What does it mean for my
Core Maths
The key information is:
'Core' Maths has been available from September 2015
Will suit students who achieve an 4-9 in GCSE Maths but do not wish to study AS or A-Level Maths
Core Maths is a Level 3 qualification accredited by Ofqual
It is taken over two years
Will be an AS Equivalent
It will have UCAS points
The qualification has been developed in conjunction with Universities who offer courses which require an element of mathematical analysis and is designed to bridge the gap between Year 11 and University for students who do not study Maths at A-Level.
It will include content from the new GCSE Maths Higher Tier and will develop students' problem-solving skills which are needed for further study and/or future employment

Who we recommend to take Core Maths
Students who have a 4 or 5 in Maths
Students taking Psychology or Sociology
Students struggling to choose a 4th option
Three year phased reform
Sept 2017 = Start of phase 3
ALL A-Level Subjects

ALL universities are recommending that students strongly consider taking this qualification
Not for UCAS points as such (although UCAS will be awarded - Higher than AS points)
Universities are recommending it for the skills and experience it will provide students
Friday 8 September - AS levels commence
