Having a good understanding of both Maths and English is really important, not only does it enable you to achieve your full potential in your studies but it will also help you be successful in your chosen career and even everyday life. You'd be surprised when good Maths and English skills can come in handy!
New legislation introduced in September 2013 means that all learners aged 16-18, who do not hold a GCSE at grade C or above in English and / or Maths, must continue to study these subjects in Further Education including: College, Sixth Form or as part of an Apprenticeship.
Whilst we would strongly recommend you try to achieve the very best GCSE results possible, don't worry if you don’t get the grade you were expecting at school, or need to achieve a GCSE in Maths or English to progress your education.
If you are starting College with a grade D in either of these subjects you will study a GCSE course. If you start college with a grade below D you may prefer to study a Functional Skills course.
In either case Maths and / or English will form part of your ‘Study Programme’ which includes your
chosen course along with a variety of other study elements, such as Maths or English that make a qualification at Yorkshire Coast College great.
