    Anyone know when York St John will open for applications? They don't even come up with any courses on the UCAS search - arrgh! My other two choices are open already...worried if I don't apply for them now then I'll lose out on everywhere I want to apply... :-(

    I have done the same, though my highest qualification will be MA. I listed my BA modules as priority, as they cover more of the relevant curriculum subjects... Hope it's okay, couldn't see an Hons option, unless I missed it!
    I rang UCAS, the woman said it would be seen as an ordinary degree but because I listed I have done a dissertation the unis would probably realise it was a mistake. I just resubmitted my application in the end, didn't want to risk it! But if you have put the grade for your BA I am sure it will be fine

    Does anyone know if it is possible to amend the personal statement once it has been saved, but is in the process of waiting for references to be added?

    Can UCAS allow us to amend it slightly?

    Thanks very much for any advice

    York St John is my first choice and I found it easily yesterday. Are you sure you're doing the correct search? i.e maybe just type York and see if that brings it up?

    I spoke to someone at ucas and they said to copy and paste it exactly from word and that the unis will see it as it is formatted in word

    Why is Secondary ENGLISH not coming up in the drop down box for Hertfordshire university on the UCAS website?
    They seem to have every other subject and it says on their website that they do Secondary English for PGCE. I don't understand!!!

    A massive one - you can't apply with an ordinary degree as it's below a third! Call UCAS and get it fixed.



    You write about why teaching, how you know teaching is for you, other experiences that will make you a great teacher and anything else that applies. There's guidance in the personal statement section of this website

    ********

    Should I enter my disability mentor as a character reference as she probably knows me best or, do I ask the chairperson of the learning disability group that I work at? I'm the deputy treasurer, so is there enough of a "gap" between our roles for her to be a good choice? I haven't spoken to her for quite a while as there's been a falling out in the group and I'm unsure if she's okay with me now.

    I could use my the leader of the National Citizen Service group that I volunteered with over the summer or the leader of the entire scheme in my city. I really don't know what to do

    I best ring the teaching agency for advise or ask my friend.

    How am I going to write a personal statement without teaching experience?

    I would be the weakest candidate out of them all.


    I will do teaching experience but not yet.

    They have to stay open for at least two weeks. After that then yes, they can close applications if they wish; with the massive increase in likely application volume many are likely to close for a bit and then re-open later.

    Hey, I'm filling in my application and am up to the school and work experience section. How much detail are we meant to put in this? I've listed out all my experience in the format

    "from X date to X date I worked at Y school with this age of pupils, the duration of my placement was Z days"

    but I have loads of space left! Are we meant to put details about how we found the placements, the work we did on them etc? Because I thought that's what the personal statement was for and this one was literally just for listing the dates of placements...

    Also should I be including placements I've been accepted onto but haven't completed yet? For example "in early 2014 I will be completing a placement of X days at Y primary school?"
    If you are still wanting to know...

    If you have spare room you may as well list your duties. Like just saying what you did, rather than commenting on how you found it or what you got from it. Broadly as well, like 'lead small groups, taught starters, observed year 3, assisted class teacher' etc.

    But if you haven't don't worry. The main thing is writing what the experience is.

    Also I would include the future placements but make it very clear that they are future. Then they know you have more lined up!

    Can you change who your referees are? Another lecturer has said she will complete my reference now so was wondering if I could change?

    I assume a print off an email with confirmation of application and reference number should suffice?

    Don't think so I'm afraid. Best phone UCAS to find out though!

    Actually I think you can. Referees still show up with an edit button so maybe worth a try. However that means someone would have already got an e-mail, so I dunno if that could work. You could ring UCAS.
