Core Maths is a course for those with a GCSE Mathematics grade 4 or above who want to keep up their valuable maths skills but who are not planning on taking A Level Mathematics.

At the end of the two year course, you will have achieved a Level 3 qualification, similar to an AS.

The course not only supports your work in other subjects involving maths content at A Level, but is also designed to deepen and extend your mathematics and be better prepared for higher education and employment.

Core Maths will help you to understand and apply clear, mathematical reasoning to real-life problems. You will also analyse and interpret data in various contexts and confidently deal with everyday financial maths.

What Our Students Say

I like studying Core Maths at Carmel because the department is really supportive, I know that if I need help with my work I can always go and see my teacher. The Core Maths course is very useful and helps me with my BTEC Business because we cover similar topics, which helps with my exams. I would recommend this course because you develop skills for everyday life and it is a practical course that you will be able to use in the future. I like the fact that at Carmel there is a community feel which is developed during lessons in the first term. After Carmel, I hope to enrol on a Degree Apprenticeship in Business Management with a leading company.
