Basics First – What are GCSEs?

GCSE stands for General Certificate of Secondary Education. The GCSE course is typically a 2-year programme taken by 16-year-olds. This is the set of exams taken in the UK at the end of secondary education, before completing A levels (final year exams) and AS levels (preparatory).

GCSE Subjects and Your Grade – How Important is Each Subject?

GCSEs are a set of exams you have to take in order to get into college or university. The subjects you have to take depend on the qualifications you want to get, but some are compulsory and others are optional. GCSEs are graded 1-9, 9 being the highest score, 4 being a “standard pass” and 5 a “strong pass”.

There are core subjects that can’t be avoided. These include English Language, Mathematics and Science. There are also optional subjects that can be chosen by students if they wish. Check out the BBC’s list of GCSE subjects.

If you need extra help deciding what subjects to take, you can read several tips on choosing GCSEs or speak with people who already took that exam!

What Happens if You Fail Your GCSEs?

It’s not the end of the world if you get a low grade on your GCSEs, especially if it’s not a compulsory subject. You can still go to a university without GCSEs, but it certainly will be a lot harder. You might have to resit them or take a foundation year which will be equivalent to a GCSE programme.

If you have a GCSE in Spanish, there are many ways to use it. You could go on and study for A-levels or apply for university courses in the language. But, if you want to get into a profession where your knowledge of Spanish will be useful, then studying for GCSEs is ideal.

If you know Spanish, there are many career paths open to you. Some of the most common include:

📌 Teaching English as a second language (ESL) at international schools and universities.

📌 Translating for businesses and organizations around the world.

What Types of Tutoring are There?

📌 In-person tutoring is the most common, with private lessons offered by qualified tutors in their own homes or offices. However, this option is getting more and more uncomfortable in this hectic world.

📌Group sessions allow groups of students to meet with one teacher at a time and learn together as they would in an actual classroom setting. Nevertheless, this can defeat the main purpose of tutoring – personalised lessons. 

📌 There is also online tutoring. It has flexible scheduling options allowing you to have multiple tutoring sessions a day. It also gives you an opportunity to find a Spanish tutor without being limited to your living area.

How Can a Private GCSE Spanish Tutor Help?

📌 A private GCSE Spanish tutor can help with all aspects of the subject, from listening and speaking to reading and writing.

📌 Private tutors can provide you with personalised lessons. They will be able to focus on the areas that you need to improve on, making sure that they’re getting you there.

📌 They’ll also be able to help you understand the subject better by explaining terms and concepts in a way that’s easy for you to understand.

📌 They are able to give you practice tests and walk you through any question. In addition, they are able to provide you with constant feedback which will improve your learning process.

To Sum Up

As a student, you might feel overwhelmed by the prospect of taking a GCSE exam. But, GCSE Spanish gives you a sea of opportunities in terms of career. Speaking multiple languages in this day and age is still in demand and you can easily get a high-paid job. You can use additional resources available to you such as forums, free e-books or educational YouTube channels alongside attending classes at your GCSE course. However, it can be tricky to learn a language with dozens of other students in the class and it’s even harder to do it alone.

If you feel lost and don’t know where to start, you can always find a private tutor who will guide you through the whole learning process. They can improve your Spanish skills quickly in order to succeed at GCSEs and beyond. Check out the profiles of Isabela, Paul, Lauren and Joao and book a free trial session with your favourite one.
