It is now a requirement from the government that all students who have not gained a grade C or better at GCSE maths in school have to continue with a course that leads to a Level 2 maths qualification. In this case maths makes out a core element of your programme.
One year (as part of your full-time programme)
Grade D at GCSE maths, or grade B minimum for two free standing maths modules at the higher level.
What will I study?
The GCSE course focuses on algebra, shape, space and measures, number work and handling data.
On all courses you will:
- carry out mathematical investigations
- practise examination questions
- gain confidence in your mathematical skills
Method of assessment
The course is assessed by 100% examination.
We expect you to work very hard on the Mathematics course which is part of your main programme and not an extra. Attendance is compulsory.
