When it comes to taking examinations, especially GCSE’s, it is important to revise each topic and module in as much detail as possible in order to achieve a high grade. Whether you have a clear idea of the career path you wish to embark down, or you are keeping your options open, your GCSE results strongly affect your further education and future career plans.
It can be easy to forget just how important it is to achieve a satisfactory grade in maths, english and science. For the majority of jobs, a minimum grade of a C is essential in each of these core subjects, so to avoid the disappointment of being rejected for a job purely on this basis, do some research beforehand to ensure you know what grades to aim for. This way, you can spend extra time revising on your weaker subjects to ensure a passing grade.
A high grade in English doesn’t mean you have to go on to become an English Teacher, and so on for maths and science. Having a grade C or above on the three subjects is something almost all employers- from the RAF to midwifery, look for when recruiting, and some wont even consider your application at all without a minimum pass. Below are some of the ways these subjects are used unknowingly throughout day-to-day life.
It may be unlikely that you will need to calculate pi or solve trigonometry equations as a chef, but learning basic maths skills at GCSE level help to build up essential skills that are used on a daily basis. Skills such as problem solving, analyzing data, communication, logical thinking and attention to detail. Simple math skills are used everyday in the form of shopping, baking, journey planning and driving.
Whether it is chemistry, physics, biology or a mixture of the three, science sparks and develops our natural curiosity to explore and learn about the world around us. As we encounter science in our every day lives, understanding basic studies develops our awareness of difference climates, forces, and how things work. As science is a very hands-on subject, it teaches and strengthens research, observation and analyzing skills through conducing experiments and forming conclusions, and this encourages the brain to think independently and outside the box.
The English language is the number one spoken language in the UK, and third in the world, therefore it is an important way of communicating not just in school and everyday life but also internationally. English Language and Literature encourages us to use our imagination and sparks creativity, teaches us essential social and language skills, reading and writing, and how to communicate effectively.
When considering about your future career path, make sure your further education plans reflect that. For help with your core subject GCSE’s see our online courses here.
