The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) is a qualification that is highly valued by schools, colleges, and employers. The qualification mainly involves studying the theory of a subject, together with some investigative work, while some subjects also involve practical work. 

A number of GCSE’s have a compulsory coursework element worth between 20% and 100% of the marks, with the remaining marks coming from exams. This means that most GCSEs will require pupils to sit exams.   

You can prepare for your exams by being: 

– ready 

– responsible and independent 

– methodical in your revision 

– persistent 

– self aware 

GCSE Examinations 2024 are expected to take place between 6th May and 28th June
