ADULT GCSE - Advise from someone who has done it :)Watch
I left school at 14 so did not even choose GCSE subjects let alone study them.
So I have decided to go back to school and take my GSCE in English and Math so that I am able to do an undergrad degree next year. I have not studied in 13 years and have absolutely no idea what to expect. I enrol at the end of August on an adult learner course.
What do you do in GCSE's? I know younger students in school study for 2 years.. my courses are one year.
So here are the really stupid questions :
Am i studying the same GCSE as Secondary school student (is the paper work, text books etc. the same?
How do I revise and when?
Will I need to do homework?
Will I have to do course work ( I dont even know what this is)?
What is included in course work, how do you do it? is it a presentation? Essay?
Will I have loads of study materials?
Do I need to buy a laptop for GCSE?
Do I need ring binders or lever arch folders?
How much actually goes into GCSE?
Anything else you can possible think of that might prepare me for this would be highly appreciated.
I am currently a manager at my company, god knows how I got here with no GCSE and no understanding of what is involves to get one!
UPDATE - I have decided to do Functional skills and applied for my undergrad degree for Jan 2020!
