    Hi there, I'm new to The Student Room.

    I've recently been told I can't do an access course that includes higher maths because I need at very minimum a grade C in maths at GCSE. They told me that I should be able to retake my maths GCSE at a local school before September.

    I've been looking since I got home from the interview and I can't find anywhere that I can book, or even get any information about where to go to book an exam. I'm not looking for any training as I have all my own resources, just the exam.

    If anyone has any information about where to go or who to talk to about booking a GCSE maths retake exam I would be so grateful .

    Jonny.

    PS. I'm looking for an exam in Berkshire, as near Reading as possible

    You have left it late to arrange this so need to act quickly. Phone every school and college in your area, speak to the exams officer and ask if they will take you as a private candidate for GCSE maths. They all can do it but not many will. You can do any linear specification as they all cover the same maths. Ask them which examiners they use so you can prepare using the right past papers.

    Hey, I know this was quite a while ago but where did you retake your Maths GCSE in the end? I am from the Slough area and am hoping to find a college that may have me in the evening or something for me to retake it! Thanks, xx

    Bucks Adult Learning offer part time GCSE maths courses in Iver but it's too late to do one this year. Slough Adult Learning and East Berks College do too but again you are too late for this year.
