i haven't done GCSE maths or english in a long time...how to get up to standard?Watch
basically i haven't done my maths or english in a long time. i really don't know where to start when it comes to studying for the gcses. i am 27 and want to return to education. i have left it too late to go this year, but i am aiming to get onto an access course next year.
i would have liked to have sat the gcse exams as an external student, but i don't know where i am going to begin. i need a lot of practice as it's been years. i have an old maths book which is i think key skills level 2 and it has basic maths in it, but i haven't studied any stuff like trigometry, physics, chemistry, calculus, statistics, etc and would not know where to begin.
any books or online resources that can start me off at the very basics and move me up to gcse level by next year? this goes for english too. i don't want to spend a fortune on books, so any money saving tips would be great.
English is going to be a little more difficult, I had a tutor who helped me - would you be able to get one? Two hours a week would be sufficient.
As above; the textbooks and websites such as bite-size are very good.
Also if you know anyone who is doing GCSE's (young family members, for instance), I'm sure they can help you out and you could in turn teach them some things that you know about.
I just bought some secondhand cheap gcse book of Amazon and read through them. You can get some for like £1 +p&p
They are quite well written because they are for 14-16 years olds.
