Core Mathematics is a brand new course for those who want to keep up their valuable maths skills but are not planning to take A-level Mathematics. At the end of the two-year course you will come out with a Level 3 qualification, similar to an AS. The qualification is assessed by final examination.
You will benefit from the following resources and facilities:
- experienced, specialist mathematics teachers.
- books, notes, online resources.
- dedicated mathematics rooms, with interactive whiteboards.
- departmental computer suite with sixth form study area.
Core Maths has been designed to maintain and develop real-life maths skills. What you study is not purely theoretical or abstract; it can be applied on a daily basis in work, study or life, including a financial maths element. It will also help with other A-level subjects - in particular with Science, Geography, Business Studies, Psychology, Sociology and Economics.
The skills developed in the study of mathematics are increasingly important in the workplace and in higher education; studying Core Maths will help you to keep up these essential skills. Most students who study maths after GCSE improve their career choices and increase their earning potential.
