  • As previously advised, none of those certifications require maths (or even Algebra).  You can find details on what's required in those exams in the Skills Measured sections of each exam:

  • I was thinking i need some kind of knowledge in Algebra

    longtime ago i was good in it but if you not in pratice then you forget formula.

    I am still good in addition, multiplation, substration and division.

    i done some work in fraction, percentage(which was good before) and some others section.

    i lost bit geometary before you need formules their too.

    finally if somebody guide me what level of maths like i am trying to do the maths pratice in gcse level where i am getting difficulty to get going.

    i mean which years level at least i required.uk
