Hi NoelleTh,

I was wondering whether you still had the notes that you studied from for the history and structure exam? If so, would you be willing to send them to me as well? I would really appreciate them.

I was supposed to sit the exam last month but I didn't feel prepared enough, so I have now deferred til the Nov exam.

Thanks in advance!

Tip: try opening the books and do a bit of study rather than expecting someone to hand you the answers

Pm me your email address and I'll forward on my notes from a few years ago.

I've forwarded them on to over 30 posters on the forum already & they seem to help get the job done.

Hi,

I have moved back to Ireland after training and teaching in the UK for 6 years. I am currently going through the registration process with the Teaching Council. I'd planned on not doing the exam until April however have found out that I will be paid at the unqualified rate so I am going to sit the November exam.

I've had a look at the past questions and reading list but would be very grateful if anyone could give me any tips regarding preparation, specific books, etc.

any advice at all would be much appreciated.
