Course Summary

Our GCSE Maths evening class is aimed at adult learners (aged 19+), who are seeking a grade C in order to progress with their job or to gain access to another course.  It is a Foundation Tier course which will bring your level of mathematics up to a standard expected by most employers.  Some of our learners also take this course so that they can help their children with maths.

This course is free (unless you already possess a pass grade at C or above in the subject, in which case fees will be £724 subject to concessions).

Please be aware that we only permit you to study either GCSE English or Maths in one academic year.

Entry requirements

You will need to achieve Level 2 on our computer-based assessment of your numeracy skills.

Course Content

You will cover work on number, shape, space and measure, geometry and statistics. You will also develop skills in problem solving and in recording your working-out in a clear and logical way.

How will I be assessed?

There are two examinations at the end of the course. One is a non-calculator exam and a calculator is allowed in the other.

Assessment of your progress will be made throughout the year by your lecturer. There is no coursework for Maths GCSE.

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

You will need a scientific calculator, a pair of compasses and a protractor in addition to the usual pens, pencils, paper and ruler.  We also ask you to buy a course textbook.  In addition, you may find a GCSE Revision Guide of help.

Access to a computer is also useful to enable you to benefit from some web-based resources.

What can I do after this course?

A grade C in Mathematics is often a requirement for many courses or careers. A number of our learners also undertake this course so that they can help their own children with their work in mathematics.
