GCSE, Level 2

GCSE Maths

GCSE Maths is the benchmark qualification in Maths, highly in demand for promotions in many workplaces and is always a desirable asset when studying at Level 3 and above in any field.

This is a re-sit class for students of any age who have already completed a GCSE in Maths, but have gained a grade 2 or 3 (D or E grade on old GCSE).

This course will take place on Tuesday evenings, 6pm-9pm.

The remit is to remind students of skills they have previously learnt and then boost their competence in key areas to achieve a standard pass at grade 4.

Although the time at college is only one evening per week, success would depend on ensuring that all new skills are practised regularly, and this would typically mean that the student would complete at least 3 hours further study during the week.

Typically gaining the grade 4 would enable further progression in the workplace or support further study where some basic numeracy is required. The GCSE is a well-known and understood qualification, which is in high demand.

  • Already have a grade 2 or 3 in GCSE Maths (Grade D or E on legacy GCSE). Alternatively, a grade 1, F, G or U at GCSE but have already successfully completed functional skills maths at level 1.
  • All attendees are required to provide photographic identification.
  • Learners will benefit from bringing a pen and paper, and may be expected to bring their own calculator.
  • AQA GCSE Mathematics at foundation tier (grades available 1 to 5).
  • There will be 3 exams at the end of the course, all of which must be sat to gain the qualification.
  • There may be an option to take the exam early in November for students who show high aptitude or have just taken the GCSE exams the previous summer.
