What are GCSE's?


GCSE's are the results that you receive after you sit your exams at secondary school.

Your GCSE's are essential to get you into college, apprenticeships and help you when looking and applying for jobs. 

If you get a grade 3 or below in Maths or English, you may be required to resit these exams in college along side your chosen college course.
