    No problems. Group interview/ chat - very informal. We all stood up and gave a presentation of our choice. Mine was about the importance of my subject in life in general. I spoke without notes. Someone else gave a ppt presentation about an element of their subject. Then we had quick individual interviews, again very informal, very relaxed. We had been sent some guff to read about teaching in FE and we discussed this at interview.
    The worst bit was waiting to hear if I had been accepted. I nearly moved on to my second choice. I wasn't rejected but my acceptance wasn't confirmed for a few weeks. But I was interviewed in December and didn't get a reply until Februaryish. At this stage of the year and with a lack of applicants I would imagine they will snap your arm off straight away.

    Thanks very much for your reply. My interview i think will be in the same format as your presentation and interview, i might also have to do a piece of writing. I am prepping myself, i only hope mine will be as relaxed and informal as yours :rolleyes:...but well done for getting through it. Do you mind if i ask what university you studied or will be studying?
