Course Outline

The AQA Modular syllabus is followed.

Students take three units:

  • Unit 1 Statistics and Number
  • Unit 2 Number and Algebra
  • Unit 3 Geometry and Algebra

All examinations are in June.

What will I learn:

We have the know-how to help students who need to improve their grade. You will revise all aspects of GCSE maths at a suitable pace. We have experienced teachers, and are well resourced. You will get regular practice at solving past exam questions.

Most students enter at Foundation level. We find that this generally gives the best chance of gaining a C grade. Some of the most able students enter at Higher level, giving the possibility of achieving A* to B grades.

There is a small Materials Fee, which covers the cost of Revision booklets. Students need to have a scientific calculator – we can sell you one at a low price if you need one.

How will the course be delivered:

Classroom based.

How will I know how I am doing:

Regular assessments and feedback.

Is previous experience necessary:

Some - either from previous GCSE, or relevant mathematical experience. All learners will sit an induction assessment and entry onto course is dependant on the passing of this assessment.

Do I receive a qualification:

Yes - GCSE Maths.

What can I do next:

Level 3.

What should I bring to my first class:

Paper and Pen.

Are there any extra costs:

No - Included in Materials Fee.
