Q: I wasn’t very good at Maths at school. Is this the right course for me?

A: Many adults find that things they found baffling at school are now surprisingly easy! However, there is a lot to cover in 10 weeks and you might find this challenging. We do have other courses over a longer period that might be more suitable.

Q: What can I do if I don’t feel able to complete the GCSE in 10 week?

A: We also offer a September start course that is delivered over 30 weeks with exams in June. Another option is Improve Your Maths class, which allows you to take two years to achieve the GCSE. In the first year, you would work towards a Functional Skill at Level 1 and improve your maths skills and confidence in preparation for completing GCSE in the following year.
