English and Maths

English and Maths are very important for you during your studies and beyond.

BMC is committed to ensuring that our students leave us with everything they need to reach their goals and meet the expectations of the industry.

Learners will not be expected to take both GCSE English and GCSE Maths in the same year.

If you are under 19 and miss the English and/or Maths entry requirements of your course by more than one grade, BMC offers Functional Skills, an effective method to improve literacy and numeracy, for up to two hours per week.
