    Hi, I have my interview and presentation on Wednesday 28th January and was just wondering what the day consists of. I'm not worrying too much about the interview but more the presentation. Could you tell me a some of the things I should expect during my presentation.

    Many thanks

    From what I know you are shown where to go then the group splits up, one group does their written test whilst the other does the mini-teach and then goes on a campus tour, then you swap over and then after lunch you have your individual interviews then it's home time.

    Hi, basically we had this talk that lasts for about half an hour. After that the parents are sent to a different room and assessors come in, your names are read out in groups then you go off with which two assessors you have been allocated with. You all go into this room then in your groups you sit around this table and fill in this form. After all that you just start talking about your resource. Make sure you talk about how and why you think it could be used to support learning and not just what the resource is. Also be prepared for questions. Trust me everyone was nervous, it's understandable but everybody there is very nice and supportive. Good luck hope it goes well, let me know how it went!

    I've not really done much.. but there is a website that you can register with that has some online practice tests. I found the more I do the better my score. Maybe you could try that? The link is:


    http://sta.education.gov.uk/professi...y-skills-tests


    Or could you revise the area that you struggle with most? Maybe go on the TES website where they have common spelling mistakes.


    I suck at maths, I only just scraped by with my GCSE maths! Have you got any tips on how I can revise for that?
    Thank you :')

    Thanks. With maths you need to be able to use your timetables, revise percentages and fractions. And then just practice loads of different questions, the more you practice and do different questions the more prepared you will be. Hope that helps

    Apparently, once you've accepted your offer you receive an accommodation application. I accepted mine a while ago but have received nothing :/ so I think I might contact them.
