I was thinking of doing some evening classes to get a qualification in maths, but the place was i going to go to says it is either an entry level or level two qualification, does anyone know if this is similar to a GCSE? :confused:
I never got my maths in that but i think that i should...

    If I remember correctly, entry level would be the qualification below GCSE.

    oh.. do you think it would be acceptable enough if i ever wanted to teach at a college or uni? i know you need maths to do that.

    Which is what I thought. If I was you, I'd try to get the actual GCSE qualification; not some sort of national test or entry level.

    tbh i think the only thing that makes gcses hard is that you do so many, to just do 1 on its own will be fairly easy

    Well bully for you. Some people arent blessed with your fantastic intelligence, and find academic examinations a struggle. But hey, if they find it hard it must be because they're thick.

    There's no need to start throwing insults at me Kermit. All i'm saying is that it's alot easier to just concentrate on one rather than 10 or more and it will probably turn out to be easier than first thought.

    i think ballerina has a point, but using the word 'easy' probably wasn't the best move. i found my gcse's really hard, and i did 8 which is less than most. but if you put the work in you get the results you deserve.

    to the op-

    entry level - below level 1
    level 1 - low gcse [grade d-g]
    level 2 - good gcse [a*-c]
    level 3 - A/AS levels, btec ND etc

    :yes: I agree.

    There are ways to challenge a point without resorting to sarcasm and insults - why I need to remind people of that is beyond me. :rolleyes:

    All i was saying that doing maths on its own will be alot better than doing it with 10+ other subjects at the same time like you have to do at school - so you can just concentrate on the one.

    Maths A level was the same for scenario for me, i couldnt cope with learning it amoung with only even 3 other subjects. Learning maths seemed to just take over my whole brain for the day, so what i was told about the Aswan Dam in Georgraphy would go in one ear out the other

    ''entry level - below level 1
    level 1 - low gcse [grade d-g]
    level 2 - good gcse [a*-c]
    level 3 - A/AS levels, btec ND etc''

    Isn't this basically the same for NVQs as well?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
