I've been accepted onto a GTP and I just wanted to know exactly how tough it is. I've heard people say that you get thrown in at the deep end and have to spend 24hours a day working! I'm not expecting it to be easy and I know that I'm going to have to work really hard, but is it really going to take up every minute of my life? I know that I will have to do planning and marking in the evening, but is it possible to fit it in around the rest of your life? For example I take piano lessons - would I have to put this on hold for the year or would I still get time to practise?
