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, analyse and interpret data in various contexts and confidently deal with everyday financial maths.
