    Hey sorry I didn't reply quickly I had my interview on Wednesday and it went really well and ive been offered a conditional place Here a few topics to look over before your interview as the tests are GCSE level and if your like me you wont remember much from you GCSE as they were 2 years ago or more .
    maths- percentages, decimals, fractions, algebra (value of x), ratio , adding , subtracting, multiplication & long division.
    English- . The English section is all based on a children's poem and you have to say whether some of the word are Adjectives, nouns, verbs &adverbs, there's also punctuation and comprehension questions. Also look at personification etc
    Science- the universe/space, plant &animal cells, protons/electrons/atoms/neutrons, electrical circuits, photosynthesis, what part of the body digests fat. In the science section there is little case studies and most of your answers come from there.

    written task- first question is based on four different opinions on learning and you had to explain what you thought was the best and why.
    2nd question was asking should teachers have a lot of knowledge and the 3rd question was based on your own experience

    Good Luck with your interview! I hope this helps..

    Good luck guys! The presentation bit was a bit strange in my interview, we had to merge our continuous play based education activity with another candidates. Make a list of the key areas before you start so you can tick them off. Good luck!!
