Hi so I am starting to get quite nervous about offers as I haven’t received any for the course I want. I’m applying to primary education at Stirling, Glasgow, Strathclyde, Dundee and Queen Margaret in Edinburgh.

I have 2As 2Bs and a C in higher
I have 3As and 4Bs in Nat 5 with a B in maths for reference.

I was wondering when unis May offer interviews or give me an offer. I’m starting to get concerned since everyone around me is receiving offers from different courses but the same unis. Please give ur stories or advice thank u xx

Hi,
I’ve applied for primary education at Stirling, Glasgow, strathclyde, Dundee and Aberdeen. I’ve got an interview for Dundee in January, but apart from that I haven’t heard anything. From what I’ve heard from friends that applied in previous years I wouldn’t be worried about not hearing back yet, I think the primary education course should tend to take longer to reply than other ones ( especially the science courses, because some of them do it entirely on grades and they don’t have interviews)

Hey,

I've applied for Strath, Dundee, QMU, Glasgow and Dundee. I've had an unconditional from Aberdeen and also had an interview at Dundee a short while ago. I have not heard anything back from anyone other than Aberdeen so far. I am not too sure when we will hear back from the others but I am sure it won't be too long - Submit reply

don't stress too much!

Hey, I have applied to Dundee, Aberdeen, Stirling, QMU and Glasgow (Dumfries campus). My Dundee interview is on Wednesday and I have one for Glasgow in Feb. I wouldn’t worry as I only found out last week and applied in November. I’ve not heard from others yet.

Hiya, I applied to Glasgow, Strathclyde, Stirling, Dundee and QMU on the 2nd of December. I had an interview on the 24th for Dundee but that's all I've heard so far. Dundee said at the end of the interview that we won't hear back until the end of March. A lot of people said they haven't heard from any other of the universities they've applied for, which was a big relief. Good luck to everyone applying for Primary Education and fingers crossed we start to hear back soon!

Had my Dundee interview earlier today. Was so laid back and the interviewers made everyone feel at ease. Now the big wait hopefully for an offer!

Nothing that would trip you up I would say. General questions like what would you do in a certain scenario and what do you think the demands of a teacher are etc!

Hey! I think I might have spoken to you on the Dundee Interview day? Did you interview on the 24th? We both got unconditionals for Aberdeen and we said that we could car share because we live close to each other. If it doesn't ring a bell, don't worry and just ignore me haha

I applied to Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, Queen Margaret and Stirling (specialism in Modern Languages) and I've interviews for both Aberdeen and Dundee and I have unconditionals for both. I'm mainly waiting on Stirling as it's my joint top choice with Dundee. Good luck to everyone applying and congratulations to everyone with offers!

I just thought that I should add- don't stress about not having offers etc yet. Some of my friends who have also applied for primary education have only got interviews for a few uni's and don't have any offers. My head of senior years told us today that no news is good news as uni's will get rejections out really quickly so just hold tight! I'm sure good news will be coming!

Hi everyone, just a quick update from me! So like I’ve mentioned I attended my Dundee interview last week. I’ve also got Aberdeen on the 25th of this month and Glasgow 6th of March (had to change Glasgow because they have construction on in the building). I won’t receive any unconditional offers because I need one more qualification. I’m glad I’ve not heard any rejections yet but would give me peace of mind to receive a conditional offer from the two that don’t interview. Also hoping Dundee don’t reply as late as the end of March because the wait is killing me!

Hi Tara,

Well done on your interviews! The presentation will be fine as long as you are able to work with people - I made a friend as I walked through the door who I had never met - stick with that person and you'll be fine. For the interview, it's all about you. Talk about your experiences. It might be a while from when you walk through the door. I waited 2 and a half hours before it was my turn.

Hi Daniel,
