    You must forgive me for asking reallllllly early (as I have not even started my degree yet (in JH maths and music)...I was just wondering about whether studying at different unis affected anything cos some seem to say teaching 11-16 and others 11-18? Does it matter where in the country you do your PGCE as to where you can teach (as I might be studying at Edinburgh and didn't know if there was a different system in Scotland because I want to teach in England)? How hard is it to get onto a PGCE course in maths or music (haven't decided which I want to teach yet!)?

    How much "experience" do unis generally look for? I'm a cub/scout leader and I do lots of summer residential kids camps. What kind of other things can you do?

    Sorry...lots of questions I just like to have an idea in my head about what I need to do then I can start earlier rather than later!

    If you train to teach in Scotland, you are not automatically entitled to teach in England or Wales (although it is simply a matter of filling in a form to get QTS). If you do a degree in Scotland and then do a PGCE in England or Wales, there is no problem. It is impossible to say how difficult it may be to get on a PGCE by the time you graduate.
