    Have you looked at the ucas guide on writing personal statements. Just try and express why you want to be a teacher. How your past studies are relate to what you want to study. What experience you have in that area. Work experience/qualification. A bit about yourself. Why you want to do the course. Your hobbies. Just remember there is a word limit.

    Not a problem, sometimes you just have to go for it. Before it's too late. Thats what I realised, I kind of said to myself look back at past couple years and realise I achieved not much at all. Apart from jumping from job to job. I looked at what I done for work. Also I realised that I always known i been passionate about working with children. Every since working as as a sport coach in primary school and my volunteering in the army cadets. It's made me realise what am truely passionate about and that I had to do something to get myself in that dream job. The job where am going to be happy to get up everyday, a job that I enjoy. I got 4 years of hard work ahead before I can start that job. But it will be my motivate to get the best grades I can and to give the work 100%.

    It was fine actually, I really didn't think it was difficult at all. There were times when we had 2 assignments due on one day and maybe another one a week later, that was a bit full on for a few weeks, but this makes up for the low number of lecture hours. There was approx. 12-15 per week and we got out of most of them early or they were replaced with self study tasks. I can't wait to start back again, bring on the challenge of 2nd year!

    That sounds a bit full on but I am glad it went well for you, If it is ok with you some tips etc when I start would be great.

    Well done on completing year 1.
