    I'm applying to as many apprenticeships I can find as I really don't want to go to Uni. I have found one for Financial Services however I'm not great at maths and I got a B at GCSe maths after A LOT of hard work lol.

    Hard to say without knowing more detail, but GCSE B Maths should be fine.

    Financial services is more about your ability to read documents an basic Maths.

    Insurance, banking, pensions etc.

    It will depend on what your role is within financial services. Some will be more mathematically based, others less so.

    Your apprenticeship is likely to include some level of maths. Depending on the level of the apprenticeship, then that level of maths is likely to higher, but how much maths content there is will depend on what type of apprenticeship you join. For instance a tax or actuary apprenticeship is likely to have more maths to it than a broader business one. A level 3 or 4 apprenticeship will have a much lower level of complexity than a degree apprenticeship.
