Course Description

What is IGCSE?
IGCSEs are the same as GCSEs and are accepted in just the same way.

What is IGCSE Mathematics?
An essential subject for all students, IGCSE Mathematics is a fully examined course which encourages the development of mathematical knowledge as a key life skill, and as a basis for more advanced study. The syllabus aims to build students' confidence by helping them develop a feel for numbers, patterns and relationships, and places a strong emphasis on solving problems and presenting and interpreting results. Students also learn how to communicate and reason using mathematical concepts.

This completely new IGCSE course from UK Open Learning is designed to help meet the needs of those who want an introduction to this challenging subject either with a view to further study at A Level or simply to supplement a portfolio of IGCSE/GCSE subjects. Mathematics at IGCSE or GCSE is often a requirement for those wishing to enter a number of key professions and further advanced courses.

What is the course title and code for this qualification?
IGCSE Mathematics (0580)

What does the course prepare me for?
The study pack is designed to match closely the curriculum content of the syllabus and will provide you with the information and support you’ll need to take the exams with confidence. The materials and accompanying exercises provided will help you to develop the necessary knowledge and confidence to successfully attempt the exams. The key parts of the course which are important in every aspect are planning your studies and practice assessments where feedback from your UK Open Learning tutor is of the utmost importance.
