Can i study 2 gcse maths courses at two different colleges at the same time? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Ive noticed that gcse courses seem to have a strict code on attendance and that students are kicked out or dont bother coming in after several lessons. Ive also noticed new students coming into the class.

    Is it possible to do a gcse maths course at a different college aswell as the college im doing my maths gcse. Just in case i fail here. I take two exams i might pass.

    And seeing as gcse maths is part time. Only a few hours a week. Could possibly squeeze into evenings?

    What do you think?


    Probably not since you'd probably have to do the same exam board, or learn two different syllabus plans. Also, wouldn't the exams be at exactly the same time, so you'd only get one shot at it?

    You can study like that but I know that you can't sit a GCSE with two boards in the same session. The exam codes have incompatibility lists, including all other boards' versions of that subject.

    NO. you could only sit one exam and as has been previously said exam codes as one school wouldn't be able to enter you.


    People pay taxes, including myself, and we don't want to pay for some idiot to take a course twice at the same time, when we can simply pay you for an extra year to re-sit it. Which would be cheaper. lol!

    Theoretically you can, but the exams will be scheduled for the same day. This means that you will be unable to take both sets of papers. It is worth remembering that there are two sessions each year - in June and November, so you can always re-sit, if you do not achieve the desired grade.
