Core Maths is a one year course, studied alongside a BTEC Level 3  Extended Diploma or 3 A Levels, and is equivalent to 1 AS level

Core Maths qualifications enable learners to strengthen and develop the mathematical knowledge and skills they have learnt at GCSE. You will study maths topics, which will consolidate and extend the mathematics learnt to date and develop transferable problem solving skills.


Themes covered include:

  • Spreadsheets
  • Modelling and estimation
  • Statistical and financial problem solving
  • Exponential growth
  • Graphs, probability and risk

A number of specifications will be changing and prospectus entries are based on information we have to date. This means that course content may be subject to change.

How will it be delivered?

Two 2 hour examinations at the end of the one year course.

What can I do next?

The skills developed in the study of mathematics are increasingly important in the workplace and in higher education; studying Core Maths will help you keep up these essential skills. Most students who study maths after GCSE improve their career choices and increase their earning potential. 

The course also gives an examination subject at Level 3 that would strengthen a UCAS application and some Universities will give a lower offer to students with a Core Maths qualification.
