Core Maths at Ashby School

Course description

Core Maths is a course for those who want to keep up their valuable maths 
skills but are not planning to take Mathematics. At the end of the two-year 
course, you will come out with a level 3 qualification – similar to an AS. It carries a small number of UCAS points. The qualification is assessed by two final examinations.

Course content

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 day-to-day basis in work, study or life and includes a financial maths 
element. It will also help to support the mathematical content of some other 
A level subjects. 
The skills developed in the study of Mathematics are increasingly 
important in the workplace and in higher education; studying Core Maths 
will help you keep up these essential skills. 

Entry requirements

For all Sixth Form courses, students must have five GCSE (or equivalent) 
passes at Grades A* - C, including mathematics and English language.

Further information

Core Maths is a recognised level 3 qualification equivalent to an AS.
