Mathematics GCSE at Highbury Grove School

Course description

The GCSE Maths course offers students another chance to obtain a GCSE grade C qualification in Maths that is widely required by employers and an essential part of the matriculation requirements for higher education. It is also an entry requirement for many AS-level and Level 3 vocational courses at IC6 and elsewhere.

Students will undertake the higher tier exam in which grades D-A* are awarded. 

As the main focus of this course is to allow pupils to achieve a C grade its content will primarily be D and C grade maths. There will be an expectation that all students will carry out a considerable amount of work at home through set homework tasks and general revision.

Entry requirements

At least grade D at GCSE Maths. Students without a grade D may be accommodated subject to the availability of places. Students already with a grade C will only be accepted onto the course subject to places and only for entrance to the Higher Tier Examination. This is a one year course.


Assessment is by two final written examinations, possible sessions will be in November 2012, March 2013 and June 2013 (though this session will cover the a new syllabus containing aspects of Functional Maths).
