    Hi,

    I did! It is on February 2nd. I am currently feeling a touch perplexed by the "presentation on a topic of your choice" element. Help!

    I wish I could help, I'm feeling just as confused. Not sure whether they want us to do literally anything, in order to see our presentation skills! Been looking at forums etc but so far no luck 🙄

    It was great! Don't be nervous it's honestly fine! The presentation honestly doesn't matter topic wise, but you should use it to display your experience etc

    Do you know if you have a place yet? What was the written test like? Did they ask you questions on the presentation?

    No they said we will find out in the next few weeks. And no they had so little time they didn't ask any of us about it but in some of the other groups they did. Also the written test is completely opinion based and don't be stressing about it either because it's just a trial and it doesn't actually matter that much. It's just loads of scenarios and you have to choose the best possible way to approach it as if you were a teacher! Hope this all helps!

    Hi can you tell me about the group activity please? The question - what is the purpose of education? - what were the answers like and did everyone need to supply an answer separately? The second part of the question too about ensuring that every child will have an equal chance to benefit? I'm a very nervous person. Any help on this is greatly appreciated, thank you x

    It's pretty related to be honest just make sure you look up the curriculum, talk about SHANARRI, and GIRFEC good phrases to drop in!

    Wtf? Really! I would chase it up as soon as. I applied to Glasgow and got rejected on English - which I have, so currently disputing that! And UWS didn't get an interview 🙄 That's my options out - 4 years of rejection kinda wears you down 😴
