Core Maths (Level 3 Qualification)

Core Maths is a Level 3 course (the equivalent of an AS qualification taught over two years) for those students who are interested in developing their mathematical skills beyond GCSE but do not want the rigour of a full A-Level Maths course. Core Maths focusses on the application of maths, including in personal finance, and the estimation and analysis of data.
