What will I study?
This subject will be an opportunity to re-take your GCSE Maths if you didn't get a grade 4 first time. At BHASVIC we have an excellent track record working with students to achieve this important qualification. We offer a fresh start, in a new, more mature environment than school, where we will support you in getting to where you need to be. The subject will teach everything at Foundation level where the maximum grade achievable is a grade 5.
Is this course right for me?
Though all students who don't have a grade 4 at Maths GCSE are required to take this subject, you will have the full support of the BHASVIC Maths department behind you. Lessons will be engaging, and will focus on getting you to where you need to be to succeed. You may even decide that you want to aim higher and strive for a grade 5 (or higher!), in which case we will be with you every step of the way.
This enables students to take or complete a range of level 3 courses that require grade 4 English GCSE. This is a requirement for many jobs and also for university courses and higher level apprenticeships.
