Mathematics GCSE at The Littlehampton Academy
Mathematics is a very useful and interesting subject relevant to most subjects and needed in almost every job. If you can achieve a minimum grade C it will definitely enhance your future prospects. Making the step up from grade D to grade C will be hugely valuable. Improving your previous grade and working towards a C grade will help build confidence and demonstrate determination.
This course is specifically designed for post-16 students who wish to improve on a previous grade gained. You will study the Edexcel Linear specification and will be given the opportunity to work through past papers so your strengths and areas needing improvement can be identified and worked on as needed. The course aims to help you focus on what and how you learn and so improve performance. The course will involve independent study, use of ICT and some short investigations designed to consolidate knowledge of a topic.
Any GCSE Mathematics grade plus a strong desire to improve.
Two examinations, one calculator and one non-calculator.
The key skills learnt at this level are highly valued by employers and give more opportunities for development in the workplace. Many employers and universities will require GCSE Mathematics at grade C or above.
