About the Course
GCSE Maths is a one-year course beginning in September and ending with the exams in June the following year.
The course is divided into weekly topics, for example, Angles, Percentages, Probability. It is suitable for students who wish to study for the examinations at Foundation Tier or Higher Tier.
You have access to very clear, detailed and well-organised resources. You belong to an class with a dedicated tutor who gives you all the support you need to help you succeed. Your tutor contacts you each week and guides you through the materials that you are required to study in order to complete each topic. Each topic includes exercises so that you can practise your skills.
Each week you take an online test to check your understanding of the topic. Every three weeks you complete a written assignment which checks your understanding of the topics covered previously. Your tutor marks your completed assignment and returns it to you with detailed feedback and advice.
We expect students progressing from school to have a grade D in GCSE Maths. Adults with no previous qualifications in Maths, or a Numeracy / Functional Maths qualification, are welcome to apply. We require all applicants to complete an online application form and an initial assessment so that we can assess whether the course is suitable for them. We may advise studying Functional Maths first, if appropriate, before progressing to GCSE Maths.
MCM will consider alternative qualifications and for mature students will consider work history as part of the entry requirement process. If you do not meet the above entry requirements please get in touch and we maybe able to help – firstname.lastname@example.org
The course will enable you to prepare for a higher level study, such as Access courses, and improve your job prospects. At the end of the course you will be expected to sit a nationally recognised exam.
