    Hi I'm in my 2nd year at Derby so I remember how you feel! Just remember to speak up - they want to see you joining in the discussions and putting your ideas across. But at the same time don't dominate the discussion either!

    When being asked similar questions, try and give a different answer and make sure your research is up to date - look at the latest news on Education/TES/National Curriculum.

    Any other questions just ask! Good luck!

    Had my interview at Derby yesterday morning, wow how friendly are they! Really hope I get on to the PGCE course, spoke quite a bit in the discussion, whenever there was a slight pause and I could get in, I just hope it was enough

    How is the course laid out in terms of lectures and placements.
    Also what should I expect the numeracy and literacy tests to be like.

    You can expect a pretty full timetable - a lot more time spent in Uni than other courses. Usually averaging 3 full days (sometimes with free sessions in between) and a half day actually at uni.

    You'll do about 9 weeks of placement a year (November, Jan-Mar, and in your 1st year you go back in May too).
    All first years have their placement in EYFS classes, then you'll be given two different placements (probably KS1 and KS2) for your second and third year.

    The tests have changed a lot since I started so probably best to look through old threads similar to this one!
