Course Details

  • The aims and objectives of the new GCSE (9–1) Mathematics are to enable students to:

    ● Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
    ● Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
    ● Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
    ● Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.

  • Students either need to already have a grade D in GCSE Maths or a L2 Functional Skills Qualification. Students should be eager to become independent and develop their work skills through the interactive GCSE Maths Moodle site.

  • Students will sit three final exams in the summer term. Regular, formative assessments will take place to ensure students feel confident in the knowledge they have acquired.

  • The new GCSE Maths specification is graded from 9-1, with 9 being the highest grade. For academic years 16/17 and 17/18, learners are aiming to achieve at least a grade 4 (equivalent to a C) to progress to either an Access course, University or employment.
