Upon completion of this course, you may progress on to a variety of other programmes within the College or elsewhere; many learners complete GCSE Maths alongside other courses of study.
You will be required to meet the tutor. A short assessment will be carried out to determine your level of Maths on enrolment. For some students, an Adult Numeracy course may be a requirement before starting the GCSE course.
Please note, for those students who are not in receipt of fee remission, the examination entry fee is extra. It applies to all students over the age of 19 and is payable on enrolment. You may also need to buy course textbooks.
