I only got 7 out of 12 which isn't great considering I've booked my numeracy test for January I find mental maths really hard because my mind just processes the numbers really slowly. I think we only get 10 - 20 seconds to answer the questions in the real test, which isn't a lot of time. I spent at least a minute just reading each question, and another minute or two trying to solve them.

Why would someone with a degree in maths become a teacher?
I doubt this is going to make a significant impact on employing teachers.

Some people enjoy teaching. Some are even naturally born teacher.

Some get paid lots to teach with accommodation and food provided, utility bills, private insurance paid for, gym and swimming pool next door so why not? That doesn't inlcude the 16-17 weeks holiday if you work in the indie sector. All of those before the actual enjoyable teaching with able students.

Thoughts on the info TSR has on Teacher Training? Answer this:
https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/L3QYWJ37
(This survey was at the bottom of that article so I thought I'd post it here too )


For anyone looking for more info about QTS skills tests and how to take them, I'd suggest looking at this thread (which I need to update):
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=2196344

I didn't read question 8 properly so got 11/12
