As part of Bitesize's GCSE mentoring programme, the BBC were looking for students who had previously done their GCSEs to give advice to this year's GCSE students. I applied. And I got a call from a lovely woman who went by the name of Sarah Jane. I had an interview over the phone. An awful lot of questions were asked. I said that I would love to mentor this year's GCSE students and give them my help and advice. I said my key bit of advice is not to stress and not to panic. 'It's not worth the stress' I had said. She seemed more than delighted over the phone, especially when we had a good laugh about a funny exam story I had told her. She seemed more than pleased with me and my rather relaxed attitude. She said that I could be on TV and possibly the radio. She said I could expect a call back in two weeks.
It's now been two weeks.
Where's my call back!? It's utterly shambolic I say! I don't really see why they wouldn't call me back. It's all rather disappointing. I guess there must have been better candidates for the job. Fair enough BBC... although I think you should have given me a call. I wish the successful candidates the best of luck. I guess I shall not be on TV just yet. Perhaps I'll get another chance sooner or later.
