    Do you need GCSE's to get a job? ...not just like a D. I mean absolutely no GCSE's, I'm not sitting my GCSE's and I'm really worried on if this will effect working. Will anywhere actually have someone work for them that doesn't have GCSE's?

    It isn't impossible to get a job without GCSEs but you might find yourself a bit restricted, and it also depends on what kind of job you are looking for. Most jobs look for a minimum of C for Maths and English at GCSEs.

    Try to look for jobs through connections - through friends and family - to get a first job to build up experience. The more experience you build up, the more chance you have of finding better jobs in the future.
