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/3 in GCSE Maths or a L2 Functional Skills Qualification. Applicants will be invited in to complete an initial assessment to confirm levels before enrolment.
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. Learners are aiming to achieve at least a grade 4 (equivalent to a C) to progress to either an Access course, University or employment.Careers page
