    Hello,

    I am in my second year of university, studying history. But I want to teach primary school key stage 1.

    Problem? I don't have a gcse in science, only a btec. And my maths gcse is a D.
    I realise I will have to retake these GCSEs after university, before I can do a PGCE.

    How do I go about this? As my local colleges don't offer gcse science only maths.

    Also, when it comes to my PGCE, will I be at big/obvious disadvantage for having not studied a teaching based degree at undergraduate level?

    I don't know about how you'll manage the GCSE requirement, but I can answer the other part of your question. Primary PGCEs accept any degree in the vast majority of cases, so a History degree is fine (I'm applying with a Politics degree) and you won't be at a disadvantage.
