    So I started my level 3 apprenticeship in childcare two weeks ago, I was enjoying it up until now when they said I can't carry on bcos I need above C grade for maths and English, I got Ds on both, so today was my last day unfortunately, now I'm stuck bcos it took me so long to get this job,
    I found out from a college that I can apply in September to do retakes next year, is there any way I can do it now or is there any other way about it, any advice to do something will be helpful thanks

    Hey there,

    You can always get yourself a tutor or teach yourself and sit the exams at a private centre. So sitting exams at a private exa centre you'd have to just go in and sit the exams, you won't be taught by anyone.

    Here's some tips for your Maths GCSE: All I can say is past paper questions. Only start doing the past paper questions once you are sure you have covered every topic.
    • 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
    Not sure if you're talking about English Language or English Literature...

    English Language: Practise your writing skills, reading also helps build your vocabulary. I found it really useful to read the newspaper daily and analysing them.

    English Literature: Make sure you are confident with the books you are studying. Try and summarise the books you know in bullet points and check if you have covered each important section. Analyse every single thing in the poem, each little bit has a meaning. Try to compare different poems.

    You can always use the TSR Study Resources, pretty helpful revision material on there. Also there is a very useful Study Planner on TSR which you may use, if you find that timetables are something you don't stick to then make a list of things to do per day/week and tick it off as you go along.

    Hope this helps.
