You can take GCSE in a wide range of academic and “applied” or work-related subjects at school or at your local higher education (FE) center. So, when do GCSEs start? Well, they usually start at the beginning of the second week of May (or if you prefer, 2 weeks before the May semester). There are usually 4 weeks of exams, and the May midterm break falls between weeks 2 and 3, which means that most GCSE students will have finished their exams by the third Friday in June.

Most A-Level and GCSE exams begin on May 16 and end at the end of June in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. GCSEs represent a major milestone in coming of age for thousands of 16-year-olds across the UK each year. For many, GCSEs are the traditional final exam on their way to their first career. For others, exams are a stepping stone to exploring a new sphere of learning.

The GCSE score worked on a letter scale, from A to G, with a GCSE C roughly equivalent to a C at level O.

Future teacher-I hope! I am currently at university in England. I got into blogging during lockdown, which is when I became an online tutee too! I love blogging and love tutoring. I'm also a total maths geek. I've been tutoring GCSE students for a while, and this is a blog about GCSE tutoring.
