So I've accepted to start my Secondary Geography PGCE course at Edge Hill to start in September 2014 and it would be cool to get to know people who are also doing PGCE's and the Geography course especially

How's everyone feeling about starting the course? I personally cannot wait!

Oh that's good! to be honest I thought everyone was very good, wouldn't be surprised if they all did. Yeah, they didn't say anything about school experience, but I also have to do chemistry. So once again, I'm glad I'm not the only one haha. It's going to be hectic because my Msc lasts until 30th August, eeeek.

Nope, I'm really starting to worry that they've changed their mind and given my place to someone else :/ I think we are meant to have heard their decision by 10 days after the interview which takes us up to tomorrow! Uuurrrrggghhhh

The admissions staff told me it usually is a maximum of 5 days for the tutor to get back to them... well over 5 days now. I even emailed Bernard yesterday, but still haven't got a reply. It says on UCAS the deadline for your choices replying is 25th, I don't know what that means but I hope they get back to us before then!

Let me know if Bernard gets back to you it's starting to worry me. They said to me that if it's over 5 working days the admissions would chase up the course leader for the decision. I'm hoping he's just unorganised haha

I will, and you let me know if you get your offer I'm going to try and forget about it until the 25th, and if we still don't have an offer by then, then I'll be panicking! haha

Nice to hear from you guys

What's everyone's thought on accommodation come September? Who's planning on living in the graduate halls on campus? Not sure whether to do that for ease or try find a private house/flat to live in!

Hey, I asked about on campus halls and they said that they don't offer them for PGCE. I think I'm going to go for private halls in Liverpool alternately they send around an email with the names of everyone looking to rent!
