Statistics is a full GCSE qualification that is usually done by the top sets in mainstream schools. It can count as one of your grades for college if you have to get a certain number of grades (eg 5 A*-C grades or 5 D/E grades). You can work at any level from G grade all of the way up to A* so anyone can do it!
The qualification is made up of one piece of controlled assessment (coursework) completed in lessons and one exam at the end of year eleven. We use the Edexcel exam board and follow their scheme of work.
This qualification is really good for students who enjoy Maths and the work completed can help you boost your maths grade. It involves lots of the work completed in the handling data section of the Maths GCSE, drawing graphs and finding averages and measures of spread.
As part of the course there is some project work and students (such as the student above) have looked at prices of cars as part of the course. We can make the projects about whatever you are interested in (although I can’t promise that you can sit in a Ferrari).
