I called the School Experience Programme to arrange observations in schools today but they said because I'm not in the UK, I have to wait until I'm there in person to arrange it. Hope this isn't too late!
Hi Jess,

That just isn't true!

I am currently in Barcelona and I arranged about three days of school experience, not by phoning, but through the website:

https://getintoteaching.education.go...ool-experience

I just put my Mum's address (as I have done on my application) because I am only in Barcelona temporarily.

I organised my other school experienced days by contacting schools directly.

If you don't ask you don't get!

Martyn

One of my references is done, just the other one to go and then I can send it of! I'm terrified!

I am stuck on Education page. Can anyone tell me how will I know the "Time spent/credits" for all my degree subjects? My degree was four year long and it is from outside UK.

When you got your degree you should have recieved the degree certificate and a breakdown of all your units and the credits for each (I can't remember what its called). Well that is for degree's in the UK I hope this is the same for yours.

If you can you may want to email the course provider and ask them.

I studied abroad as well and I had to contact my university to get a transcript with all the modules and credits.

BTW: Don't you need to have your degree compared through NARIC? They ask for the transcricpt too.

That's because you can only have 80 characters (including spaces) in each line

Thanks Martyn!

I've already looked at this page but can't seem to find how to get from this to actually arranging it! I've already entered my details so could you tell me please where do I go from the page you sent me?

Yes, I remember going round and round on that website and never getting anywhere, so had to give up after a number of attempts.

Hi Jess, Hi MPagtches...oh dear...I just logged into the website and see they have changed it all. Now I can't find the school exprience bit!!

Sorry

Maybe worth calling them and asking how you do it online? Or just call them and give your parent's address if possible?

What subject are you guys applying for? (I hope I haven't asked either of you that already...!)

So I'm nearly there with sending my requests to my references but the only thing holding me back is my personal statement.
I was wondering would I be able to just *check* my personal statement as 'done' so i can send the request to my referees and then come back and edit my statement? Or am i just being crazy?

Hi Sarah, once you've sent through your reference requests I think it locks most parts of your application so I don't think you can do that...

You can only change your choices and your referees.

If memory serves you are correct.

Sarah I would advise taking as much time as you need on your personal statement, it is so very important. It is your way to sell yourself to providers.

I have 3 weeks before my skills tests.

Hopefully my other reference can do their end in time so I don't have to rearrange them.

I've signed up to Numeracy Ready because I know that that's going to be the harder one for me. I've been getting pass marks, but only by about 2 marks so I definitely need to improve. A lot of it is just because I'm rusty (I got a good maths GCSE; did a statistics GCSE too; did maths AS including statistics 1; and did Biology A level which has a fair bit of statistics in) so for a humanities student I'm in an okay position really!

I've also signed up to Steve's Learning for the literacy test. It's free and has loads of resources so definitely check that out if any of you are feeling unsure with the literacy side of things! I did the first of the practice tests on the skills test website and did get a pass mark (yay Latin for helping my spelling) but it's still not as comfortable as I'd like. The comprehension in particular because it was so boring.
