Functional Skills Mathematics at FutureSkills @ MediaCity UK - Salford City College
For some students, retaking GCSE mathematics straight away will not be the right path. If you do not gain a passing grade in GCSE mathematics, or achieve a 1 or 2, then you will be enrolled onto a functional skills mathematics course. This will allow you to develop maths skills in realistic contexts and earn qualifications before you try the GCSE again.
- Numbers: finding percentages, fractions and ratios in given realistic contexts
- Shape: deal with spatial problems such as designing the layout of a room/house garden
- Data: calculating ranges and averages and drawing conclusions to solve real world problems
Either paper based exam or online assessment
The next step once you have gained functional skills level 1 is to join a GCSE course in order to gain a grade 4
