The course covers all the skills needed to gain a GCSE Maths qualification. Lessons will focus on developing the skills needed to gain a grade 4 or higher, and will cover the following areas: number; algebra; ratio, proportion and rates of change; geometry and measures; probability and statistics.
What do I need to join?
You do not need any previous qualifications to join GCSE Maths. Whether you are offered a place will depend on the outcome of your initial assessment, not on previous qualifications. If you do not meet the level of ability needed for the fast-track, 1-year GCSE course, you will be offered a place on a Maths Functional Skills qualification instead, which will build the skills needed to progress to GCSE.
How will I know how I am doing?
There are three exams at the end of the course, one non-calculator and two calculator. The exam dates are externally set and are the same nationwide, so you must ensure you are available on these specific days. They are usually at the end of May and beginning of June.Apply for this course
