    Yeah it is. It's a shape and space task, and you have to guess what age you/level of work the maths is at and like what your interpretation of the task is!

    I got my offer about 2 days afterwards! They have said that if you haven't heard from them in 3 weeks then you can contact them to ask for feedback/information why you haven't heard from them!

    Hi guys! Hope all your interviews have gone well. I had my interview for Northumbria in early December and thankfully received my offer. I found Northumbria to be the most relaxed interview of the three that I did! Don't be worrying if they said it could take weeks to hear back... it won't. I had my offer within 36 hours. They tell admissions their decision that day and them it's up to admissions to update ucas. Im coming over from Northern Ireland and I'm freaking out about places to live!! If any of you are gonna choose Northumbria as your firm decision can you get back to me about where you're planning to live, like halls or private rents! Would gladly appreciate it! To those who haven't done their interview yet.... RELAX. They want to see the real you so let them see that! X
    Hey, northumbria is my first choice but i haven't had an interview yet, it's not until next week, however if I do get in I'll be staying in halls for the first year! x

    90 mins that's very very long others have been only 15-20 mins long.

    Knowing that others have got offers back and their interviews were after mine and I have still not heard from them, what's the chance of me getting an offer? I'm really freaking out and need to know if I should be prepared for them to reject me 🙁

    I'm talking 90 mins as in the prep for the reading in groups, the prep for the maths task and the actual individual interview. Also counting the introduction part at the start!

    Hey, dont be nervous, everyone was so friendly!! My interview went well thank you, be prepared to read a children's story book in a small group and have to present how you would read it infront of two interviewers. Then they asked us on what we would do after we had read the book with children and just talk about stuff like asking the children if they could relate and how they felt about the book.
    After that they presented a worksheet done by a child and they asked us to evaluate it in smaller groups then we had to feed back on what we thought about the specific worksheet.
    Then at the end the individual interview wasn't too bad, be prepared to tell them what in the course may be an obstacle for you as i struggled to think of something which wasnt too major hahahaha
    Hoped this helped and GOOD LUCKKK! xx
    Hi i wanted to know did you have to read the book as if it was to children?
