I also hate maths. When I started working in the shop I was like NO I'LL HAVE TO DEAL WITH CHANGE. But luckily the til does it for me :P

You don't need to worry about maths, my most gracious servant.

You'll learn Beckie! And then once you finish your course you can forget it all again :P I remember no maths. I pretty much have to use my fingers to count.

Managed (with adaptations) to have a shower today so feel less like a screb. Looks like it's a very clean thread today Amy!!

I hate maths with a passion (discalculia) Ha ha I empathise with the finger counting :P Also agree with the learn it for exam and then forget it forever!

Yay for clean peeps!

If you get a good teacher you should be fine, Beckie. I had a rubbish teacher.

^ I found the same, failed maths GCSE first time around with **** teacher then had a better one in college and scraped a C so I could do my nursing. Teachers make a massive difference imo.

I actually do use my fingers to count! I'm pretty sure I have some sort of undiagnosed discalculia because I shouldn't find it as hard as I do!
My current teacher is very good though. Very understanding and patient.
I'll probably have different teachers when I eventually get to do my GCSEs though :/
I have to get through level 1 first. Then go on to level 2 and then I can finally do my GCSEs! I just need to scrape a C and then I can apply for uni!

Finished my maths homework! Finally!

Yeah a lot of discalculia goes undiagnosed mine was only found when I was about 14/15.

I'm sure you'll do just fine getting through this level and the next and enjoy uni-what was it you wanted to do again? I seem to remember something in the caring profession but have a memory like a sieve so...

Thanks Katy. I really hope so!
English will be fine. Teacher is actually pretty shocked at how much I can do so quickly! I had some homework I didn't do so once I finished the first lesson handout (in about 5 minutes) I completed the homework in about 3 minutes.
It is really easy though, I'm not some sort of genius!

I want to be an adult nurse. Hopefully by the time I get to applying, my criminal past will be a distant memory. I've known nurses with criminal records so it doesn't necessarily mean I won't get in to uni, it might just take a bit more work.
I was actually thinking of doing an access to nursing course at college before applying to uni. The people at a uni open day I went to said it would increase my chances of getting in quite a lot.

Ninja post amy! Thank you :)

If you do an access course do you have to do maths GCSE?

I'm in Uni and I don't have maths GCSE at a C or English GCSE for that matter. I did a adult nurmeracy certificate at Level 1 and Literacy certificate at level 2. Although I did do some maths stuff when doing my personal training course and the course was level 3 although the maths is probably GCSE equivilant. I don't know. Also, applying as a mature student helps a lot with the lack of GCSE stuff. I am doing a foundation course though, although 3 years it will still be a BSC.
There is hope out there without maths.



Life can be beautiful if you let it.
Step back, breathe and take it in

I asked that at the open day and they said to get into the course, I must have my English and maths GCSES at at least a C. Even if I complete an access course, I will still have to have GCSEs unfortunately!
But that could be dependent on which uni I'm applying to as I know some have completely different entry requirements.

Of course! Credit where credit's due.

I tried an access course last year and ended up having a breakdown and landed in hospital for 5 months.
