Hi all

I passed my skills tests today, so now have a place at UEA on the Early Years PGCE this September!

I know its early, but just thought i would see if there are any other potential PGCE-ers out there. Very excited to start the course and to meet everybody!

Hi Amy! Nice to meet you . I don't usually use this site but wasn't sure how to go about finding people. I guess someone will set up a facebook page closer to the time. Are you local to UEA or will you be moving? What do you do at the moment?

I graduated last year also doing Psychology but at Hull University. Since then iv'e just been working part time and getting school experience, and iv'e got a bit of travelling lined up. I live in Holt (about 45 mins away) so fairly local, but i'm hoping to move into the city for September

Yes it was! Pleased to hear you got on, how did your other interview go? I think I remember you saying you had another one the following week. I wonder if anyone else from our interview got on, I suppose we'll find out in September. I've got friends on my course who are still waiting for their interview so I'm pleased we got it all finished with before christmas, I don't think I could have handled waiting this long!

Hi!

I start my Secondary PGCE this September at UEA I did my undergrad there too.

I have made a PGCE Secondary page which should come up on the UEA Facebook page (if it's not then do let me know!).

It would be worth making an Early Years/Primary page too

Woo well done! You'll be fine Just do the practice tests, Maths isn't my strong point at all and I've always been comfortable with Literacy, did the same amount of practice for both but I actually found the Maths a bit easier! I'm excited too

Well done What age are you specialising in? I already live in a student house in Norwich as I have studied at UEA for my undergrad, but if you need any help with things there or want to know anything, I'll be more than happy to help if I can!

I have a place on the Primary PGCE with French specialism course So excited to start! Would end of June/beginning of July be too late to start looking for a house/flat? I'm still at uni and live in Yorkshire and can't go down to viewings until then really :/

It might be worth having a look online first to see what you can find or contacting UEA and asking if they can help you There still tends to be houses around then though so don't panic!
