Core Maths Skills course

Overview

Students who are new to studying Core Maths may find it helpful to revise the skills they’ll need to use in their studies. The same goes for students who are starting a non-maths A level subject with some mathematical content, such as Biology, Psychology, Geography or Business, and/or a level 3 vocational course.

The AMSP’s self-study Core Maths Skills course is designed for just that. It supports students with the transition to their new level 3 courses and is particularly useful for them to use during the autumn term.

Registrations open on the 1 May 2022

The course has been developed by the AMSP and is free of charge to all AMSP registered schools.
