Overview

We offer the opportunity to improve upon the results of GCSE examinations as a one year course.

There are various reasons why a student may not have achieved their desired grades; personal or family circumstances, illness, a lack of motivation, or simply poor exam technique. We help build a student’s confidence and skills and help them succeed in attaining the grades they deserve.

The GCSE retake course is different to a normal GCSE course. It is a one year course, as opposed to the general two or three year course followed in secondary school. GCSE retake students will have covered the majority of the syllabus previously and will mainly refresh the GCSE content and focus on answering questions on topics, studying areas of particular weakness and building up exam confidence. We offer this course at both Foundation and Higher level.

How will it be delivered?

Students will be required to attend 2 lessons per week, of which some will be teaching sessions and others will be mentoring sessions. A range of teaching techniques will be used along with textbooks and worksheets.

All students are provided with content and syllabus information.

The course follows the standard GCSE programme of study, which is assessed by three written examinations in June, or earlier in November if staff feel that it is appropriate. All exams last for 90 minutes, and are worth 80 marks. The first paper is non-calculator, and the other two require the use of a calculator. 


Entry requirements

To access the Level 2 pathway students will need a majority of Grade 3's at GCSE. Students will be required to retake this subject if they didn't obtain a Grade 4.

Your next steps...

A good grasp of essential mathematical concepts and techniques provides an important background to the study of many other subjects.

This course should lead to an improvement from the grade you achieved last time. Most Further and Higher Education institutes and universities will have a specific Mathematics grade as part of their entry requirements, so success in your GCSE resit will open up many opportunities in the future.
