I'm looking to apply for places on a primary PGCE this Autumn, hopefully for a 2012 start, I'm currently part way through the third and final year of an OU degree and have both a GCSE in Maths and English. My dilemma however is that I am missing a GCSE Science qualification to allow me to apply, I should have enrolled on a course beginning the September just gone so as to have the GCSE in hand so to speak as I start my applications, but my funds were somewhat lacking. I've now realised that starting a course this September might not be feasible as I'm aware that most providers require you to have the GCSE's already in place. I'm guessing that even with a distance learning course I'm still at the mercy of the exam timetables. So if anyone has any ideas on what my options may be then please let me know.
