Just wondering if any of you will give it another go for 2012 entry? I had my interview on the 6th Jan and didnt get the bad news till 2nd March by which time I had convinced myself I didnt want to do it anyway. When the news came I was devastated, felt like a total failure. My sis in law (who is a teacher of 8 years) keeps encouraging me to re-apply for 2012 and the more I think about it I know I want to but just couldnt face the rejection again, it was heartbreaking. I have two small children so it was probably best I didnt get in this year. I just plan to enjoy them as much as I can so that if I apply and get in for 2012 then they will be a little older and I will have been able to cherish being at home with them. We are lucky that I dont have to work but I feel that if I dont try the PGDE again what else can I do? I dont want to work in any old job just to fill my time. I keep thinking to the future and when my boys are at school (3 and 4 years time) and I know I want to be a teacher and have a career and so that my family will be proud of me. I have a degree that got me no-where and have always been in boring HR Admin jobs, what a waste of time study was for that! I know I want this but I am just scared. Anyone else nervous about trying again, or decided they definately arent trying again? Any thoughts, opinions, stories welcome! Apologies if I sound like a depressed stay at home mum with no-one to talk to! Just looking for advice from those who have gone through the horrendous feeling of not getting in!
