I got a place at Brighton Uni to do a PGCE English starting in September. Since they made me the offer things from Brighton have been fairly quiet. In the last few days however I have received two large envelopes. The first had my CRB, Medical Check etc forms in it and asked for a cheque for just over £70. Excellent. A sign of things to come no doubt. The second envelope contained details of things I need to prepare for my course, another form, a reading list and...the fact that need to write a 1000 word essay! Homework already Has anyone else go to do any pre-course homework before they start?
