What will I study?

We study areas of Maths that lie outside GCSE and A Level. It is Maths that can be applied on a day-to-day basis. Included within the course are financial elements such as taxation and interest rates, business related skills using statistics and probability and Gantt charts (used in project management). It helps with many A Level subjects – particularly those that involve a numerical element.

Where will this course lead me?

At the end of the one-year course, you will come out with a level 3 qualification which carries UCAS points equivalent to an AS level.The skills developed in the study of mathematics are increasingly important in the workplace and in higher education; studying Core Mathematics will help you keep up these essential skills. Most students who study maths after GCSE improve their career choices and increase their earning potential.
