i am in year 12 at the moment studying
and government and politics
i want to be an English teacher in the future but i dont know what to do now
i have been told that i don't have an English lang gcse but i have an edexcel certificate which i did not know because my previous school did not tell me. I only have a gcse in English lit which i got a B, but now my teacher is telling me that i have to drop English A level and do the gcse english lang and carry on with my other A level. i am doing fine in all my subjects and am predicted As but this is putting me down a lot, what's worse is that my private school did this to me and it's all there fault am in this position
my question is can i still become an English teacher with just an AS in English lit? i am planning to take English as an AS since i can't do it this year but am going to do it in year 13
would universities accept this? for example uni's like kings college, UCL etc
thanks in advance
I think most Universities will want English to A2, but you may also find that some want English Language as well. UCL want a B grade English Language for English. I would suggest that you speak to your teacher about this, and explain to them what you want to do and why you want to carry on with English Lit.
