Is It worth re-taking GCSE Maths again? Watch

Hi, so I've been re-taking GCSE Maths for a while ever since the 2017 GCSEs.
I have taken it about 4 times, not by choice of course, only to get the same result of a 3, not a full fail but nor a pass and always being a few marks off.
I recently did the November resit only to get a 3 again but this time being only 6 marks off!
I plan on getting the paper's remarked to try and fight against the exam board's decision.

Is it worth re-sitting in the Summer? when I will be off to University or Drama School and won't really need the qualification for what I want to study, or the industry I would to pursue.

A good maths score is always a good thing to add to a CV in my opinion! I appreciate that you may find it difficult but it may be your method of revision that needs to change? It's all up to you as it doesn't seem like you want to Drama school but it would definitely help with a Uni application if you go that way!
