    Grab a notepad and pen and figure out some back up plans, revolve them on what you're passionate about and where your best skills lie, that would be my first recommendation. Don't wait for the iceberg to hit, plan how you're going to react once you've hit it. Is there any chance you could provide a little more detail? Just so I can help you more!

    Hi there, sorry for the late reply. I've had a few other posted threads at the same time which just blew up so I needed to take a step away from the forum for a few days hahahahahaha. In all honesty I think it's just about acknowledging that the career or most things aren't 'do or die' situations. Sure you might have to do something while working towards your goal (Which I'm doing at the moment, working on my projects while working a day job) but even if you fail the tests you can still do them again. Maybe if things don't go your way you could look at becoming a support assistant for a school while you train up to be a teacher. Then you'd have a great advantage because you're already working with kids. Just a thought, I again apologise for the late reply and hope this helps!

    Yeah I have seen level 3 apprenticeships in teaching assistance so that's probably my back up plan, thanks for the reply
