I know this might not be much help but the reason that you can't get a job might not be due to your GCSE's. It might be more likely that it is because you are in 6th form so the flexibility of the hours you can do is reduced. It might be because you don't have experience. Or it might just be the fact that there are hardly any jobs available out there.
As for the money, try to explain to you Dad that you just don't have that much money. It'll be hard but even show him your accounts to prove that you just don't have that much coming in.
Is this even allowed? Watch

If you are over 16 then I don't think he is legally required to house you...That said he is being a bit of a **** considering you don't have any source of income.
Then again... maybe he is fully conscious of this and just wants you out regardless.
How old are you?
If you are under 18 tell him you shouldn't be paying rent, and if you are under 16 that is wrong/disgusting/sick.

As everyone said it is allowed but at this moment in time it's not right to ask you for that much a week as even if you got a job, it'd be part-time as you're still in school. When you get a job, offer to contribute some rent money, but discuss it so that you still have some money for yourself.

hey guys, thanks for the advice, sorry i missed some info:
16yrs old, male.
I have done nothin to upset him that i am aware of.
I am in post16/6th form - Year 12.
As for jobs, i am trying my best to get a job at something i want to do (Which is computer repair), but thus far, like i said no one has gotten back to me.

OP: Isn't the best practice for repairing computers... actually repairing computers? I mean can you not start a little business, advertise in shops, the local paper etc? Something you can put on your CV if nothing else, and it might help get your Dad off your back a bit.
