    Hi, was wondering if anyone has any insight into what kind of chances I have of being accepted on to a PGCE course with an ordinary degree in Physics & Mathematics.

    I had some issues over the past few years which have affected my grades and was granted mitigating circumstances etc etc, but I'm still coming out with an ordinary degree.

    Just not sure what the likelihood of me being accepted onto a PGCE course would be, I'm looking at applying to maybe 2 school alliances and 1 university to do the course. I've got a little bit of classroom experience and have a ballpark provisional mark of 80-90% for my physics dissertation which I can mention in an interview.

    Hi,

    It seems from your degree and experience that you would be a suitable candidate for PGCE. You can also work on our subject knowledge of up to GCSE physics during holidays and throughout your teacher training. You should definitely go for it. See if you can get at another 5 days of experience in a school. What university and alliances are you thinking of applying to?

    What do you mean by 'ordinary'? Do you mean without honours?

    Oxford might take you, my offer on UCAS says 'graduate' no mention of grades.
