    This is horrible isn't it?! *Big sigh*. The only hope is maybe its done alphabetical but i doubt that. For temp teacher positions do you not need a PGCE?

    No post for me and my surname is B. And you need to be registered on the teaching board to do part time so you do need a PGCE

    Didn't think it's required for sub teacher positions, maybe I'm wrong, oh well I'd be happy with voluntary as long as it gets me experience :/

    I got on the reserve last year, they wont tell you how far up the list you are, you just have to wait and see if anyone declines their offer.

    Has anyone got a letter since Thursday? It seems all the people who got offers got word on Thursday. Has anyone got a letter to tell them they are on the reserve list?

    Still no post for me. I phoned Queens and they said all English responses have been posted. Really hope there is something tomorrow either way. Then today she said offers, reserve and unsuccessful letters have all been posted at the same time. So, waiting this long doesn't mean a negative outcome. But i don't think its looking good waiting this long!

    Well done getting in the reserve better than being unsuccessful.

    Nothing. And then I read that everything was sent out at the same time so no news doesn't mean not in. I don't even want to think about it right now because if I get my hopes up again I might be devastated all over again. This is definitely a nightmare and I would quite like to wake up now please.

    My wife has her letter sitting here at home right now. I don't want to phone her at work to tell her that it's here, because I don't want to mess up her day.

    Like a few of you waiting for letters, this is her umpteenth time applying for this English PGCE (well, her 4th) and I just hope that she gets in. Good luck to the others waiting on word also.

    Nope, another rejection letter. She's on the waiting list for Coleraine. Here's hoping that those who have been offered places in both and are taking QUB have the wit to turn down Coleraine quickly so this list can get moving.
