so i got an interview for Primary Education (BEd) at Strathclyde and Univeristy of Glasgow (Dumfries campus). The one in Strath is a group interview and the one in Glasgow has a written task. I was wondering if anyone was in the same position as me or if they had went through either interview and give me some tips?

I had an interview at both Dundee and Strathclyde.
Dundee is a really good interview. I really enjoyed the way they set it up and put you at ease throughout the whole thing. Even make you teas and coffees! Very Impressed. The only advice I can really give with the presentation is to just get up there and do it. I was the only one to do it without notes and they seemed genuinely impressed by that. They aren't looking for how good your presentation is but how you present it. Remember you aren't going to stand up and teach a class with notes. Interview lasts around two hours and I couldn't believe how quickly the time had passed.
Strathclyde seemed quite poorly organised in comparison to be honest. Only lasting roughly 30 mins. With some ridiculous questions.
However was impressed at how quickly both got back to me. Dundee not even a week and Strathclyde exactly a week. I got conditionals for both .
I also applied to Stirling, but haven't heard anything at all from them.
Hope this helps.
