    I have just started studying Economics at degree and I think I want to progress onto a postgrad in Secondary Maths after finishing my degree to train to become a GCSE Maths teacher.

    Problem.... I do not have an A Level in Maths.
    My A Levels were Economics, Business and Financial Studies - achieved A*AA.

    I have a GCSE grade A in Maths.

    There is a high level of Maths in my Economics degree so could I still be accepted onto the PGCE course?

    Anyone currently studying secondary maths PGCE?

    As long as your Economics degree is at least 50% Maths you'd satisfy the requirements for PGCE. Just make sure you pick the right modules.

    You would only need Maths A level if your degree was less than 50% Maths.
