How do you even know that they all passed GCSE Maths? I never talked about GCSE grades with my uni peers, as they aren't particularly relevant once you get to degree level.

Some jobs may require you to have GCSE Maths even after getting a degree, so you might want to keep at it.

Hey Gillzy!

We all have our own strengths and weaknesses. I know for one I'm terrible at art and definitely maths! I'm sure you exceed in other areas which they don't. There is no need to feel stupid at all. I know I sometimes find myself thinking I'm inferior to others when I'm sat in lectures or seminars but then I think about my own personal strengths and that we aren't all perfect at everything.

I would definitely keep trying to pass though, as even with a degree, employers still look for English and Maths GCSEs.

Oh, and if your friends have mocked you in any way about this, they aren't friends!

I hope that helped!
