I've got my AS results in biology, RE and geography - ECB!!! I'm planning on applying to Primary Teaching with QTS, is this out of the question with the predicted grades I'm bound to have? If so would there be any point repeating or should i leave myself with 16 exams next summer??

What are the entry requirements for your course?

I generally go by the fact that you're likely to be able to obtain 1 grade above your AS results at A2. So, if you can get in with DBA and are prepared to work for that, then I wouldn't worry about retaking.

If you need higher than that, then I would retake.

Be optimistic though! Let it be motivation to work really hard next year and get amazing results. Good luck

Hi Saoirsedoherty,

I've had a quick look on the UCAS course finder and from what I can see, Primary Teaching with QTS is available at a number of unis, which have different entry requirements. For example, Edge Hill and the Uni of Brighton ask for BBB, while Birmingham City Uni asks for BBC. Stranmillis asks for AAB, while other unis such as Sheffield Hallam ask for a certain number of UCAS points.

If you think that you can get your grades up to meet the entry requirements for some of the courses, and that your teachers would give you the predicted grades, then I would give it a go. If you think it's too much of an ask, then it might be best to repeat.

Keep in mind that there are a lot of ways into teaching - you can do a 3 year degree and then a PGCE, or perhaps do an Access course and then gain entry to a teaching degree through that. There's also the option of doing Teach First, School Direct or SCITT. Have a look at this article to find out more about the different routes you can take.

Hope this helps and good luck in the world of teaching!

All the best,
Ashley
