Is the level required at A-Levels Maths, or GCSE, that you need?

You can always study MU123 - Discovering Mathematics at the Open University. It's 30 credits and equivalent to GCSE in terms of the level of the topics covered. It will be available to study on a part-time student loan, and because you don't achieve a qualification like a Certificate of HE, it won't impact or interfere with your eligibility for full-time funding when you start at a brick university.

Hi,

Did you have an advanced learner loan to do your access course? If so you only pay this if you don’t finish university but if you finish university it’s wiped off what you owe.. so don’t panic.

Are you sure your course requires maths? I have dyslexia & dyscalculia we found out after I completed my access course this year, but my university course doesn’t require maths - I had 6 offers and only 2 required maths grade 4!

I made sure to find the courses without maths, and criminology at different universities near me all had different UCAS points or distinctions etc and maths requirements so it’s worth looking around.

hey,
No I'm paying it out of my own money as the Learn direct don't accept student financial loans, etc.
And yes they require maths and English at grade C or above or equivalent, for example, functional skills level 2 maths and so on, i don't have maths so its a bummer really, I am 26 so I was hoping as being a mature student they would let this slide, As will have enough ucas points ect. but not sure they will. most psychology degrees require maths.
