The online GCSE Maths course offers you flexibility. You can study at times that are convenient for you, as long as you stick to the weekly course calendar. You need to be disciplined and motivated in your approach in order to keep to the deadlines and achieve success in your exams. You are expected to do a substantial amount of work on your own and need to set aside approximately six study hours per week.
Key Areas of Study
- Ratio and proportion
- Probability and statistics
There will be regular tests throughout the course, as well mock exams in order to assess your progress.
The GCSE course is assessed by three externally set exam papers (each 1.5 hours), which are all taken at the Enfield Centre at the end of the course.
Paper 1 - non-calculator
Paper 2 and 3 - calculator
The three papers carry equal weighting. The final grade awarded is based on the overall mark gained.
We expect students to have a grade 3 in GCSE Maths or Level 2 Functional Skills Maths. Adults with no previous qualifications in mathematics are also welcome to apply.
We require all applicants to complete an online application form, an initial assessment, diagnostics and a short interview. All applicants will also need to attend Leeds City College to enrol. so that we can assess whether the course is suitable for them. We may advise studying Functional Maths first, if appropriate, before progressing to GCSE Maths.
