Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Good luck next Monday!! You will be fine they were so lovely and the whole day was actually really relaxed and chilled! There's a small group activity which I think there looking at how you communicate in a group setting then you have your individual interview which was actually really short try to back your answers up with previous experience if you can and maybe try squeeze some educational issues into your answers if you can lol there were no questions that took me by surprise thank god and my interviewer was really nice , all the tutors seemed really nice and friendly! You will be great if you've any more questions feel free 😊 Are you primary or secondary?

Thank you so much for all that advice it's really helpful! I'm applying for Primary. I'm travelling from Ireland too so I really hope it's worth my while going over lol... Was the written task complicated? Not really sure how I can prepare for that one. Also did you get a start date for the course? ☺️

Literally was going to say the same thing haha the interview consists of 2 people; someone from one of the schools that they work with for placement (normally a principle or someone high up) and then someone from the university themselves. They were honestly all so lovely and chilled out so I wouldn't worry. Good Luck!!

Oh I am too, and all these pre course tasks are making me wonder what we have actually got ourselves into haha. I know the first week is an introduction and the week after is training, or so it says on the provisional timetable. I'm primary 5-11! you?

No problem at all! Sorry I haven't been back on this. How did you get on with your interview? what did you think of the written task I thought the article was a bit hard to get my head around and I think I only wrote like a page, think they were looking more for your spelling and grammar here!

Has everyone gotten their dbs check done? Basically I applied really late so only started yesterday but because I'm Irish it's hard to get atleast 3 required identity documents, I've only got 2... I'm really afraid I won't be able to start
