Course details

What are the entry requirements?

Students who have previously received a Grade 3 in GCSE Mathematics will take the course in one year, aiming to achieve a 4 or 5. They will have two opportunities to sit the exams. One in November and a second in May/June.

Students who have achieved a Grade 2 or below will be placed into a separate group, with additional support available, to build confidence and to meet their specific needs. They will be aiming towards sitting the exam in May/June

How will I be assessed?

GCSE Mathematics will be assessed via three external exams, 1 non-calculator and two calculator papers.

What extra work can I do?

The more Mathematics you can do the better your chance of gaining success. Some students already own a Revision Guide and continuing to work through this in addition to following our course will be beneficial. Websites such as Century, Corbett Maths, Maths Genie and BBC Bitesize have helped many students.

What skills will I learn?

We provide you with booklets to work through in lessons and past papers to do for homework. As well as whole class teaching there will be some individual study required, since students will have different strengths and weaknesses based on their previous studies. The course will make some use of computer software and internet sites to help reinforce and practise skills.

GCSE Mathematics provides the opportunity to develop numerical skills with and without a calculator.

 

What is the department like?

Staff in the Department are well qualified, enthusiastic, hard-working, caring and sympathetic to students when they have difficulties with mathematical problems. They support students and encourage them to succeed.
