So I guess I have a few questions in one really, so here goes:
I have just started my first module towards an English Language and Literature degree with the Open University. When I'm finished, I want to go on to do my teacher training and become a secondary school teacher of English. I'm worried that I won't get onto a PGCE with a qualification from OU - I feel that it's not valued as much as a brick university degree (if that makes sense - do you agree?)
So my plan is to do 2 years with OU and then top up for my 3rd year at a brick university. The problem is however, I only have 2 GCSEs at grade B (through no fault of my own - My Mother took me out of school and only put me through my English GCSE, I did my Maths whilst working as a TA at a school). So I am worried that no university will even consider taking me on. I know that I'm capable of doing my 3rd year AND a PGCE but I don't have the GCSEs or A Levels to show for it.
What are your thoughts? Help?
