Why is maths so important Watch
It took me 4 years to pass my level 1 and even when I go online to look at maths level 2 papers I have no idea what it means. I have no idea to work out fractions, I have no idea how to work out how to measure. Why to university's ask for gcse maths or level 2 maths when I have a tripple distinction coming up, my level 2 in English, good references and two awards for student of the year
It is worth considering a tutor to aid you as you seem quite capable overall. It could just be a matter of someone explaining the concepts in a different way to you that will help
If you practise more, it isn't too difficult to pass Maths GCSE.
For example you will really struggle with Algebra if you do not have a firm grasp of BODMAS
Or your example with fractions. You need to know how to Add,subtract,Multi, and Divide and know BODMAS if any of those are lacking you will struggle with fractions.
Think of Maths like a ladder you wouldn't attempt to climb to the 10th step if steps 3 and 4 are missing. For you fractions is that 10th step and your struggling to climb it so you need to check all the other steps are strong before attempting to climb onto the fractions step.
I've told you before I think you're issue is mainly your lack of confidence in mathematics. (I may be wrong)
If I was you I would use Khan Academy. (or something similar)
It starts you from the very very basics (counting 1,2,3) and can take you to university level mathematics if you wanted to. Starting from the basics may seem too easy for you or slightly patronising but it will help you discover if any of your understanding of elementary mathematics is lacking or missing.
But you have to want to give it a try. If you keep telling yourself I can't do it because I have dyscalculia or I can't do it because I suck at mathematics then you have already lost in your own mind.
There's no mention of a specific GCSE requirement, but it would be worth contacting them to check.
tbh-most jobs has a field in maths
We are not all maths people. For example me, I have never been good at maths naturally but I know with a lot of practice I can make it work and that should be the end of studying hardcore maths!!!
Can't wait for that day.
Unis want students to understand how their final degree classification is worked out - i.e. be able to work out what percentage you need to get on your remaining assignments to get the overall classification you need... this goes for the non scientific subjects too.
