I have just sat my third paper for my maths GCSE exam and I feel that it went well. I love numbers and working things out that why at 35 I decided last year to go and re-take my maths exam after 20 years of feeling frustrated with the grade I got after leaving school.
I will find out my results on the 23/08/2018 such a long time to wait I'm really impatient.
I never retook my GCE maths.
I originally took it back in 1978 and I was in a state of shock after that exam because of the number of questions that I couldn't answer.
Up to then I had just drifted at school. Did minimum homework and I never bothered to read the textbooks outside class.
Surprisingly I actually passed with a grade B.
Good to hear Robert.
I was the same at school just drifted couldn't get myself going on topics of no interest but I have always loved maths so when they put me in for the foundation paper back in 98 the highest grade I could get was a D and that's not a pass so I was really frustrated.
Thankfully the new foundation papers these days allow you to reach a grade 5 which is equivalent to a B (good pass). I'm aiming for this grade but I would settle for a C grade 4 as this is still a pass.
I completed my ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence) level 1 this year also Its just a qualification proving you know how to use Word, Excel and the Internet and understand security risks etc. I will do my level 2 next academic year.
I know these two aren't major qualifications like a degree for example but I've enjoyed them both.
Back in 1978, I was panicking that I didn't pass. I was supposed to be taking Maths 'A' level later that year. But!!! This was subject to passing the relevant 'O' levels.
I came out of the exam in shock and self analysed my exam experience. I realised that the reason I couldn't answer half the questions was because the teacher hadn't taught large parts of the syllabus.
A couple of months later when the full results came out and were posted publicly on the walls. I realised that with my grade B I was top of the class!!! There were also two C's and the rest of the class had failed.
