Preparing for Success in Higher GCSE

A comprehensive course covering essential ‘crossover’ topics on the GCSE mathematics exam. A crossover topic is one that appears on both the foundation and higher paper.

This 30-hour course is suitable for any student pushing for a grade 5 on the foundation paper or for a higher tier student looking to consolidate their skills and eliminate those ‘silly’ lost marks on the higher paper.

Ideal for all pupils who want the best start in in their final GCSE year.

This course consists of 30 lessons. You can dip in and out as you wish, creating your own personalised learning course, but we’d recommend you attend all sessions. Even if it is a topic you think you already know, the session will be useful revision.

Every session is led by an expert mathematics teacher. Sessions are full lessons – just like you’d get at school – including teacher-led instruction, lots of examples and discussion, plenty of practice and time for you to work on problems.

You will have access to learning materials during and after the session, giving you more time to practice and carry out further study. Materials will include presentation slides, worksheets and other resources.

If your school is a Complete Mathematics subscriber, you will also have access to a recording of each session, allowing you to go back through the lesson at your own pace.

The full course costs just £30. That’s just £1 per session! Places are limited, so sign up today to reserve your place on this fantastic course, which will give you a head start for success in GCSEs.
