A scientific calculator and drawing instruments are essential.  These can be purchased through TRC at a discount.

Any student who still needs to improve their grade will then get another opportunity to resit the exam in June.

Entry Criteria

Standard TRC Level 2 entry requirements.  Grade 3 in GCSE Maths.


Useful Supporting Courses

All students taking GCSE Maths must take at least 3 other subjects.  It is essential to have a GCSE Maths qualification for entry to university, teaching and many other careers.

Some courses at university require a grade 5/6 in GCSE Maths, so students who have a grade 4/C should consider taking Higher GCSE Maths to improve their grade if appropriate.  If students are in any doubt they should seek careers advice.
