Hey there, I'm a newbie round here, so hello to everybody. Anyway... I don't really want to go too deep into every aspect of my life, but basically, I had every intention of having a PGCE application all wrapped up earlier on, but a series of things got in the way, and although I eventually accepted that I might have to end up re-applying next year, I decided to still give things a go and got my GTTR application off two weeks ago, as one or two places still had places on the course I was interested in. Aside from receiving the general welcome letter/pack (which I've only had read to me, as I'm not at my parents' house where it was sent), nothing has happened. I haven't had any notification of sorts from the institutions themselves (unless something arrived at my parents' house today), nor has anything changed on Track. Now, I understand that the applications will be taken into quite deep consideration and not simply be read and judged in the space of five minutes. Yet alongside the standard nerves and a general desire to hear something, what has made me worried is that I had a search on here concerning waiting and applying with the GTTR system, and it seemed as though the applications sometimes don't arrive at the institutions until a few weeks after the GTTR has claimed to have processed them. According to some of these posts, the space between receiving the application was as much as a month. Granted, a number of these results were from a few years ago (around 2007), and they mainly concerned applications at the very beginning of the year, but it has made me feel a little nervous, especially as July 1st and the start of clearing draws nearer. I'm therefore wondering whether or not I should contact my first choice university, or maybe even the GTTR dashboard, on Monday. Part of me feels I should, as I'm getting a bit anxious, yet part of me feels that I could perhaps come across as a bit too demanding and impatient. What do you think would be the best thing to do?
