I've had 6 interviews for an NQT placement but no success. Despite my best efforts, I keep being told I am not stretching enough (even a poem wasn't hard enough). It's really knocking my confidence as they never say anything positive so I don't know what I am doing right. Also, there is usually someone who is on placement there so I feel I have no chance. I feel like it's affecting my placement and my course because I feel like I am wasting so much time because I feel like they know who they are going to choose before I enter the door.
