    Hi guys,

    I have an joint undergraduate degree in Anthropology and Politics. I am currently studying for a masters in Evolutionary Psychology. After my masters would I be able to get on a Secondary Biology PGCE? Does anyone have any experience of anyone in a similar position? Anthropology and Evo Psych are both based on biology (evolutionary theory).

    Anyone have any idea?

    Thanks guys.

    Psychology PGCE - Yes, just about.
    Biology PGCE - No.

    Your degree needs to be at least 50% of your chosen subject.
    You could offer/opt to do an SKE (Subject Knowledge Enhancement) course and they may offer you Biology after that. Or maybe they're so desperate for Science teachers they'll take anyone.

    Find providers you like and ask them. Easiest way to get your answer.
