    So I failed maths at GCSE but got accepted into my sixth form college where the subjects I'm studying are completely unrelated to maths. I'm taking re-take classes, as anyone else who's failed does, but I just got an email saying that for progressing into year 13 you must ensure you've attained your maths GCSE to a grade C. So are they saying they could kick me out if I don't get it this summer? Confused 😴🙄

    Hey. :hi:

    Looks like the sixth forms point is that by the end of year 12 you will need to achieve a pass in GCSE Mathematics in order to get into year 13.

    Also some universities do look at GCSE grades, paticularly Mathematics and English Language. I think it would be best if you resit it for your own benefit too as GCSE Mathematical skills are used in day-to-day life situations.

    If you want any help with your revision for your Mathematics GCSE resit here are a few tips:
    • Work through the ExamSolutions videos if you ever feel you feel like you are stuck on any section
    • Feel free to post in the TSR GCSE Maths Forum if you are unsure about something (make sure provide the question and what you have already done)
    • Do every single past paper
    • Mark your papers and see where you have gone wrong
    • Look to do IGCSE papers once you have done all of the GCSE ones
    Good luck. I hope this helps.
