HOW IT WORKS:

This course will prepare you for sitting your GCSE Higher Mathematics. 

We provide you with support for 12 months but it is entirely up to you how quickly you work through and when you sit the exams.

Exams take place once a year in May/June. 

You can choose to receive your course materials by email or receive a hard copy delivered in folders that is yours to keep.

Throughout the course you are fully supported so if you come across anything you are unsure of you can contact your tutor by email. You also have a support team by telephone.

At the end of each section you will complete an assignment which you will email to your tutor. This doesn't count towards your end grade but it allows the tutor to ensure you are on the right track and help iron out any problem areas. Assignments consist of exam style questions so are effectively mini mock exams. The idea is that by the end of the course you are fully up to speed and confident you will achieve the grade you require.
