What do I learn?
Maths GCSE assesses students’ abilities to understand mathematical ideas and appreciate and utilise mathematical techniques.
You will study three core units;
• statistics and number
• number and algebra
• geometry and algebra
These units will be assessed through three separate end of year examinations.
You will learn though a combination of traditional lessons and e-learning. You will need to be prepared for extra study and spend around three hours per week on studying away from the classroom.
