GCSE Maths

Full Time

About the course

GCSE Resit: This option is aimed at students who narrowly missed grade 4/C in Maths – either at school or in College last year. This is a revision course, moving very quickly through the topics and providing lots of exam practice before the exams in November.

GCSE (one year): This is for students who need a complete revision of GCSE Maths over a year to prepare them for the exams.

These courses have proved to be successful over recent years, and are offered on both sites.

Entry requirements

November resit GCSE AQA: grade 3/D or higher (your predicted grade should be a 4/C or higher)

One year course: 2/3/D

Where next?

GCSE Maths is an extremely important qualification. It is highly valued by employers, and required by many universities for Higher Education courses. New College believes it is important for any student who does not have GCSE Maths at grade 4 or grade C to study on a course with the aim of improving their mathematical skills.

Work experience and employability

This course does not contain a specific work experience component, but has other activities to help you develop employability skills. If you would like to undertake a work placement alongside your studies, our Employability Team can help.

What additional resources will I need?

You will need a scientific calculator, preferably a Casio fx 85, which includes a fractions button. You can buy a suitable calculator from the Maths department. You should also have basic stationary and a ruler, protractor and a compass.
