    First time using this so don't know if I'm using it correctly but here goes...

    I'm applying for BA Primary Education and have received 4 interview offers, first
    being this coming Wednesday. Does anybody have any advice for one to one
    interviews or group interviews? Also it says that mental maths calculation strategies will be tested...is this something to be scared of?

    Would you recommend going alone to the interview days or taking someone with you? I think I will be going alone to the majority but is this advised?

    Also if anybody else has applied to any of these, let me know:
    York St John
    Edge Hill
    Liverpool Hope
    Leeds Trinity
    Hull

    Hi I've applied to Leeds trinity and York St John as well! Have you been given interview dates for them yet? From the other interviews I've been to I would recommend looking at some current educational issues for the individual interview and the maths tasks have been of a similar difficulty as the skills tests. I'm taking a guest to York but not Leeds. At the first interview I had there was only one guest but the second about half of the interviewees took a guest so it seems to be different at each uni. Hope at least some of this helps! ☺️
