Do I need to retake Science to become a primary teacher?Watch
So I did my Science GCSE about 2 years ago, and after finishing college I want to go into Primary teaching, however in my GCSE Science I got a 3 instead of a 4 but in English and Maths I got above a 4. I am currently thinking of taking a two year gap year, and I am about to go into a Teaching assistant job in a Primary School. Would I still need a 4 in GCSE science if I have the experience in everything else for Uni? I would be happy to retake my Science GCSE if not, but what would be the best way to do that? Or can I just do it all online? Any help would be very much appreciated.
