    Hi, I'm a 19 year old and I'm currently studying an access course at college to High Education as I want to teach English Literature. In my GCSEs I got a B in English but a G in Maths, I have been resitting my maths for 4 years now in college doing different courses and I get the exact same results, a G, not anything higher than that grade. I am dyscalculia and I am scared I will not get into uni without my C with I am not capable of getting since I have this disorder as well as I have ADD. I really need help somewhere, somehow. Please link me to things that may help, if you work at a university please give me answer or some sigh of hope as I am close to just giving up and working at Tescos which is not what I want as I am extremely good at English skills and I love literature. I am begging for any kind of help. Thank you.

    Have you gotten your papers back to know where it is you've gone wrong? Can you get a 1:1 teacher rather than learning in a classroom environment? There is nothing to say you aren't capable of getting it (i know it probably feels that way, i have dyslexic and dyspraxia and know after it kicking you down a lot it can wreck your confidence but don't let it win) , you just haven't found a way to get your brain to understand the material in the right way yet.
    What support has your college given you so far? Maybe ask for a review of it?

    Some universities will look over the GCSE Maths grade for an English degree, but to get onto a PGCE its a government requirement that you pass a Maths test and I believe have a C in GCSE Maths too.
