Huddersfield New College
GCSE Mathematics

Specific requirements

Grade 3 in GCSE Maths.

 

What will I study?

If you have a grade 3 at GCSE Maths, you will be required to re-sit this during your time at Huddersfield New College.

There is also the opportunity to work towards a grade 5 for those who need to improve beyond grade 4.

Course Content

This one-year programme will follow the AQA Linear specification at foundation level.

The pace of the course is fast and full attendance at the 3 lessons each week is essential for success. A calculator is a necessary item and must be brought to all lessons. There is the possibility of a November entry for students who are likely to get grade 4 at this time.

Assessment

For both the November and May sessions, assessment is by three papers:

•  Paper 1 (non-calculator) - 1 hour 30
    minutes

•  Paper 2 (calculator) - 1 hour 30
    minutes

•  Paper 3 (calculator) - 1 hour 30 
    minutes

Assessment

Each FSMQ is assessed by one 60 - 75 minute written paper in late May (calculator) with pre-release material. Results are published in late August.
