Maths GCSE Resit at Darlington College

Course description

GCSE Maths is a well-recognised and valued qualification.

Course content

The programme is tutor led and you will be working in both large and small groups, in pairs and on a 1:1 basis in tutorials. You will receive a scheme of work at the beginning of the programme which will indicate the types of activities you can expect to participate in. There will be opportunity every week for extra support in the tutorial time allotted at the end of each session. You should aim and undertake a further 2 hours of study at home.

Many employers regard it as a necessity and it can also be a useful foundation for a number of higher level qualifications.

  • Number work
  • Algebra
  • Data handling
  • Shape and space

Entry requirements

We are happy to have a chat to help you decide if this is the right course for you. All students must be interviewed and assessed if they have none of the qualifications listed.


  • Weekly homework tasks & approx. 1-2 hours per week.
  • Two written exams.
  • The exams are taken at the end of May/beginning of June
