    I've applied for universities & have heard back from them all, declining. I plan to do primary education & I am aware that applying for extra universities is an option however I'm slightly worried that primary education will be full before extra opens and therefore I will not get a chance to do what I hoped to do.

    You first need to think carefully about WHY all the other Unis knocked you back.

    * Did you meet the admissions requirements - both A levels and GCSEs?

    * Did you have enough relevant work experience both in a variety of schools and other settings?

    * Did you write a solid PS stating in a mature way why you want to go into teaching?

    Would it be worth you taking a year out to get any more experience? Time to think more carefully about what teaching involves and so write a stronger PS?
    Remember, there is no rule that says you can only go to Uni straight from leaving school.
