Preparing for 


Entry to higher education

GCSEs are qualifications studied over a 2-3 year period during secondary school and are used to determine a student’s suitability for higher education.

Your choice

Students choose what subjects they take for GCSEs so encourage your child to study both what they are good at and what they enjoy outside of English, Maths and Science.

Plan, practise, produce

Creating a revision plan, practicing regularly and producing quality notes during class time will help your child succeed in GCSEs.

When should my child start preparing for GCSEs?

Revision for GCSEs should begin around 6 months before the exam. Most GCSE exams are sat in May, therefore January  would be the right time to start preparing.

What subjects are part of the GCSE exams?

The subjects of the exams will vary depending on your child’s choices but Maths, English and Science are compulsory. The optional subjects can be a modern language, a humanities subject or an arts or technical subject.

When are GCSE results released?

Results are usually released in the third week of August.  This year the date is the 24th of August 2023.

Why are GCSE exams important?

GCSEs are a significant step in a child’s education journey. The subjects they choose will shape what they study at A-level and ultimately what they will study as a degree if they choose that path. Many universities will look at GCSE results on an admission application.

“My children attend learning Cubs and enjoy every lesson. I have seen a huge amount of improvement in their learning as they do struggle a lot. Thank you all at learning Cubs.”
