Mathematics GCSE (Re-sit) at Mayflower High School

Course description

This course is intended for students who did not achieve a Grade C at GCSE in Year 11.

Students will have one lesson a week to assist them in developing their skills in the basics of Mathematics to achieve a grade C. Students who achieved a grade D will be entered for their GCSE Mathematics in November 2015. We will build upon their previous knowledge, addressing students’ weaknesses and building upon students’ strengths.

Students who achieved an E grade will be advised to study Mathematics for a year and take their examination in June 2016. This will give greater time to prepare and improve their understanding of Mathematics and give them a greater chance of success.

Course content

There is no coursework required for Mathematics and students will sit two 1 hour 30 minute exams. One paper will examine non-calculator skills and the other will examine calculator skills. It is essential that each student has their own calculator and learns how to use it efficiently.

Entry requirements

Below a C Grade in GCSE Mathematics.
