The College runs the AQA GCSE Modular Mathematics course. This course gives candidates the opportunity to take exams in three smaller chunks rather than one big exam at the end of the course. GCSE Maths is taken as one of two tiers (levels) enabling learners to achieve grades G to C on Foundation, and D to A* on Higher.
We run the GCSE Mathematics course over a year, which means the pace of lessons is quite high. For this reason we have the following requirements for entry onto the course:
Candidates wishing to study the Foundation course will either be asked to take an assessment prior to starting the course, or must have already achieved a D grade in the subject. If you do not meet the entry requirements, but have other relevant qualifications or experience your application will be considered independently.
If you wish to study the Higher course we ask that you are already in possession of a C grade at GCSE. Again, if you have other relevant qualifications or experience your application may still be accepted.
College policy is to recruit with integrity, so if you do not have the entry requirements or you have other relevant qualifications your application will be considered independently. All applicants undertake initial diagnostic tests and a personal interview before being accepted on the course.
For both levels of the GCSE Mathematics course, lessons will be taught in a classroom environment with the group then being allowed time to practice what they have learned. All electronic teaching materials will be made available to learners on the internet via the College website.
The course is split into 3 units:
Unit 1 - Statistics and Number - This unit is worth 27% of the final grade, and the exam is taken in November
Unit 2 - Number and Algebra - This unit is worth 33% of the final grade, and the exam is taken in March
Unit 3 - Geometry and Algebra - This unit is worth 40% of the final grade, and the exam is taken in June
Completion of the Foundation level GCSE at grade C will enable learners to advance onto the Higher level GCSE the following year, which will allow them to gain a grade up to an A*. Attainment of a grade C at either level is often a requirement for entry onto higher level College or University courses. Job prospects are also greatly improved upon gaining a grade C.
