    Hi TSR,

    I'm busy putting together my CV and I've came across a small problem. I'm not sure which of my qualifications actually class as GCSE's. There's a few which are in the grey area. Can anyone confirm which of the following are classed as a GCSE qualification?


    English Language - A

    English Literature - B

    Mathematics - A

    Statistics - A

    Core Science - A

    Additional Science - A

    Biology - A

    Chemistry - A

    Physics - A

    Art - B

    Computing - A

    Drama - D

    ICT - A

    Music - A

    National 1st Award in ICT - Distinction


    Linked paired Mathematics – Methods - A

    Linked paired Mathematics – Applications - B

    Functional Skills English - 2

    Functional Skills Mathematics - 2

    ALAN Literacy- 2

    ALAN Numeracy - 2


    I'd class the first half as definite ones, but the second I'm not sure on.

    The second half are all level 2 qualifications so although potentially equivalent I wouldn't class them as GCSEs.

    What about the Linked Pair Maths? Would the two of those count as one?

    All of them apart from the last 4, and the National Award in IT. The linked pair is classed as a GCSE, although it may not be considered as equal to GCSE Maths.
