Much like a master key, a pass in GCSE Maths will open a lot of doors for you; it will allow you to progress to A level studies in the Sciences, it will be one of the first subjects a potential employer will be looking for and you'll find it pretty difficult to gain a university place without it. If you want to go on to become a teacher then youll need that pass.

Maths enables you to improve your numerical skills, to think logically and to solve problems in stages. It helps you to reason and to recognise reasonable estimated answers before and after your calculations.

If you want to gain confidence in getting that C grade, the Smart Maths tool allows you to answer questions in easy steps with teacher feedback if you go wrong. Marked by Teachers also has over 3000 answer examples from which you'll pick up a strong level of awareness of how to approach those examination questions.
