    I've just had the official results on my PGCE. I'm not posting here to boast, but to encourage any who may have abandoned education because of the pressure as a JW, and who may feel that it's too late to return and achieve such goals. In the 1980s I stopped halfway through my B.Ed Honours and accepted a Dip.H.E. so that I could 'pursue kingdom goals' after baptism. I regretted that decision so often in the years that followed.

    After being Dfd in 2007 I finally saw the WTBS for what it was. I've lost a great deal, but I rebuilt my life, remarried and went back to Uni in 2009 graduating with a First Class Honours degree in 2012 at 60 years of age. And now I have just gained a PGCE after a year's post grad study in education.

    I can't even put into words how wonderful this feels. I would advise anyone contemplating to go for it!
