    Aw well done for getting an interview and thank you!!, If it's the same lay out as mine you will do your presentation and mine was only infront of a very small number of people (3) and you just stand up and talk and it's so relaxed just say what you have too and practice it! If you need to you can bring little flash card just don't write exactly what your going to say or read from it! Then after everyone has done their presentation you do a group disscussion with the other people in your group for 15 minutes, it just feels like your having a normal converstaion, make sure you talk as much as you can but (not too much!) and just stay calm and everything will go fine, good luck.

    Hi Beth,

    I received my offer for Edinburgh on 8th March for Primary Education with History - C in English, B in Maths. However, I think I've leaned more towards doing Secondary Education at Stirling now. Sadly Edinburgh don't offer a similar qualification as it's one of the top Universities.

    Well done on your offer, why is Stirling your first choice and which specialism did you pick?
