Information for students interested in Primary Education

*BA (QTS) Primary Education (X131)

If you are interested in training to be a primary school teacher you must have achieved a standard equivalent to a Grade B in Mathematics or Mathematics-Numeracy. You must also have achieved a B in the GCSE examination in any of the following: 

  • English Language, English Literature , Welsh Language (First Language), Welsh Literature 

Where an equivalent to a grade B in either English Literature or Welsh Literature is achieved, a minimum of a grade C must be achieved in the corresponding GCSE examination in English or Welsh (First) Language.

Equivalence tests

If you have not achieved a B grade, we accept equivalent qualifications such as AS levels and IGCSEs (click here for a complete list of acceptable equivalents) and we also accept a B grade gained in the GCSE equivalence tests provided by Bangor University and the University of Chester.  Applicants wishing to undertake the equivalency test will already have a grade C at GCSE standard (or equivalent) unless all other aspects of their application are particularly strong. 

Further details about equivalency test can be found here. For more information, please contact Rhodri Evans on (01248) 388234 or email
