    Entry to PGCE courses can be quite competitive, depending on subject, so if a university requires a 2:1 you likely wouldn't get accepted, or at least not without further education such as a Masters. Your best option is to apply to universities that require a 2:2. If you can only find places that want a 2:1, definitely email in advance to the admissions team so you know your chances.
