Transcript:

Did you think at any point during the PhD 'well I'm just going to quit this, because I've got the PGCE, if I want to teach I can go and do this now I don't have to put myself through this?'

I've always been really self-disciplined so I would assume that as a failure so I don't think I allowed the thought to cross my mind, I just got on with it and was thoroughly miserable to everyone around me whilst I did it, but I thought 'no, I've got to do this'. The only time I had doubts was one week into it um but my tutor said 'no, you can do it' and then I was going to do it and it was just when and how long it would take.
