Business & Economics GCSE & IGCSE Tuition

We have over 15 year experience helping students achieve their best GCSE results

GCSE stands for the General Certificate of Secondary Education, and its purpose in education is to provide an academic qualification in a particular subject like Maths, English and Science.  Students will start officially studying for GCSE exams in either Year 9 or 10, depending on the school they attend, and the subject studied. The exams will be taken at the end of Y11.  

The I in IGCSE stands for INTERNATIONAL and these (similar) exams are often sat by students attending British Curriculum Schools around the globe.

Students can take between 5 and 10 GCSEs at Key Stage 4, enabling them to achieve qualifications in the core subjects English, Maths and Science, as well as several subjects of their choosing, including languages. Though, this varies depending on the school.   

GCSEs are typically studied by 14-16-year-olds, but you can complete a GCSE to get qualified in a subject of interest at any age. The first GCSE was launched in September 1986. These Level 2 qualifications replaced CSE and O-Levels, bringing the two together to provide a fuller range of grades.

How can we help you with your GCSE course? 

We can help most students and especially those who are in the following situations:

  1. If you are moving school, have missed lessons through illness or just need to catch up – we can help you.
  2. If your teacher is moving too swiftly through the syllabus, we can take the time to explain complex topics.
  3. If you are worried about exams, we can set out strategies and explain the 4 different Assessment Objectives.
  4. If you want weekly support during the year, alongside your homework or other revision, we can help.

How Important Are GCSEs? 

GCSEs provide the first formal record of your academic ability and potential. Many people assume they are only important for getting you into college, but they actually play a huge part in your life afterwards. The content you learn can be applied to everyday life!

GCSE qualifications are the minimum requirement and a barrier to entry for most roles and university courses. This makes them arguably the most important qualifications you can do because A Levels will only get you so far without strong passes in the core GCSE subjects. 

GCSEs act as an educational gateway, unlocking access to higher education and further fields of study. They provide the footing of whichever career you decide to pursue but it’s important to note their value isn’t completely clear cut.  

Universities set their own entry requirements, which can vastly differ depending on the institution. Employers can also be subjective, with many external factors affecting recruitment.

How Long is a GCSE Course? 

The length of GCSE courses depends on the capacity in which you choose to study them. In a traditional school setting, you take a number of these at once so they will take 2-3 years to complete depending on the school and subjects studied.
