I have been asked to attend an interview with Cambridge University for PGCE General Primary.
I've read what I found on the forum but most of the posts on this subject are from people who were also about to go to their interview but who hadn't actually attended yet.
Is there anyone who has already had their interview who would be willing to share some of their wisedom (i.e. telling me how the interview unfolds)
I already had mine. 1st- Group discussion on educational issues. 2nd - Your individual presentation to the group about a worthwhile learning activity. They will ask you questions afterwards. 3rd - Then you have 55 minutes for the written task BUT they take you out for your 15 minute individual interview during this time... Cheeky!
Questions were pretty standard. Most ended up being quite personal to me and my application.
Feel free to ask any more questions and good luck!
Hey, i've applied but waiting to hear back. May i ask what kind of qualifications you have and what university you attend/ed.
I am feeling disheartened and would like to know about others who are receiving interviews.\
Thanks for any help
Hiya! I got an offer from Cambridge shortly after my interview! Absolutely over the moon, it is literally a dream come true.
The people there are lovely, so try not to feel too nervous for the interviews. The interviewers emphasised that we weren't competing with one another, so we should feel at ease and simply showcase the best parts of ourselves.
Best of luck to everyone! Hopefully we'll all see each other next year!
Hiya, I got an offer from Cambridge shortly after my interview too. The interviewers were really nice and it all felt really relaxed. I'm currently studying Psychology but they didn't really focus on qualifications, they were more interested in experience.
Good luck and if you have any questions about the interview I'd be happy to help 😊
Congratulations to those offered places and hopefully the ones waiting will hear back soon. I've got an interview in 2017 so will be spending my Christmas preparing everything!
Hi everyone! Congratulations to all those who have received offers so far! I have my interview next Friday. Does anyone have info/tips on the written exercise? I left university 8 years ago so I'm a bit out of practice with academic writing!
How long did it take to hear back from Cambridge? I keep hearing tales of people receiving offers within hours and am feeling as if an offer is increasingly unlikely...
