    Hi everyone...

    So I have just competed my BA in early childhood...now I had the intention to apply for school direct next Sept (giving me time to re-bloody-sit my GCSE Biology...however it has dawned on me that applications for next years intake open on the 14th of Oct and I'll need to of done my science by then...yeah impossible...Having been to my local uni's open day it was suggested that I apply to do my Masters in Education (early years), as I don't need the gcse's, skills test...and that my 2:1 would be ample enough as well as my 12 years experience within early years...Question - would you take your time and get science done, skills test and do schools direct for 2018 entry or apply and begin the Masters in April of next year??Note: I'm having a baby in Jan 2017 so hence the application date being April 2017, thought whilst on Mat leave I could make a good start on the modules...Thanks in advance....Kate

    It really depends on your circumstances and what works best for you. I don't think it matters in terms of where your career is going and where all this will lead you so you (and your other half?) need to work this out.
