I'm no longer involved in selection matters, etc., and thus not usefully aware of the latest wrinkles and problems. A career in psychology certainly can be very fulfilling, and qualifying takes less time than for psychiatry, which is an enormous load and many years long. There's no general rule about the odds of making it on a second application --- it depends on so many factors. If the selectors, for whatever reason, considered you as absolutely not suitable, this would presumably continue to apply however many times you applied ( and sadly, they don't tell you that ) ; if you're considered a possibility, but there are just a number of overall better wualified people ahead of you in the queue this year, your chances might be different next year, if your place in that queue was higher. Again, they don't usually tell you, so its really hard to guess.
