If you read all the threads on this post you will see that I am an Art teacher and like I said I have not had to use the Maths I have learnt in the teaching of Art. If I was a Maths or English teacher then yes, I would be unfit to teach and would agree with your opinion. But as I am an Art teacher I find your opinion offensive. So in response to suggesting that I am not a fit person to teach, the teaching of Art very rarely uses the basic skills used in Maths. Tesselation, symmetry, grids, pattern, scale, proportion and isometric drawing are touched upon in the teaching of Art. Maths is not used every day in Art. In my post the fact that it took me 13 attempts to pass shows persistance and determination, what should I have done? give up after the first failure? The fact is the test is timed at about 10 seconds, by the time you have listened to the question (and they are very wordy, not just a case of find the percentage of blah blah) it is repeated and you are trying to work out the answer, you can use paper to write and work out on, by the time it is worked out, you have to type it into the computer, usually by that time you have run out of time. The reason I failed so many times is nothing to do with lack of knowledge or lack of awareness, but due to the time it took to work out the question and type it into the computer correctly. Each test I took I was closer to passing, the last 4 tests I was 1 mark away from passing. The other frustrating thing about the test is you cannot see exactly which questions you failed on. You cannot review the test to see your weak areas and work on them! I get the feeling that most of the posts on this thread are judging a test they probably have not had the pleasure of taking within the past year! Like I said previously, I heard of a P.E PGCE student who took 17 attempts, I can fully understand the pressure and frustration.
