    Hi - have you managed to get something booked in? Maths isn't my favourite either so I checked out GCSE bite size on the BBC website to brush up my skills, did all the practice tests until I was blue in the face, and watched loads of You Tube clips for tips on doing the calculations quickly.
    Try not to let nerves get the better of you - take a few moments to calm yourself before you hit the 'start' button and make sure you're ready with the pen and paper when the mental arithmetic questions start.
    Good luck!

    Hi everyone
    Is there a FB group for Worcester PGCE Primary? I've searched but can't see anything.
    Thanks 😊

    They don't give you a lot of space so mine is mainly bullet points but saying that pretty wordy bullet points. I wasn't really sure either.

    Hi everyone!

    I am excited [and nervous] to be starting the Early Years PGCE in September!
    Unfortunately, I was in Spain for the induction day, although I was sent correspondence via email - did anyone on here go? Was it useful?
    Also, has anyone been told their placements? Starting to panic slightly ;-[

    Hi Melly!

    I'm doing 5-11 not early years but I was there at the induction day. If you have been sent an email you probably have most of the information anyway. Did they send you the induction pack with the pre-course activities and reading? Most of the information is in there. It was nice to meet other people and we did a couple of workshops too but I think the main induction will be when we start in September so I wouldn't worry As far as I know nobody has been told their definite placements yet so we're all on the same page. Have you filled in your pen portrait form yet? xx

    Hi Leanne Elizabeth!

    I now have this information thank you. A lovely bedtime read ;-]
    Oh that is good, I wish I could have come and met everyone, but as you say there is always September.
    Apparently, we will not be told our placements until September looking from past reponses on here, but this may have changed.
    Yes, I have filled in my Pen portrait, just got to check through and send. Hopefully I can get this done tomorrow. Have you done yours?

    That's good I am in the process of filling in my pen portrait now. A couple of the sections seem to overlap and I'm not sure what to put in all of them. Were you able to write something for all of them?

    I thought exactly the same! I did write in all sections but I have repeated several times ;-/ I took a lot of mine from my CV i.e. dates/skills/attributes etc

    Hope you get it sorted

    Hi,
    I was unfortunately away too for the induction. I have got the induction pack and have made a start to the starter activities
    But what is the pen portrait and where do I get it from?
    Thanks

    Hi Kayleigh,

    It's a form we need to fill out. It's like a CV - work experiences, voluntary experiences, qualifications, degrees, attributes and skills etc. This was sent to me via email at the beginning of the holidays by Gemma Davies. I think it needs to be finished by September, but I'm not totally sure of the exact date.

    Hi
    Don't worry too much - we'll all be in much the same boat! I'm sure it won't take long for us all to settle in and make friends.

    If you are on Facebook there is a Worcester PGCE 2015 Group which you could join, if you haven't already.

    See you soon! 😊
