    Hello,

    I want to do my teacher training this year, however I only have an SQA Standard Grade 5 in Maths, which is the equivalent of a D at GCSE, I believe.

    I have a 2:1 degree in my chosen subject (Drama and Performing Arts) and a lot of relevant experience teaching, but quite worried I won't be able to apply because of my Maths qualification - what are the options?

    This. Basic maths and English are a legal requirement for entry to teacher training. You want to have a look at your English too, based on the title of this thread.

    Good luck!
