    Hello,

    I am in the process of applying for a secondary pgce in maths, but still have a few crucial things to get done like equivalency tests and work experience (!) am i being unrealistic in thinking there will still be vacancies (oxford) in a month or two?

    also anyone doing the maths pgce at oxford, any thoughts, experiences, words of wisdom?

    thanks,

    I am in the progress of applying now. If you REALLY want to get in this year, you'll need to set your sights a lot lower than Oxford, especially if you haven't even done any work experience yet! Oxford have probably allocated the majority of their places already. Sorry

    just thought i'd put this in so others applying late are not discouraged ... i wrote to oxford about my lack of experience, they said to apply anyway, i did and now have an interview. so it is possible and realistic !

    hope you are successful linkdapink.

    For secondary mathematics, many institutions still accept people in August for a September start.

    Well done for getting an interview. You are lucky because your subject is maths...had it been something more popular like history and english, I think it is very likely that you would have failed to get a place at most unis, but well done!
