    I've applied for Classics and English, and I was thinking about becoming an English teacher (not so much now, but it's still handy to know), so I was wondering if a joint honours degree still means that you're qualified for one subject or the other.
    At King's the degree is 75% Classics and 25% English, so would the 25% of a degree be enough? This is probably a silly question, but I actually have no idea...

    No. You need at least 50% of your degree to be in the subject you want to teach.
