What will I learn?
Gaining a grade C in GCSE Mathematics is a stepping stone into many types of education and employment. You should take this course if you intend to progress to a Level 3 program, apply for a university course or this qualification may be required by specific employers.
- Maths is about more than numbers. It encourages you to think logically and apply the principles you learn to everyday situations. You will start with the basics, making calculations and solving problems before moving on to number systems, formulae, graphs, functions and algebraic equations. Geometry will be explored, and you will discover ways to calculate lengths, areas and volumes of different shapes.
GCSE Mathematics includes practical development of your skills in the five main topics: Number, Algebra, Geometry, Data Handling and Probability.
You will be assessed in two final exams; Non-Calculator and Calculator, both 105 minutes in duration and completed approximately four days apart. The scores from each are aggregated to produce your final grade.
What could I progress on to?
Achieving a grade C in Mathematics can help you achieve your personal or career goals, including further study at Level 3, university, employment or promotion.
Along with English Language, a good grade in Mathematics is an absolute requirement for any university course or career.
