Our Level 3 Core Maths qualifications are designed to give students essential problem-solving and quantitative skills. Equal in size and UCAS tariff points to an AS Level, they are aimed at students who aren’t studying AS or A Level Maths, but need mathematical skills to support their other Level 3 subjects and for future study and employment. Students should have passed GCSE Mathematics at grade 4 or better.
See the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme for more information.
We’ve worked with Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) to develop two Core Maths qualifications. Both provide a solid foundation of using mathematical and statistical skills in everyday contexts. Core Maths A focuses on critical mathematical thinking and solving real-life problems, while Core Maths B has an emphasis on statistics and introduces students to working with a large data set.
MEI has a useful package of free resources for both qualifications.
