Grade 3 at GCSE Maths.

Useful Supporting Courses

All students taking GCSE Maths must take at least 3 other subjects.  It is essential to have a GCSE Maths qualification for entry to university, teaching and many other careers.

Some courses at university require a grade 5/6 in GCSE Maths, so students who have a grade 4/C should consider taking GCSE Maths to improve their grade if appropriate.  If students are in any doubt they should seek careers advice.
