Hi everyone am in a bit of a dilemma and need some advice.
I current am a student teacher and have 2 years left. However before becoming a student teacher my heart and everything was set on paediatric nursing, since I done my gcse that what I worked towards. I got everything you needed to become a child's nurse. Got a interview but got declines because I failed by 3marks on my English so I reapplied and it happened again. I couldn't waste another year so applied for teaching and got in. However I am really doubting wanting to become a teacher. Ever since starting teaching I always thought what if. But don't get me wrong I really enjoy teaching just feel in the middle. Do I risk my degree for nursing that I may not get onto again or stay on this course and always be going what if ?

I'm a student paediatric nurse. I think there's a big chance you could struggle to get good enough marks on the coursework if you've failed the entry English tests more than once, and if that happens you could have left your current degree for nothing. Could you maybe continue what you're doing for now but take an English course in the evenings to see if it helps?

Your English needs to be good to be a teacher so whichever you decide on you maybe could do with some extra English help.
