GCSE Exam Tuition
Schools frequently require an A or B grade in a subject at GCSE as a qualification to study that subject to a higher level.
Results in GCSEs are a key indicator of future academic success and are used by university admissions tutors as a selection tool. No university will admit a student to a challenging degree programme, when grades in supporting GCSE subjects are poor. High grades in English and Maths GCSE are usually expected, if not actually requested. Top universities look for evidence of a broad ability across the full spectrum of subjects.
Any student hoping to transfer to the sixth form of a leading independent school or selective grammar school at 16+ will also need to present outstanding grades across all GCSE subjects.
