Maths GCSE Online

GCSE Maths is a one year course beginning in September and ending with the exam in June the following year. Students are expected to study for at least six hours each week for the duration of the course.

The course is divided into weekly topics, for example, Angles, Percentages, Probability. The course follows the Edexcel GCSE Maths Specification A syllabus and is suitable for students wishing to study for both the Foundation and Higher Tier examinations.

Course content

The course is taught online through very detailed, clear, well-organised materials. You belong to an online class and have your own online tutor who gives you help and support. Your tutor contacts you each week and guides you to the webpages and other resources that you study to complete each topic. Each topic includes exercises for you to practise your skills. Everything is clear and easy to follow.

Each week you take an online test to check your understanding of the topic. Every three weeks you complete a written assignment which checks your understanding of the topics covered previously; you send the assignment to your tutor who marks it and gives detailed advice and feedback.
