Maths GCSE for adults

Page updated on: 23/09/2021

Attend two or three hour weekly sessions with a tutor and study in your own time as directed by your tutor. You can do this course over 1 year or 2 years, depending on your personal needs.

Your progress will be assessed by continual formative assessment by your tutor and self-reflection. You will also sit two final GCSE exam papers.

This is an intermediate level course. You will need to do an initial assessment with us to make sure this is the right course for you – help and advice is part of the process. You also need to be able to attend most weeks and, in addition, do the work necessary at home – this is a very condensed course that requires commitment – especially the 1-year version.

You will need to buy a GCSE maths set (compass, scientific calculator, protractor etc.) and a WJEC learner’s book.

The course costs £60 for WJEC GCSE Mathematics – Numeracy (two exam papers) and an extra £30 if you want to sit WJEC GCSE Mathematics as extra (two exam papers).

There are now two versions of the paper:

  • WJEC GCSE Mathematics – Numeracy
  • WJEC GCSE Mathematics

Please check the WJEC website for more information about this.
