    Hi guys,

    I have an interview at Marjon in plymouth at the end of the month to get onto a pgce course, and I am so nervous!!!

    I was wondering if there are any teachers out there who could advise me as to what the assessment day might involve, and what sort of questions might be asked at the interview. And even stupid little things like what should I wear?!

    Any suggestions gratefully received!!!

    I'm not actually sure where it is! Am I better staying in the hotel at sutton harbour or in the city centre? Or do you know a cheap hotel that's closer? Sorry for all the questions!

    I recently completed a PGCE and when I was preparing for interviews I found the TES website noticeboards invaluable for info/feedback/ideas.

    If you don't have any information about what is going to happen on the day you should speak to the college and find out what they are going to ask you to do at the interview. Some ask you to present on an education-based topic - you need to be ready!

    Good luck!

    sorry to keep bugging you sonkie, but you're the fountain of all knowledge!!

    If I were to get the 6.30am:eek: flight back to manchester, any idea what time I'd have to be at the airport?

    I'm wondering, if it was like 4.30, I could just set up camp in the airport and not have to pay for the hotel for another night lol
