I'm not really sure what happens if I fail gcse maths. I honestly think I've read it or been told but I keep blocking it out because I'm nervous of failing.

If you fail it means that you might not be able to get into uni or sixth form due to not meeting the entry requirements. Depending on the uni, depends how much they care but as long as you pass and aren’t applying to do a maths or science degree you should be fine without a high grade. However, don’t worry about it, you can only do your best

As long as you pass you’re fine. If you don’t, it does become difficult when applying for unis because they tend to ask how you did even if maths doesn’t relate to your chosen degree whatsoever. If you need any advice please feel free to ask

If you fail your maths GCSE, you would probably have to re take it.

If you fail gcse maths, you'll have to repeat it as its compulsory. Depending on your sixth form entry requirements, you may have to appeal to the sixth form or look for other options (assuming you are going for sixth form).

What do you mean by wait?
In most cases, you go to college and resit alongside doing your a-levels / btecs. This year you'll be able to resit in autumn as opposed to waiting till summer like normal - also, if you resit in autumn, and pass then the original grade will be overwritten.

In order to be accepted by a college or sixth form, you have to have at least five GCSEs, and there are also five GCSEs that you'll have to pass.
These include:
Maths (1 GCSE)
Science
Science (2 GCSEs, or 3 GCSEs if you're doing triple maths)
English Language (1 GCSE)
English Literature (1 GCSE)

If you fail any of the compulsory GCSEs above then you'll have to retake them at some part in your life, if not, then you could appeal for them.

My sister got accepted at her college and failed maths but unis tend to reject those that failed. You do get a chance to retake if needed.
Because it’s gcses, it’s easier to do well in it even if you’re not the best at maths. Perhaps do a maths paper once a week and then within ur class the teacher should go through the answers or if your teacher doesn’t do past papers with you, search up videos of the paper explaining it. To truly do well, you need your maths teacher to make you do last papers every week and then going through it. You’ll realise that all of the exam questions are similar.
What exam board are you doing?

I’m studying a Maths degree (2nd year undergraduate) and I am an online tutor. If you don’t do very well in GCSE Maths I would be happy to help you through Skype. To be honest I have been struggling to find students because of the schools being closed due to the pandemic, if you are interested please let me know.
