I am about to apply to join one of the several PGCE Media Studies courses around the UK and I am concerned my lack of a GCSE or equivalent in maths is going to prevent me from getting onto the course. I have 20 years professional experience in publishing and a degree in Communications from Goldsmiths. I also have hundreds of hours classroom experience as a TEFL teacher. Is it so black and white regarding the maths requirement do you think, or is there some discretion shown? Any advice most welcome.
