It is a Government requirement for students to have achieved a Grade 4 in their GCSE maths and English by the time they leave education. In an ideal world, a student will achieve this grade whilst they are at school, ready to start Further Education in September. However, even with the best intentions sometimes this doesn’t happen.
If you do not achieve your GCSE maths and/or English at Grade 4 or above you will have to re-sit your exams at College. GCSE maths and English lessons will be a compulsory timetabled element in your study programme, ensuring you still get the support you need to pass your exams and achieve that Grade 4.
