    But I understand that's how it is here.
    And that is the key point. Here we sit on arses, we are sceptical of drivers without driving licences and practise the spelling of ise verbs with s and their nouns with c, while using lifts to get from floor to floor. Americans don't.

    I don't think that sort of defeatist attitude helps. The problem here is that you're lacking the very fundamentals because you struggled with engaging in mathematics from an early age, so if we're trying to teach you GCSE concepts we first have to teach you SATs and earlier concepts. A lot of evening classes won't do that, they'd expect you to have already understood a lot of the previous topics already.

    It's possible to self-teach most of pre-degree mathematics relatively easily, KhansAcademy provides a good YouTube resource from elementary level to approximately A-level.

    Please understand that a GCSE grade C is a hard requirement for most jobs as a whole, even as an electrician or something, because it proves you're numerate enough to be trusted with doing basic calculations. It's hard to not be on the dole if you're unwilling to develop those skills, and it's not really worth it with a Tory government in power.
