Study English and maths post-16
Any student that leaves school without a Maths and English GCSE, will be required to resit the exam as part of their on-going education. This includes individuals who are:
- Starting a new study programme of 150 hours or more
- Aged 16 to 18
- Aged 19 to 25 if they have a Learning Difficulty Assessment or Education and Healthcare Plan, who do not hold a GCSE grade A*-C or equivalent qualification in maths and/or in English
In addition full time students (those on a study programme of at least 540 planned hours if age 16 to 17 or at least 450 hours if age 18) starting their study programme who have a grade D GCSE or equivalent qualification in maths and/or English must be enrolled on a GCSE or approved IGCSE qualification, rather than an approved stepping stone qualification.
