    I'll be applying for a secondary history PGCE. Haven't really started my application yet and aren't sure about my chances just yet!
    Same! Where are you thinking of applying?

    All I can say is get used to IT not working and people not being able to give you a solid answer! Sounds a lot like being a teacher to me!

    Institute of education and roehampton. Have to be in London so those are pretty much my only options! Surprised there aren't more unis doing the pgce considering how popular history is.

    I feel like I'm wasting money by only applying to two since its the same price applying to two as it is for four, but all the other unis I might have applied to are just too far away. Just need to make sure I get an offer!

    I'm going to probably ask a really silly question, but when I very briefly saw the work experience bit on the form yesterday, I had assumed it would be separated into related and non-related work experience but it wasn't! So do you just put in ALL work experience even if it's not directly related to school!?
    I put everything related to children & schools. Other things that show you have stuff like presentation skills ect wouldn't be a bad idea though.

    Why have you had so much trouble getting into a PGCE or are you looking to go to a specific Uni? I might be mixing you up woth someone else!

    I'm hoping to go to Edge Hill to do Primary, really nervous now incase I don't get accepted.

    I'm hoping to go to edge hill, what do you want to specialise in?

    I'm still so annoyed over this whole thing! Last year I applied 3 weeks late, my own fault I was on holiday, my application wasn't even considered by the uni! This year I have had everything prepared, and I still wasn't even able to register. So I know people have a head start on me, as I will still have to wait for my reference etc... Makes me so angry! I really hope I manage to apply as soon as it's up and running, cant be doing with another year wait x

    Please note, we will not be processing any applications until Tuesday 23 October to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity. This means that if you have already submitted a 2013 application, or you submit a 2013 application this afternoon, Saturday, Sunday or on Monday, it will be held in our system, until applications are released to training providers at the same time on the morning of Tuesday 23 October.

    Hi!

    Wondering if anyone can give me some advice. I've been on filling out my application this afternoon (now that the GTTR ia finally up and running!). Most of it is done, however I'm a bit confused with the Main Degree Subjects section in the Education part. My degree is 100% English Language, so I don't know if putting that in is enough, or if I need to list all of my individual modules. My course is made up of 20+ modules between 10 and 20 credits, so the percentage for each one will only be around 3-6%. I've done some searching in the Internet and found conflicting info. Some people have said they just put 100% [instert degree here] and it was fine. Others have said they listed all the modules individually. So now I'm not quite sure what to do. Anyone have any advice? What are people here planning on doing? I feel like the whole thing will look silly if I write a huge long list of modules with only 3% written next to them, but at the same time, I'm not sure if just putting English Language 100% is enough detail. Help!

    Definitely put all the details of your individual modules in, after all that's what they are asking for! Otherwise I'm afraid it may make you look "lazy" and like you couldn't be bothered to type it all in. I don't think the percentage matters. I'm doing an English Literature degree and most of my modules are either 8% or 4%. I think those amounts are perfectly fine, considering you're calculating the amount of time spent on those modules over a period of three years!

    Thanks! I had already written out all my modules, I just didn't know whether to send it like that. But I agree, it shows a lot more detail, so I'm going to leave it as it is. A related question - should I include modules from the first year? I currently have them in my list, but it just occurred to me that none of my first year modules actually count towards my degree, so I'm not sure if they need to be there. Technically it's not accurate to have Introduction To English Syntax - 3% on the form, as my degree doesn't actually include this module. But I obviously did do a number of modules throughout my first year, so I don't know if they should be included or not! Argh, this is so confusing! =P

    I'm not sure what to do with mine either. I studied a four year degree, with only third and fourth year counting towards my degree. It seems stupid to leave them out but then you don't want to be saying they counted when they didn't :/ Someone help please!

    Over the moon; finally sent off my application for PGCE secondary Drama. What a relief since the maintenance works were beginning to get the better of me. Hoping now that my reference comes through before Tuesday seeing as my referee had a heads up before the system became corrupt
    How's everybody else getting on?
    Any Drama applicants out there??

    I included all my modules last year when I applied.

    I've currently just included my second and third year modules - they're all that's actually on my official transcript anyway.

    So, my degree name/title has a '/' in it, but GTTR don't like them or '-' (which is in one of my module titles). Have put brackets in my degree title instead...awkward.

    I did a taught MA last year and would like to add more about my modules but they don't seem to be interested in that...

    Sorry just to clarify, you put in any 1st or 2nd year modules despite the fact that have no bearing on the degree result and add the time/credit percentage which will be essentially be 1/18th of my overall modules from the three years?
