The AQA Level 2 GCSE Maths consists of three externally-examined papers.
AS and A level Mathematics is a prerequisite for some undergraduate degree courses at University such as Medicine and Economics.
The majority of employers look for at least GCSE grade 4/C in each subject, so English and maths skills could be the difference between you getting the job or promotion you want or not. People with good GCSE grades in English and maths also earn approximately £2,000 more than those who don’t.
The majority of university courses look for at least 4/Cs in GCSE English and maths as this shows you have a good understanding of the subjects. Not getting a 4/C in these subjects might limit your chances of getting into university.
It’s impossible to go a day without using English and maths skills, and a good level of understanding means that you can have more control over things like your finances, communication, and you can gain a better understanding of issues such as politics and current affairs.
Studies show that higher levels of literacy and numeracy are linked to better health and a longer lifespan. These skills also have a positive impact on your mental health.
