    Hi all,

    I really enjoyed maths at GCSE, I was on foundation and I got a grade 5, obviously that's not enough to get onto a level but I really would like to continue my maths in some way. Does anyone know if there's any alternatives to a level I might be able to undertake?

    I've thought about doing some AS level stuff in my spare time and documenting it in some way, but I'm not sure if this would be helpful in any way.

    Thanks very much.

    there's a qualification called Level 3 Core Maths that you could attempt? I don't know much about it, but it is less than A-level but more than a GCSE. Alternatively could you sit higher GCSE maths that will allow you to continue to full A level maths in the future?

    Edexcel (Mathematics in Context), AQA (Mathematical Studies) and OCR (Core Maths) offer some Level 3 maths qualifications that you might want to look in to. They're worth an AS level, aimed people like yourself who want to continue studying maths with at least a strong pass at gcse
