Overview

The course will reinforce topics you’ve already covered in previous studies and will boost your understanding and confidence in areas you may have found more difficult, like algebra or statistics.

You can take this course if you have previously achieved a GCSE Mathematics grade 3 or 2, or in previous years a D or E grade. You will be aiming for a grade 4 or 5 on this course.

You will need a minimum of two GCSEs at grade 3 or above. Specifically, a grade 3 (or D for the previous grading system) will be required in GCSE Mathematics. However, a two year GCSE Mathematics course or Functional Skills can be undertaken with a grade 1 or 2.

 On this part time course at HSDC Alton, you will cover the following aspects of Mathematics:

  • Number
  • Algebra
  • Ratio, Proportion and rates of change
  • Geometry and Measure
  • Probability

All of our lecturers are leading subject and industry professionals. 

We use digital innovation in delivering teaching and learning. The College offers a variety of teaching and learning approaches including lectures, tutorials, studios, workshops, presentations and group discussions.

There are three written examinations taken at the end of the year.

A grade 4 in GCSE Mathematics is invaluable to many employers. You may also wish to continue on to another course that may require a pass at GCSE Mathematics.


I got into both of the universities I wanted to. It happens so fast and it’s an amazing feeling when you think that all of the work you’ve done has paid off in the best way possible.
