    Hey! I’m hoping to apply for the primary PGCE at Cardiff Met. I’m a mature student & I wasn’t great in school! I have a D in GCSE science but I have done an access to life and biological science which is A level equivalent and my degree is in human biology. Would I still need the science GCSE?

    Thanks for any help!

    I wouldn't have thought so with A level standard and degree too but ring admissions for your course if unsure! 😊

    Thanks for the reply. That’s what I was thinking but when I went to apply yesterday there was a check list for math, English & science GCSEs in a C & I was worried if I ticked no they wouldn’t even look at my application to see I had science at higher levels 😬

    Email them and ask. They might require you to take an equivalency exam. If they do require an equivalency exam, they'd likely make you an offer conditional on you passing it (along with the standard other conditions, such as passing your degree and doing a DBS check).

    Thanks. I have emailed them I’m waiting for a reply, I was just wondering if anyone knew as I was hoping to submit my application this weekend. I already have my degree. I completed my math GCSE equivalency testing last week as they said my application would not be looked at without at least a C in maths so I know a conditional offer wouldn’t be made if I did need the GCSE.
