    Hey, not been accepted yet, they received my application yesterday as my first choice was declined.. I hadn't realised that when I sent the application that only one at a time got it.. Worcester probably would have been my top choice..

    Congrats on getting accepted, what was the interview like?

    Yeah, i didn't know that when you apply to the two uni's, they only send out the one application!
    Have you been offered an interview yet? It was ok! there was 4 sections, 1. Written test (on phonics - not sure if its all the same) 2. Focus group - gave you a question in groups of 4, such as 'what makes an effective learner' for you to discuss together. 3. Presentation - you give a short presentation on a lesson you've taught. 4. Interview.
    They grade you on each section, and if you get all Cs, you get in.. I would make sure you read up on current debates as they'll ask you about this!

    Nope haven't heard yet, I called them today and they said they are waiting for my application to arrive by post or something which should be today so I should hear by the end of the week.. Fingers crossed!

    The interview sounds fairly intense.. Hopefully I'll be Ok.. Is it like A,B,C and you need to get at least a C?

    Thanks for all the interview advice,

    Jo
