This is a basic maths course which is suitable for students who hold the equivalent of Standard Grade maths. The aim is to help students to develop their confidence and accuracy in a range of topics, starting with basic skills and progressing to more advanced topics. There are weekly tests with good performance leading to the possibility of gaining an exemption from the final exam. Learning is mainly done in the students’ own time. This course is not suitable for students who have recently achieved an A or a B in Higher Maths or equivalent.

1st Attempt: In-course assessment (100%) for students who perform sufficiently well in weekly computerised tests. Any student who fails to achieve by in-course assessment or who wishes to upgrade CAS mark obtained, can take the end of course computerised examination (or its resit). In this case the final mark is calculated with 30% coming from the weekly tests and 70% coming from the exam.
Resit: Computerised examination similar to 1st attempt examination.
Regular computerised tests discussed during computer practicals.
