Did my interview last Thursday for English and History. Thought it went pretty terribly so I'm going in not expecting anything and was trying to forget the disaster ever happened. Got the email regarding the EPT however (they can't let me forget), and it's on the 19th next month. Since my interview was in early October will they be getting back to me about the application outcome before the EPT date? I understand they get back to failed applicants in like a month, but they keep on the fence applicants waiting for longer? Is that right?
HAHAHA disaster. Don't say it like that! Anyway, I've also gotten my EPT email. Just regarding my availability though.

Honestly the release of the application outcome will probably drag on longer than you think. I know I have not been through the entire process yet but I have been reading up and it can even take up to 9 months or so (from the interview date). You may get rejected after EPT, or even after medical check up.

And there appears to be several rounds of sieving through the applicants and rejecting them accordingly, based on competition with the existing applicants. So the earliest rejection will be in a month or so.

Not sure when will they send out the mass rejection emails so not sure if they'll get back to you before the EPT date. Plus you still got to go for a medical checkup before the official possible letter of appointment so... application outcome is probably gonna take a while.

Oh yikes. I guess I should just go ahead and job hunt in the meantime. I'm going to be even more of a depressed sadsack just sitting around waiting. Mine was regarding availability for the EPT day as well! Let's all hope for the best then!I'll take them not telling me anything as a good sign

Hi all, I just received this:

"Your application is being considered in competition with the other candidates who are shortlisted for employment."

Not sure if anyone from the July interview batch got this too?

Yup, Both for EL EPT and Music Audition as I ticked teaching subject as Music.
First one has both Oct and Nov date available.
If I passed the tests and am successful in teaching application will only be considered for Feb untrained teaching contract which would still be eligible for PGDE Dec 2020 NIE intake on recommendation.
p/s: I have not gone for medical either. Pray it goes well for everyone.

Congrats! Did you received it in the form of an email or message? I went for medical about a month ago but I have not received any update since then. I emailed them last week and they said my application is still processing and they will update me again.

I hope to receive the email too. I guess I’ll probably receive it later than you because I went for medical on 23rd Sept
