IN RESPONSE to the letter "Maths test is a breach of contract" from David Townsend (TES, December 24), I wholeheartedly agree. As a student in the third year of the four-year BA Hons QTS, I also fulfilled al the criteria to enter teacher training and find now that the goalposts have been moved, practically to the other end of the pitch!
