Mathematics – GCSE

You will follow the course from the AQA exam board.  If you have studied the subject through another exam board, it is important to know that you are assessed on the same skills; it is just a different format.

You will study modules including number structure and calculation, fractions, decimals and percentages, measures and accuracy, algebra, ratio, geometry and measures, probability and statistics.

There are three exam papers.  Paper 1 is non-calculator, papers 2 and 3 are calculator papers – all are one and a half hour papers, each worth 80 marks and content from any part of the specification may be included.

If you are studying A-levels, you will be required to achieve a Grade 4 or higher, but you may also choose to boost your grade if this is required for the next step in your career.
