Course Information:

Introduction to this course

This course is designed to encourage you to become confident in Maths and to overcome worries that you may have experienced in the past. The subject is in three basic parts; Number/Algebra (not as scary as it sounds!), Space/Shape/Measure and Data Handling. It will lead to three exams, two with a calculator (scientific) and one without, that are normally held in late May and early June.

If you do not already have GCSE Maths at grade C or 4, this course may be free.

Entry Requirements

You will need to complete a short initial assessment and have a real enthusiasm and a strong desire to achieve grade 4.

It is desirable that students already have a grade 3 (D) in GCSE Maths or a level 2 Functional Skills, but this is not essential.

Career prospects

Gaining a grade C or above in GCSE Maths gives you a good foundation for joining many other courses. Maths is needed to study everything from Physics and Engineering to Sports Science. Many employers also ask for this qualification and it is essential for anyone considering a career in Education.

How will I be assessed?
You will have regular in course assessments to let you know how you are doing and at the end of the course you will need to take three written exam papers in May/June, two with a calculator and one without.
Course content/units
This is a linear course, so you do not study specific units. Instead, this course covers Data Handling, Number, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry with three final exams.
