Description

Maths is for everyone. It is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping students with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be. This course allows you to cover the full GCSE Higher Tier or alternatively Foundation Tier in one year. It is designed as a revision class for those students who have previously studied higher or foundation level mathematics but have not gained the required grade for progression into other education or employment. It is expected for students to complete their own personal study each week to be successful. The AQA Higher Tier is graded from 3-9 with 4 equating to the original C grade at GCSE Level and 8 and 9 equating to original A*. The Foundation Tier assessments will be awarded a grade within the range of 1 to 5. Students who fail to reach the minimum standard for grade 1 will be recorded as U (unclassified) and will not receive a qualification certificate.

Additional Information

There are no formal entry requirements, although after their Initial Assessment some students may be advised to follow a Maths Refresher course first.During the first few weeks of the course, they can get advice from the teacher and change to the refresher course if they so wish. AQA - Dungannon CCEA - Enniskillen & Omagh

Course Content

The course follows the GCSE Mathematics Syllabus issued by the relevant awarding body (AQA/ CCEA) and covers the following areas: Number, Algebra, Ratio, proportion and rates of change, Geometry, Probability and Statistics.

Assessment Method

3 written exams (1 Non-Calculator and 2 calculator papers) Each exam is worth 33 1/3% of total GCSE. Each paper has a mix of question styles, from short, single-mark questions to multi-step problems. The mathematical demand increases as a student progresses through the paper.

Entry Requirements

Students will be requested to attend an initial assessment to establish suitable level.
