    I went to university later in life to study my profession and realized that have several years work experience I was already ahead of my peers so I opted to go straight to an MA instead of completing my last year.

    I now want to do a PGCE but am worried about the lack of undergrad degree (the worst thing is I was only 60 credits off the undergrad degree) but I have a good MA.

    Do you think that I may be able to explain my circumstances and get away with it?

    As far as I know it's not possible without an undergrad. Best emailing some unis and asking I guess?

    Maybe contact some Schools Direct providers as they tend to take on people with experience, and your masters might be enough if it's in a secondary subject.
    Not sure about primary.

    You might be able to do a post 16 post grad diploma which gives you QTLSstatus... could be worth looking into.

    I have a 3yr vocational diploma and an MA (distinction).

    I have an offer for PGDE primary in Glasgow.

    It probably depends on what your subject is, but it’s definitely possible!
