Hi, I have just graduated from the University of Southampton with a BSc Geology Degree First Class Honours. I am starting the process of applying for a PGCE commencing in September 2012 and ultimately aim to work within the independent sector. Due to the nature of my degree, I have been looking into becoming a Science teacher with a specialism in Chemistry. However, I am concerned that when applying for a teaching post the fact that I do no hold a degree in Chemistry would count against me especially as competiition is fierce for positions within good independent schools. As a result I am wondering if it would be better for me to specialise in Geography as my degree is more heavily weighted to that subject. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
