    My daughter who is twenty is in her final year of University and is on course to get a 1:1 in Education. She has been unsuccessful in all her SCITT interviews. She has 12 GCSE and also studied the International Baccalaureate.

    The main reason is experience, although she has had several years voluntary experience at a local school one morning a week. She also had had nearly three years work experience in a supermarket.

    I have read the National Careers Service guide and they say that most providers prefer candidates 21 years and over.

    Has anyone experienced this, plus, have anyone of you been rejected but successful the following year?

    Thank you in advance x

    Why doesn't she do a PGCE?
    There's no minimum age. You can start a primary education degree at 18

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
