Course Description

Maths GCSE Higher What does the course involve? The course consists of five modules, three of which are assessed through examinations that take place in November, March and June, and two coursework modules that assess the student's ability to use and apply mathematics. Tutors offer revision in basic numeracy, prepare students for the exams and give guidance on undertaking coursework/ assessments. Please note: Late start courses now take place betweeen November and May (This is earlier than stated in the part-time prospectus because exam dates have been brought forward). What is the qualification and how is it gained? At Eastleigh College the GCSE Maths course is offered at a choice of 2 levels (Foundation and Higher). At Foundation level students can achieve grade G up to C, and at Higher level students can achieve the highest grade, A*. Each examined module is assessed through papers divided into 2 sections, one of which is non-calculator. How will the course be taught? Class sessions involve mainly taught lectures, with work packs available and the opportunity to practise past exam papers at appropriate times. Students must be prepared to undertake private study. In addition we endeavour to make workshops available to students who may benefit from extra support. What skills will be taught? Successful completion of the course will ensure a greater competence in mathematical skills. Achievement at grade C or higher will provide a valuable qualification that is recognised by employers, Universities and other establishments. You will also have opportunity to make new friends and gain a better understanding of the maths currently taught in our schools What progression routes are available? Students achieving a high grade can progress on to Access to Higher Education, Advanced level Mathematics or similar programmes of study. Most University courses also require success at Grade C or higher in GCSE Mathematics. What should students bring to the first class? Ring binder, lined file paper and pen. Are there any other costs involved? Students will need a scientific calculator (the Casio FX 83 is recommended) costing approximately 7, the textbook entitled Modular Mathematics for GCSE by Gaulter and Buchanan (OUP) price 16, and other mathematical equipment (12inch/30cm ruler, protractor, set square, drawing compass, pencils, writing paper and graph paper). How many weeks will the course run for? 31 Can students join at any time? That depends very much on the individual and his/her ability to catch up with any work missed. Tutors will be happy to advise and offer an assessment to help determine a students current level of attainment.
