    I know my second choice is full already it's so unfair them keeping us waiting all this time.

    They said that the earlier you got your application in the better, so I did mine quickly and got it in for October, but it's not the earlier the better cos I am at no more an advantage to those that did in January. It's just so unfair!!!!!

    And if they can change the "deadline" who's to say they won't put it back even longer. Whats the point having a deadline if you can change it...

    I keep checking gttr every hour like a crazy person and can't concentrate on anything else!! I just hope that we do hear this week or monday like people have been saying...

    Is it because the government have not given them their allocation?

    They got the allocations on the 31st January - so it says on the TDA website.

    Surely if they have most of the applicants already sorted into 4 piles for 'definitely', 'definitely not' etc.. then they can start to let some of us know by now, even if they still have interviews today and tomorrow?

    Surely they cannot take until the 28th to do that

    My friend, who is also waiting and will be reading this:ciao: , rang today and was told that they were starting to upload on to the Gttr today as all interviews
    had now taken place the woman she spoke ro reckoned that we should find out either tomorrow or Monday so fingers crossed.

    All in all though I do think the whole thing could have been handled a lot better, if I dont get a place at Trent I think I will be too late to apply to my choice and as they only have 30 places I would imagine they are full! Looks like it'll be another year of working form me if I dont get it sooooo frustrating!

    Where have you found the number 30? The allocations I read stated they still had postgrad numbers of 60 and more spaces for undergrads. The numbers have increased for Trent not decreased...

    Sorry to confuse I meant 30 at second choice which is a flexi PGCE and runs over 3, 4, 5 or 6 terms and has a start date of April x

    I can't believe GTTR have changed the deadline date again. Starting to get really annoyed with all this now.

    When I phoned yesterday I was told quite authoritatively that they would be up 'for Monday' and when I pressed him the guy seemed to suggest that they would be up ON Monday for us to see. So I'll be checking tomorrow but I'm not gonna get my hopes up til Monday!

    And I THINK the 'stop' decision will stop our applications being withdrawn automatically, it is only if there is literally nothing on the decision (no 'interview', 'offer,' 'rejection' or 'stop') that the GTTR can automatically withdraw it I think... Can't believe they've extended the deadline thoush that is literally taking the mickey (restained language use ;-))

    I'm just wondering if they upload them all then kind of send them 'live' when they've done them, so everyone would hear at the same time ie. Monday...? but I'm just guessing as I havn't heard of anyone getting any news today...

    You'd know if I'd heard!! LOL!
    I think it will be Monday now especially as Gttr site is down for most of saturday.
    On another note how are people checking if their next choice is full?
