    I'm going to Coleraine for English too! Congrats on getting off the list, you must be so relieved!

    Just throwing my hat in. I've just been offered a place at UU Coleraine as well, having been on the reserve list. Three days ago I got a call and it hasn't sunk in yet. I've been trying since 2008 to get into this, even doing an MA to bolster my chances. I am so so very happy, excited and slightly terrified. But let's bring it on!

    Looking forward to meeting everyone. See you on the 27th.

    Hey Laura,

    Same thing happened me with a delayed offer, worst thing is that I've been in America the whole summer and I only get back tomorrow, but if I can sort everything out I'm sure you can too haha, good luck with it all! Looking forward to meeting everyone on the course!

    Looks like it will be the 45 minutes or less, depending on how soon you are seen!

    Is everyone getting excited now??

    Wow! They've already started on the interviews! That's early, usually it's January. As for ICT what did your letter state you had to do? For me (physics) I had to present a lesson without power points or electrical devices. As for advice make sure to teach at a junior level (KS3 to GCSE) and make sure to know what is involved in teaching, they might grill you on that. Any more questions just ask.

    Hi,

    I have applied to Queens to do a Maths PGCE, my interview is the start of January. I was wondering if anyone who has had an interview to do maths could give me a couple of examples of the questions they were asked?

    Thanks.

    Anyone remember or know when you here if you've been offered a place or not? I don't know if I imagined the interviewer telling me the end of February.

    Thanks

    Last year we did not find out until May, however that was because they were waiting to hear from the department of education exactly how many places were available. They have this years quota already, so I assume successful applicants will be told much much earlier! Possibly March? Good luck!
