Additional Information:

You'll have an initial assessment of your current skill-level in maths, in order to determine which is the right level qualification for you.

How will you be assessed?

The first 10 weeks of your course will be assessed via a portfolio of your completed work. Your tutors will also look at the progress you've made, your attendance record and punctuality, your attitude to learning, and the work you've completed between classes.

Once you've passed your 10-week portfolio assessment, you'll progress to the full GCSE qualification; where you'll be assessed via three written exams.

You'll be allowed to use a calculator in two of these exams, and each exam will last 1hr 30mins. Your exam questions will be a mix of short single-mark questions, and multi-step problems.

Please Note: GCSE exam dates are nationally-fixed and cannot be moved. You'll be notified of the dates and times well in advance, and will need to ensure that you're available for each exam.

Where can this course take you?

Once you've successfully completed your course, you could progress to a higher-level maths qualification; or on to a vocational study programme here at Lambeth College.
