Course Overview

The Mathematics – Numeracy GCSE online course is very useful in a variety of careers, developing skills that are highly recognised and valued in the workplace. They are two separate stand alone qualifications, although there are some common elements to the course materials. It is possible to sit both exams, however it is strongly advised to research which strand is the best fit for your individual needs.

What are the differences between GCSE Maths and GCSE Maths (Numeracy)?

It’s important to know this at the very start of your course, although if you decide to change strand after a while that’s ok.

  • GCSE Maths generally consists of short structured questions. It has more of the traditional elements such as algebra and further geometry and requires a wide knowledge of maths vocabulary. Questions are usually worth a relatively small number of marks.
  • GCSE Maths (Numeracy) has more focus on problem solving. Questions generally have more detail and require a good level of comprehension. It tends to introduce more real life scenarios and questions can be worth quite a lot of marks

Our  WJEC GCSE Mathematics – Numeracy online course is enhanced with lessons with a bank of resources, interactive tests and activities.  The course focuses on strands of learning within the curriculum to improve progression throughout, offering a seamless progression.
