so I need advice. I am in my final year and I want to apply for PGCE, but I will need GCSE science and maths. I will be doing my GCSE via distance learning, but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to take both the exams in Jan as I have not started studying yet or if I should wait till May/June, which means I won't get my results by aug and PGCE will start in September.
Any advice please share ?

I would be tempted to sit them sooner, just because I would be worried that if there's a situation like last academic year (with CAGs), you would end up without a grade due to having no teacher to predict one.

Is it not possible to sit an equivalent qualification rather than the GCSE itself?

It is, but you can take the test only for one gcse subject. Some of the uni that i have spoken to said they offered the equivalency test due to covid, but i dont think its worth waiting till may/june when i can take the exam in jan right?
