What is the course about?

The Maths GCSE Course is designed for students wanting to pass the latest GCSE syllabus exams. Maths GCSE is a key requirement for many job roles and passing this qualification demonstrates an understanding of numbers and an ability to work with them. This GCSE places great emphasis on ""doing mathematics"" and relating this wherever possible, to everyday life. Certain techniques and formulae need to be learnt, but the emphasis on ""doing"" means that you should work carefully through all the examples and exercises in order to be able to solve problems effectively.

This course is FREE if you do not have a grade C/4 or above.

What will I learn?

The Maths GCSE course will give you a basic understanding of the four main areas in maths; number, algebra, data handling and shape, space and measure. It will also allow you to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding in:

  • mathematical methods and concepts
  • problem-solving strategies
  • mathematical techniques and methods and their application in mathematical, every day and real-world situations
  • how to reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions
  • how to interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context
  • independent thinking and working

GCSE Mathematics has a Foundation tier (grades 1 – 5) and a Higher tier (grades 4 – 9). Students must take three question papers at the same tier. All question papers must be taken in the same series. Each question paper last for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

What will the course lead on to?

GCSE Mathematics could lead on to further study in Maths, Further Maths, Pure Maths or Statistics at A-level, or other related subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Electronics, Psychology, Environmental Studies or Applied Science.

Are there any links with industry and university?

Throughout the GCSE Mathematics programme, students are encouraged to think about and use maths in a variety of contexts. These fundamental mathematical and practical-thinking skills are useful across all kinds of disciplines and careers.
