Graduated but considering doing another module Watch

Hi all,

I have just graduated with a 2.1 Open (unnamed) degree from the OU. Module details as below:

60 points transferred credit from earlier university study (Level 1)
The Arts Past and Present (60 credits) (Level 1)
Childhood (60 credits) (Level 2)
Worlds of English (60 credits) (Level 2)
Children's Literature (60 credits) (Level 3)
20th Century Literature: Texts and Debates (60 credits) (Level 3)
= 360 credits total

I'm hoping to be a primary school teacher, applying for teacher training entry 2016/17, and I chose these modules specifically with that aim in mind, sort of an English with Childhood Studies degree.

But I'm worried about the 60 credits that I transferred from earlier study. This was at Manchester Metropolitan University where I studied for a year, 10 years before graduating from the OU. I worry that PGCE providers and future employers will think I'm one module short of a proper degree! Even though the 60 points I transferred are only at level 1 (which doesn't even count towards your degree grade) and the OU have awarded me the 2.1.

What do you think, would you consider doing another module in place of the 60 transferred credits? Thank you.
