    A lot of us have got to know each other over the past few months and have been wondering how old everyone is?

    I'm 28 (also my name is Kai and not Lambert)
    I'm 31, my name's Rhian!

    So looking back on all my practice tests - I've got above the pass mark (it's 63% right?), it seems my area to improve on is punctuation (of all sections!) anyone got any online thing to read up on punctuation for tonight please that will help me?
    Just put in every piece you think could need to be there... I think I changed 23 things in mine!! You aren't penalised for putting punctuation in that 'shouldn't' be there..

    For Southampton, I had to call up. If you have written on your application that you have a long term health condition (mine was type 1 diabetes) for some reason their system flags it up! Give them a call - I had my interview last tuesday, I called up on Friday and they updated UCAS 10 minutes after the phone call saying I had been successful!

    I have also applieid to Reading, I got an email on the day after I applied to UCAS asking me when I expected my module results. Have not heard anything since!

    Anyone have any hints for educational issues particularly aimed at secondary? I was thinking about discussing the obvious teacher shortage, as this is being covered a lot particularly recently regarding employment of international teachers to fill the gaps and 'bidding wars' between schools for the best teachers. With the aim to discuss where things may be going wrong to detract from the role. Good or bad idea?

    I have some materials but all about language teaching. Which subject are you applying for?

    Thank you, this will be my firm if I don't get into UCL for school direct.

    If you are doing primary pgce, this might be the reason it is delayed, as they do secondary first I think.

    I would wait another week before emailing, just in case. As they do have until january (40 days from receipt of application)

    Hi everyone.

    Been lurking since the start of the thread but thought I would say hi as I have my first general primary interview tomorrow at UWE and nerves are starting to kick in.

    Skills tests booked for two weeks today and really need to focus on my maths as struggling with time limit and no calculator section.

    Big well done to everyone who has secured a place already. Managed to get 3 out of 3 interviews so my application must have been ok.

    I am 32 nearly 33 and have two boys 5 and almost 4 so will be starting back at school with my youngest.

    Me neither. When did you submit your application and what subject are you applying for? I read it on UCL web that interviews won't start until December.
