    Hi All,

    I've recently finished a degree in music technology where I got a 2:1. I changed my mind about wanting to work in music in my 3rd year and i'm now very interested in doing a PGCE.

    The problem I have is that i'd like to teach a science, ideally physics. I've been told by UWE that because my degree doesn't relate I wouldn't be able to. At school physics was easily my strongest subject but I was an idiot at college and decided to take dossy subjects :/

    Any advice?
    Are there any courses I can do this year, that will enable me to get a place on a PGCE in Physics next year?

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Thank you

    I believe there are Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses for core subjects like Physics, but you may need Physics A-level.

    You could do a subject knowledge enhancement course (ske) in physics. Look them up and apply. You will probably have to do a year long one to get your knowledge up to scratch.
