Is this course for me?
Core Maths is for students who want to keep up their valuable maths skills, but do not wish to take A Level Maths.
What will I learn?
The course is designed to maintain and develop real life maths skills. What you study is not purely theoretical or abstract; it can be applied on a day-to-day basis in work, study or life and most courses will include a financial maths element. It will also help with other A Level subjects – in particular Science, Geography, Business Studies, Psychology and Economics.
Specific entry requirements: Grade 4 in Maths.
Mathematics is a key skill that all employers like to see, but the course content is particularly relevant for careers in the financial sector.
