BCU a ring just to make sure they do offer it, but thats what my interviewer told me. I'd hate for you to accept the offer, then come september find out you can't do the focus in SEN!

    Mine was the 8th of Jan, so I think it was one of the first round! How many people got sent home after the lunch break?

    Yes the man came in after lunch and said I'm afraid several of you haven't made it through to the next stage and then a lady holding a clipboard said, sorry to do this to you and read out the names. It was horrible, the four of them just got up and left. It could've been done in a much better way so that none of us knew about it!
