    Check the entrance requirements, but I believe the min is a grade C. I thought a D was considered a fail?

    And what grade did you put on your UCAS application? It was a C, wasn't it?

    Pretty sure its a government requirement you have a C in English, Maths and Science to get onto a PGCE. Double check in the PGCE forum here though.

    My understanding is also it is a requirement you have a C Grade in English Language at least. You will need to do a English Skills test too. But it can't hurt to double check.

    Agree with the above. You need a C. Maybe you could do a year's work in a school to gain experience and redo your English GCSE at the same time?

    Having a C in English GCSE is a requirement.

    Why do you think that the requirements that everybody else has to meet should be different for you??
