Is there such a thing as a grant for adult learners who want to take GCSEs?

I want to take Maths GCSE as I failed it at school and I need it to apply for a university course? My sister who is in Scotland has been awarded some kind of grant that pays for her to do GSCE Maths. I'm in England so pretty sure it won't apply here .....

Check with the university whether they will accept the Level 2 Certificate in Adult Numeracy instead. You can do that free in a college or adult ed centre, and the courses may be more flexible.

I've done maths and english at GCSE for free at my local adult education centre. Best thing I've ever done. Get my English results on Thursday.
