    Admittedly, I don't know that many PGCEs outside of my college, but my college (Kellogg) does have loads of them (so many that they have an MCR rep).

    Would you recommend Kellogg as a good college for PGCE then?

    Oh ok, fair enough. The lady at the interview said St. Stephens so I didn't really query it. I may call them tomorrow for some advice. Thank you I will look into Kellog. What do you study?

    I mean, I don't know. Maybe they have a lot more students than 20 graduates. But as it stands the 'PGCE community' cannot be that big unless they don't actually have any theology student.

    I think what your college is is rather unimportant. PGCE students are often quite busy, and having a PGCE community in college is not that helpful when the people who can help you the most are likely to be your coursemates. This is especially true if you're not even living on college.

    I will be living at college so I guess for me the main thing is that there is nice accommodation!

    Which subject? Just be yourself, think about what sort of school you'd like to work in. They were really nice when I had mine. Good luck!

    Hiii I had to answer a question on how I would teach a lesson with students with learning or behavioural disabilities and also which topic I would like to teach and how. Hope that helps! the main thing is to be confident and be yourself! That seemed to work for me

    Good luck!

    Ah thank you so much! I can't wait to get there now and get on with it!
    Did you have to do a sheet with a lesson on it too? Do you have to actually do the lesson or just give them the sheet?

    I had to pick a historical figure and give a presentation on why i would use this person to teach a terms worth work. So i'm not sure about your sheet, sorry. Maybe be prepared for both?

    Oo blimey, it only says to do a sheet on my email but I'll make sure I have something in mind for both! I had an interview at Uni of Birmingham who offered me a place and I was offered an interview at Newman but withdrew my application while I waited to hear from Oxford. You?

    Yeah to be honest I don't think they try to put people on the spot so it will most likely be as they said in the email/letter. I had an interview at Birmingham they took a life time to gt bk to me and i was unsuccessful but there was 500 applicants for 13 places so I tried not to wallow in self-pity too much! I would have agonised over where to choose any way out of UOB and Oxford so perhaps it is better this way! I also interviewed at TF and got a place. Where would you go given the choice? Congrats btw on getting your place at Birmingham looks like a great course!

    Cheers! UoB's course does look good, but I think I would choose Oxford if I got in, it's just such an amazing place! I have a friend who did his undergrad at Oxford and he has been putting me through some harsh mock interviews. Not entirely sure if that's helping haha
