    Sorry, I'm a bit confused.

    Are you an A Level Maths student?

    As far as I am aware quite a few jobs and unis ask for a pass grade (which is a C) in GCSE Maths.

    No, I am not a A level Maths student......... I sat for O level cambridge exam (maths) last year and got my results this year. My math's grade is bad and I want to do the exam again as a private student while doing my A level now.
    I chose Accounting, Business studies, economics as main in A level and computer science as sub.
    What your opinion ?
    should i do the sit for cambridge exam again while doing my A level or not

    You should probably retake the GCSE, if you can get a C you will be in a much better position, both if applying to uni or in finding a job. Best of luck.
