What will I learn?
Students will be taught the full range of GCSE Mathematics topics, including number, algebra, shape and space, statistics and probability. GCSE Maths is an important subject for students and is the benchmark qualification for higher education and employment.
Some students, with a Maths grade of 3 or above, will sit three exams in November, two calculator and one non-calculator paper. The exams will be sat mostly at Foundation level, where grade 1-5 are possible, but students may also be entered for the higher tier, with possible grades 4-9. The results of there exams are released in January, and any student obtaining a grade 4 or higher can leave the course early if they wish. Students who did not take the November examinations, will continue on the course and resit in the Summer, again taking three exams. The Summer exams will be mostly at foundation tier, but some students may sit the higher papers if they wish to achieve a grade 6 or above.
No formal entry requirements.
