Maybe you should ask that is the student teacher forum (rather than <u>prospective</u> student teacher). Find out if anyone there is currently doing their PGCE who was initially waitlisted. Also... if I were you I's call up IOE and speak to the course organiser or someone in the department who deals with admissions and ask them about the chances. They should be able to tell you the liklihood, or where on the list you are (are you first in line, or 10th?) Good luck!
