    Hey,

    I've just been offered a room in halls. Linden 209. Has anyone else got their offer yet?

    Your first placement can be at any school in England.

    Best wishes,

    Laura
    Hi Laura! I have been offered halls too! Mine is Room 211.

    Hi guys!

    I have been offered room 214 so SamLi I imagine we are definitely in the same flat, at least that's how uni accommodation numbers work.

    Laura, I imagine we will be on the same floor as you if not the same flat!

    Edit: We move in on the 1st which is a Sunday and start on the 2nd. Would have been nice to have had the full.weekend though!

    Hi!

    Umm I don't really have any tips related to languages but if you do have a group presentation always put yourself forward to go first. It shows confidence! I was pretty nervous for my interview and I just bit the bullet and went first now I have a place
    Sorry that I haven't really given you much help!

    Good luck with your interview! hopefully you will be here at September. Xx

    You should have received an email about it. If not then I would ring their accommodation department and ask about it as you only have a week to accept the offer.

    How has everyone found getting the Alternative Placements and Observational Placements?

    The Alternative Placement I have got is at a charity and wasn't too hard to get but I found securing the observation a nightmare, only.just finalised it today.

    I have also got my alternative placement. I haven't got my observational placement yet. Did you get yours near the uni? Starting to really panic!

    Yeah I got it pretty close to the university, about a 15 minute bus ride according to Google Maps.

    I would advise to keep on at them. I sent a ton of emails and personalised letters to the heads of about 30-40 local schools a few weeks ago and heard nothing back. A few days ago I went through my list and rang them all up, some had filled up and others told me to email...again.

    I'm currently doing my alternative placement. It was fairly simple to organise once you know what sort of environment you want to be in. I've also sorted my observation as well.

    How's everyone getting on with the ore course material? I'm hoping to persuade my friends and family to buy me books off my amazon wish list for my birthday so I don't have to fork out so much for them!

    My interview was Wednesday 15th May. Was anyone else there that day?

    Looking forward to meeting everyone in September. It's getting close now!

    I have read and made notes on half of the reading and writing under control books and plan to move on to maths sometime this month. Finally, I will brush up on my science with the subject knowledge book.

    What did you take to be the core texts? I went and bought 11 of them, although only ones concerning English, Maths and Science. Wasn't cheap!

    I have only purchased my books! I had to wait till I got paid, but I only purchased four books. Two which was the maths that they said we had to buy and i got one science and another book about teaching in a primary school. I also have been to the library to borrow a few of the children books. I thought I'll buy four first before I buy the others.

    Mikey, what english book did you get?

    My interview was on the 13th of Feb.
