    According to the government website you require atleast a C to become a primary school teacher.

    I don't know about Early Years but you could always redo the Science GCSE when you go colllege.

    Okay thankyou anyways, i am currently at sixth form and do not have the option to retake, so becoming a teacher would be out of the question?

    does this have to be a C in science overall? Or in just one science subject?

    Problably not. You would need to find out if anywhere close to you, like college or something does re-takes for GCSE science and apply for it.
