Failed the CELTA application

Unread post by pepper » 05 Apr 2011, 09:21

Hi
I failed the CELTA application and didn't get onto the course. Am concerned now that this is not the vocation for me. I was unable to receive feedback on the sections that I got wrong, but was told there were omissions and mistakes made. Is it worth applying to other centres? I have subscribed to an online grammar course in the meantime.
Thanks

Although they won't give you feedback on individual questions, they should give you a brief summary of your weaknesses and ideas on how to improve them.

It's certainly worth applying for other CELTA courses, as each centre sets its own criteria, often based on how popular each course is.
