    Hi everyone!
    Unsure if I'm a bit early but is anyone applying for PDGE teaching in Scotland?? Slightly concerned about my application as I am re-sitting my highers at college this year and I am worried that this will hinder my application. I have my degree and lots of experience but worried about my exam results any advice??

    Hi Jodie,

    I am sure that this will not be an issue as many folks fail courses due to unexpected circumstances. The only Higher you should need would be English unless you are teaching Maths. I am a mature student with both Undergrad and Postgrad qualifications but still have to sit Higher English this year to get in.

    Perhaps addressing the Highers in your personal statement might help but if you have the right personality and the experience (plus you get the highers) I would not expect this to stop you. Of course I am sure it will be discussed at interview but if you are there then its about selling you isn't it?

    Colin
