Interested in doing a maths GCSE via distance learning?

A maths GCSE via distance learning could be for you if you want to gain a qualification without giving up some of your existing commitments - like a full time job or child care.

Distance learning allows you to log on and study whenever and wherever is convenient to you. You can plan your studies around your existing lifestyle - so that you can gain a qualification and maintain your source of income. However, distance learning isn't for everyone. Here are a few tips to help you decide if it could be right for you...

  • You need to be organised. With distance learning, although you'll probably have an online tutor, nobody will plan your workload for you. You will need to plan carefully and ensure that all necessary work and coursework is completed on time.
  • You need to be dedicated. Without a strong desire to complete the course and pass the exam, it's unlikely that you'll succeed.
  • You don't need your own computer, but regular access to a computer with an internet connection (for example, a local library) is a must.
  • You need to be self disciplined. It can be surprisingly hard to make yourself study when you're surrounded by all the distractions of your home life. Self discipline is needed to ensure that you get th necessary work done.
  • You need to be ale to dedicate adequate time to studying for your GCSE - at least 8 hours per week for each GCSE you want to study within a one year period.
