# Mathematical Studies

Mathematical Studies is a course designed for students who achieved a grade 5/6 at GCSE (or equivalent) who might not otherwise have the option to study A level Mathematics. Mathematical Studies is a relatively new qualification being offered in British Curriculum schools. This Level 3 qualification aims to build on the knowledge, understanding and skills established in GCSE Mathematics. Students will look at applying the skills acquired to real world problems and will also work with pre-released data.

This course completes in Year 12 with the examinations taking place in May/June of Year 12. There is no option to continue studying in Year 13.
