Our Cambridge IGCSE Maths homeschooling course will teach your child how to think logically. This will enable them to make more rational decisions and learn how to present an argument. Good numeracy skills will also give them an edge in most working environments.
A good grounding in Maths is vital if your child wishes to enter university or embark on a career. Grade C is part of an accepted entrance qualification for most universities. Grade A or A* provides evidence that they have the numeracy skills to do further study in the subject and in the Sciences.
This course now offers the option of online tutoring via Canvas for those students who require additional face to face support. Please note that there is an additional charge for this service. For further details of online the online tutoring service please see the course guide for IGCSE Maths.Apply Now
Our Core and Extended courses are designed to meet the requirements of Cambridge IGCSE Maths syllabus 0580.
Your child may prepare for either the “Extended” exam (papers 2 and 4) or the “Core” exam (papers 1 and 3). As its name implies the Extended syllabus is broader and covers more topics than the Core
The highest grade your child can achieve in the Core exam is C, whereas in the Extended exam they can achieve up to A*. Our application form allows you to choose the exam for which you wish your child to study. If you’re in any doubt about which exam to take, we recommend that your child commence their course by studying for the Extended exam. After the first few Modules, your tutor will automatically review the progress that your child has made. Should the tutor feel that your child would benefit from a move to the Core course, they will get in contact with you at this point. Our courses are designed so that a transition can be undertaken smoothly and if you make the decision for your child to transfer to Core, then this can be easily arranged with their Student Progress Manager.
Assessment comprises two written papers:
For the Core exam:
Paper 1: 1 hour (35% of the total marks) Paper 3: 2 hours (65% of the total marks)
For the Extended exam:
Paper 2: 1 hour and 30 minutes (35% of the total marks) Paper 4: 2 hours and 30 minutes (65% of the total marks)
