Mathematics GCSE at Thomas Rotherham College (TRC)
All students taking GCSE Maths must take at least 3 other subjects.
It is essential to have a GCSE Maths qualification for entry to university, teaching and many other careers.
Some courses at university require a grade 6/B in GCSE Maths, so students who have a grade 4/C should consider taking GCSE Maths to improve their grade if appropriate.
If students are in any doubt they should seek careers advice.
Statistics and data handling, number and money, algebra, geometry and graphs.
Grade 3 at GCSE Maths.
Any student who achieves below a Grade 3 may be asked to complete a ‘stepping stone’ qualification for a year before starting the GCSE course.
Students are given the opportunity to sit the GCSE exam in November. They get the results for the exam in January. Any student who still needs to improve their grade will then get another opportunity to resit the exam in June.
A scientific calculator and drawing instruments are essential. These can be purchased through TRC at a discount.
You could take this course to prepare for advanced level courses.
