GCSE Resits

Once GCSE results day 2022 came around, it left many people happy and ready to proceed but there are also many that will be looking into GCSE resits. It is advised to students who have not achieved gaining a level 4 to look at taking a resit or consider other options. The other options include the functional skills level 2 qualifications that are becoming a popular option for learners.

Here at York Maths Tutor we have a lot of pride in the high pass rates that we are seeing. GCSE resits don’t tend to happen for the existing learners that we have. Usually the approaches we get about resits are from new students who have been rather disappointed with the outcome of their GCSE exams and are looking at alternatives. We discuss with the student what is the best way to move forward and what their expectations are in the future. Functional skills maths and English are GCSE equivalent qualifications that many learners go for as it is accepted around the country by Universities and employers. Enabling students to proceed without problems. It is important to remember that there will be some courses that will need higher than a level 4 and in these cases a GCSE resit is the only option. Through us learners will get many different forms of support like many revision materials and tuition, but we also help in getting exams booked. Using the links we provide below, you can book your GCSE maths and English exam.

Functional skills level 2 maths and English are the best option for those requiring a level 4. While there are many things to consider when deciding this, there are the big advantages of a level 2 over the GCSE retakes that we would like to point out.

  • There is less content in the level 2 qualifications to study

  • Results come back faster (2 weeks rather than 2 months)

  • You can sit the exam whenever you like, all year round.

  • You have the choice of sitting it from your own home

How you go about choosing qualifications will most likely depend on your personal situation and what goals you have for yourself in the future.

The support we provide should help learners make the next step in their career paths. If you have any questions on your mind about our services then contact us at York Maths Tutor today.
