    Hello!

    I've applied for the DLITE Primary PGDE. I'm not too sure, I thought we'd receive an e-mail informing us whether or not we have an interview - only been just over a week since the closing date though, so hopefully we'll hear back soon!

    It wasn't nearly as stressful as I had imagined. There were two people on the panel. I did my presentation first, which was really relaxed and I was sitting down, then I was asked 5 questions. One was about the presentation and the others were more general about yourself and teaching. Nothing complicated. I don't know if yours will be the same structure, so please don't rely too much on my experience. Go in as prepared as possible. When is yours?

    Thanks!

    That's good to hear, I'd imagine they'd probably go for the same sort of format for all applicants, was worried there was going to be about 7 people all scrutinizing my every word - stress, ha ha!. I've only got about 2 weeks to prepare for the interview.

    I hope you get a place on the course!

    I was the same... But it's honestly really not that bad. The people who interviewed me were really and encouraging. Do you mind me asking which region you are from? I'm wondering why there is so much space between interviews... I was on day 3 of interviews for Aberdeenshire.

    That's good, thanks for letting me know. I'm in Moray. I guess it's due to them being really busy and arranging places for interviews an what not!

    Hey!

    Any word back on whether or not you got a place yet?

    I've not long had my interview, my presentation went okay I think, however, my answers to the interview questions were really crap, even though the interviewers were nice, I was so damn nervous, think I totally ruined my chances of a place. Hopefully, they will take my education, experience, personal statement and reference into consideration before rejecting me due to a bad interview, in which I know I could have done a lot better.

    I emailed the uni yesterday... We should hear back this week.
    Have you heard anything?
    Don't worry... I was coughing so much that I had to leave the room a few times. I was full of the cold.

    Oh no, what a nightmare having a cold, I'm sure they understand though, something like that can't be helped!

    No, I haven't heard anything yet, really hope we hear this week as I'm sick of waiting around for results and things, been a very stressful and, at times, hectic year!

    Do you know whether we'll hear by e-mail or post?

    Sorry to hear that... I still haven't heard anything yet. I'm expecting the same outcome though. Will you apply again next year?
