Does a teacher need a masters in his/her subject area to teach
you need to get good grades- a/a*.... and you need to get a level 2.1 or higher in your degree
Most science teachers get A-levels then a degree in a science. This is followed by a year of teacher training. Another main route is to combine the science and teacher training in one degree course. This is less common for secondary school. These path starts off with good GCSE results. There are other paths. One of my science teacher colleagues was a geography lecturer before switching to become a science teacher. The main thing is that you have to love science (all of them or at least one of them) and then have to like children. Perhaps at this stage the best plan is to aim to get the best results you can and aim to do a science degree. Then, while at university there will be lots of ideas and opportunities to consider. Good luck and enjoy your science lessons!
THANKS BUT IS A DEGREE GOOD ENOUGH TO TEACH A COLLEGE
Usually, a good guid is to say that the teacher needs to have a qualification at least one level more than the people s/he is teaching. So a degree is fine for teachers in school teaching A-level. A Further Education College or a sixth form college would most likely also be happy with a degree level qualification. If you want to teach a degree course, then most teachers here would have at least a M-level degree or even a doctorate.
