GSCE Mathematics at Downham Market Academy

Course description

n the light of the recent announcement by the government that students must gain a minimum of C grade in English and Maths before they leave formal education, we do offer an opportunity to resit. However, we do expect all students to achieve this standard before they join the Sixth form, failure to do so restricts student choice and limits the number of courses they follow.

Course content

This is a resit course for students who need to boost their GCSE grade. The aim is to develop students’ mathematical knowledge to grade 4 or higher.

The course involves revision of all GCSE work in the areas of :

  •  Number and Algebra
  • Shape and Space
  • Using and Applying mathematics
  • Handling Data

Assessment is by three written papers at Foundation or Higher level, AQA exam board. A grade 4 or higher in Mathematics enables students to enter an enormous range of opportunities.

All universities and colleges and many areas of employment consider it to be a minimum requirement.

How to apply
