As this is becoming relevant as many people are about to embark on their PGCE journey I thought it was worth posting it again 🙂
There is no two ways about it the PGCE is a tough and stressful course and not for the faint hearted! Everyone had told me how difficult it was going to be but through planning and preparation I didn’t find it so bad. Sure there were days I’d cry with exhaustion but seriously you can get through it and it is worth it (hey, you might even enjoy it!).
You’ll find yourself back in university type lectures with a heavy workload, I had come straight out of my undergraduate degree and so this wasn’t a shock to the system to me. Although some of the more mature students did find it difficult.
This first survival tip is common sense: KEEP ON TOP OF EVERYTHING. Simple to say but very easy to forget to do when you’ve so much going on. You’ll have research to do, “homework”, and don’t forget the Masters…
