I have applied, fairly late in the cycle as I wasn't sure I wanted to do it, for a Music PGCE at Cambridge. They phoned today and asked me to come for interview THIS FRIDAY!
The only problem is, I haven't done any observation in a school, which you are supposed to do before interview, because I applied so late I wanted to leave it til after my dissertation etc was all done, and was therefore intending to organise it for next week or the week after. My dissertation has to be in on Wednesday, and it will take me til then to finish it, so unless I can get someone to let me observe just on thursday, I'm pretty well screwed.
How essential is the observation? Any thoughts/wonderings/advice? Also, if anyone has done/is doing/has applied, any advice on the interview?
Thank ye all
