Essential Skills Level 2 in Communication ( English) and Mathematics (and ICT) are all equivalent to GCSE Grade C and are free for everyone. Your local college should provide classes. They last about 6 months, as opposed to the actual GCSEs which last for 2 years.

You could try iGCSE Maths as it’s easier? Or try past papers for GCSE?

Would teaching courses allow functional skills level 2 maths if you went for functional skills? Just a thought if you have no other option..

Good luck

iGCSE Edexcel is easier than regular GCSE.
If your gonna stick to regular GCSE, watch vids on all the topics, then do some topic questions and then do past papers, you WILL do well.

You’re welcome I did iGCSE English language as a self study course..exams aren’t my strongest point so was annoyed when I failed the GCSE version (my coursework was at a C grade). The iGCSE course was 100% exam, managed to obtain a B .

Youtube videos were really helpful when I was revising. Try channels like hegarty maths where their videos can be used for any exam board
