PGCE in Different Subject than What I Want to Teach

Hi, I am currently doing an SKE in maths for a PGCE that will start in October. I do not like it and I do not want to be a maths teacher anymore. My degree is in English and I would like to be an English teacher. However, everything is so complicated. I would have to withdraw, reapply, resubmit 2 references (such a big pain) and do another interview and all these things... What are your thoughts? Should I go through the PGCE (I do have the ability to complete the SKE and PGCE in maths if I must) and then apply for jobs as an English teacher with my English degree and my maths PGCE?

How on earth did you get onto a maths pgce with a degree in English?
