I had my PGCE interview on the 18th March at Bangor......am i right to be doubtful that i was successful, and i really thought it went well :/! I really wanted to get on this course so im thnking great 3rd attempt at applying and ive been unsuccessful again! its really getting to me as i really want to teach....just wanted some kind of idea of how long others waited for a decision after interview? thanks
I waited two days, but that was at Cumbria. Some people I know have waited two or three weeks. I was just incredibly lucky.
Join the club i am also a bangor applicant,had interview a week ago and not heard a thing.I thought my interview went well aswell but it had nothing in the post or on here saying ive been sucessful or unsucessful.What course did you apply for?
Hey, I waited over a week but people heard before me and I thought I hadn't got in, but I did.
They said before 10 working days.
Universities are able to make us wait 28 days before giving us a decision. If you think it went well, it almost certainly did and you've probably got a place. Good Luck!
By the sounds of things I shudnt really need to be panicing just yet :s I applied for the lower primary 3-7 course. The lecturers who did the process told me the person who deals with admissions had gone away on hol the day I ad my interview.I'd like to think I hear soon maybe they r shut over Easter I dnt know just tryin to keep a bit more positive about things :s x
im the same early years 3-7.welsh half term is a week earlier than english half term and when i went on the 23rd they still had no secetary either so there could be a delay because of that as the place was practically a ghost town when i went for my interview
We were told a maximum of two weeks and it took almost that long - felt like forever!
Me too,so pleased, so glad its over
Well done, that's FANTASTIC news!!! xxx
I had interview with sheffield yesterday for geog pgce that lasted all day - checked GTTR at around 1.30pm today, and found out I had an unconditional offer. Woop!! so can atke less than 24 hours apparently! I was getting a bit down after my first choice Birmingham rejected me, and took 2 weeks to do so, but soooooo happy today!! Congrats on yours too. Brum told me they were waiting to interview a whole pool of people before deciding, so i guess that's what takes time as well.
Was 13 days for me (for Reading).
Just a quick heads up for those waiting a while: do get in touch with the institute at which you had your interview! (That doesn't just mean a while from having had your interview, since the following all happened within 10 days of my interview, just from when the university first received your application!)
GTTR has a few set "timers" within its system. I can't remember them exactly, but I believe it is something like 56 days from said institute receiving your application to giving you a reply, and/or 28 days from said institute first telling you of an interview to receiving a reply.
If said university does not reply within the given time frame, GTTR automatically updates with "unsuccessful."
For me, the timer from Reading just so happened to coincide with when they were going to let me know if I had been successful or not. Being abroad at the time, I didn't have access to my post, just track. So, when I signed into track to find out that my application had been forward to the next institute, I was absolutely gutted. I thought my interview had gone great! Anyhow, 2 days later, my housemate (under instruction from me to open any post from Reading) informed me that I was successful and had a conditional offer!
So, I went back to track and dug a little deeper. On another screen it said "Reading: Unsuccessful - No decision received." I was shocked that they could do this.
Got back in touch with Reading, who apologised for the inconvenience and informed me that I had to ring track, tell them to withdraw my aplication from the new university and have them replace my 3rd university with Reading so it would get sent back there.
So, yeah, don't be afraid to be in touch with the universities! It can save some very unnecessary disappointment! (Reading PGCE Chemistry, here I come!...Subject to conditions :P)
