I'm studying BA Hons education studies at the university of Derby. I 100% want to go into primary school teaching, it's been my goal since a few months into my first year. I'm now in 3rd year and the applications for pgce open soon. I was wondering just how much of a chance do I have of getting into a higher ranked university, such as the university of Nottingham which requires a 2:2. I never really achieved much or even tried in secondary school or a levels so my grades weren't great at all. All my friends ended up in Russell group unis. I had no ambition until about 1/2 year after finishing my a levels and I never dreamt of even going to uni but I guess Derby decided to give me a chance when I finally decided I had to do something with my life. I'd happily apply again to Derby as I'm really enjoying my time at this uni but I want to prove that I can actually get into a top uni.
I have already met the additional requirements in terms of work experience and gcse grades needed.
Providing I get a 2:1 and a good reference, what are my chances of getting into somewhere higher up in the league tables. Any advice or experience is appreciated.
Pgce at a better university
