What will I study?
A 2 year course run in year 12 and 13. This will run as 2 periods per week and can be taken in addition to your other 3 choices. It will help you develop your mathematical skills and thinking and supports many A level courses run at Exmouth, as well as technical and vocational qualifications. The qualification also carries UCAS points (20 points for an A grade).
What can I do with it?
Core Maths is about students doing meaningful mathematical problems to increase their confidence in using mathematics to be better equipped for the mathematical demands of other courses, higher education and employment. Mathematical skills are becoming increasingly important in the workplace and in higher education - studying Core Maths will help students to keep up these essential skills.
Core maths at Exmouth would support your learning in subjects such as Psychology, Business Studies, Geography and the Sciences. It is not a requirement to study Core maths alongside these subjects, but it may help. Feel free to discuss the mathematical content with the course leader of your desired subject.
What qualifications do I need?
Subject specific entrance requirement: 5 GCSE’s (or equivalent) at grade 4 or above with grade 5 in Maths
