This course is for anyone wishing to improve their mathematical skills and gain a nationally recognised qualification, which is a frequent requirement of employers and an entry requirement for many institutions of higher education.

You will study the comprehensive and varied syllabus of the Edexcel GCSE mathematics (9-1). There are two tiers of entry, Higher and Foundation. Learners will be advised which tier is more suitable.

The course covers statistics, numbers, geometry and algebra.

All applicants will be required to undertake an interview and a diagnostic assessment. Successful applicants will need to buy a scientific calculator, mathematical drawing equipment and a text book. Advice on these will be given in the first lesson.

There will be two exams held in June. All part-time learners starting their course in September will be allocated a tutor who can provide support and guidance. You will be expected to complete up to two hours’ homework each week.

One three-hour session per week. Available dates and times include:

Monday (foundation): 12.30-3.30pm (Highbury Campus)

Tuesday (higher): 5-8pm (Highbury Campus)

Tuesday: 5-8pm (Arundel Campus)

Wednesday: (foundation): 9am-12.15pm (Highbury Campus)

Thursday: (foundation): 5-8pm (Highbury Campus)

GCSE maths is useful for all subject areas where there is a numeracy requirement and is a significant qualification for career opportunities. Numerical skills are important in most jobs. Learners can also progress to AS maths if a suitable grade is obtained.
