If you really hate maths or English and can’t wait to be rid of either or even both subjects, it’s very worthwhile to read the following section.
Even if you have no plans to continue to study either English or maths after GCSE level, ignoring the importance of them could have a devastating impact on your future.
When applying for a university course, the university may well look back to your GCSEs and ensure you achieved at least a C grade for maths and English. University courses such as psychology and engineering may well demand As or Bs in these core subjects. Without a good level of maths and English you may be limited to the universities you can apply for.
