Hi, I got an interview for the last week of Feb... I'm nervous about the maths test. could someone maybe give me examples or practice papers to look over in preparation? I just don't want it to hold back my confidence.

They should have emailed you a sample paper? You really shouldn’t worry about the maths bit as it actually doesn’t impact the outcome (it’s only to gage your level of maths but it doesn’t actually influence their decision to take you on or not). The main bits they look at are your ability to write at a Masters level (during the written task), your ability to communicate (presentation) and your passion for education (throughout).

Your maths paper will be 5 statements to which you have - three choices: ‘always true’ ‘sometimes true’ ‘never true’. After you tick your answer you have to explain your thought process. E.g. 2+2 is the same as 2x2 - always true - when you multiply you’re essentially adding “groups” so 2 groups of 2 is the same as 2 plus 2 which both give you 4. [I didn’t get this question, but I did get something similar... although my memory isn’t brilliant so you’re better off looking at the sample paper they’ve given you].

Good luck!!

I've been accepted for PGCE secondary science with chemistry at Homerton. Am on TSR looking to do some networking/find people to live with as I would prefer to live with other trainees. I don't know if this is the best place to look for that. I'm a young man, good cook, quite sociable. If there are better fora for this then please direct me accordingly.
