Core Maths

Core Maths is a one year course, which offers a continuation of mathematical study for students not suited to A-Level Maths.

This course is a Level 3 qualification, and allows any student with a grade 5 or above to continue studying maths at a post-16 level.

The Core Maths course is designed to be a practical course focusing on real life maths, including problem solving using mathematical ideas that you have met while studying GCSE maths.

You will study aspects of financial maths, statistics, the use of technology applied to problem solving and more algebraic techniques.

This course is an ideal accompaniment to Level 3 science courses, Business Studies courses and Social Science courses, and will give you a solid grounding in the techniques required for these subjects post A-Level.
