As a student at Abbey Manor College, it is our expectation that you will achieve GCSE 9-5 (previously A-C) grades in both English and Maths. This will be made possible through a combination of small group teaching, individualised learning and targeted support. These GCSEs combined with a BTEC Level 2 qualification in your vocational subject will enable you to study at Level 3 in Further Education and progress to university.
The Mathematics qualification you will study is AQA GCSE Mathematics 4365 at either Foundation or Higher Level. The course provides you with the skills and abilities that will enable you to apply the functional elements of Mathematics to day to day situations.
You will be assessed by completing two exam papers for each Level. The first is a non-calculator paper which is worth 40% of the final mark and the second is a calculator permissible paper which is worth 60% of the final mark.
