Edexcel Awards in mathematics Choosing the right level
Choosing the right level
Our Edexcel Awards in mathematics help students improve in one or more key areas of maths so they can progress in their studies, training, or at work.
- At Level 1, the awards are aimed at students who need to study mathematics beyond KS3 and Entry Level, but may find the content and skills required for GCSE success difficult at first. They're also suitable for students who want a numeric qualification that shows their level of mathematical competence.
- At Level 2, the awards are aimed at students who want to build confidence and competence in a targeted area of mathematics first, before going on to applying maths and problem solving in a range of contexts required for GCSE success. They're also suitable for students who need to display mathematical competence before starting further study or employment.
- At Level 3, the awards are aimed at students who need to be stretched beyond GCSE, focusing on developing their existing maths skills further. This development of their skills and confidence will help to prepare them for the rigours of studying mathematics at AS/A level. These awards are also suitable for learners who are currently studying, or plan to study, subjects or courses that require an understanding of key mathematical concepts and techniques.
