Core maths is the size of an AS qualification with grades A-E available. It helps to develop students’ mathematical skills and thinking and supports courses such as A-level Psychology, Sciences and Geography as well as technical and vocational qualifications. At the end of the course students will sit two papers (comprehension, application) - 1 hour 30 mins in length. Use of graphic or scientific calculator is allowed in both papers.
