Core Maths is a descriptor for a range of different Level 3 qualifications, it is not a qualification title in itself. OCR and Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) have jointly developed two new qualifications designed to meet the Core Maths requirements: Level 3 Certificate in Quantitative Reasoning (MEI) and Level 3 Certificate in Quantitative Problem Solving (MEI). This is a well-established partnership which provides a firm foundation for curriculum and qualification development. Both of our qualifications are supported by a free resource package developed by MEI.
Further information about Core Maths qualifications is available from the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme.
Both OCR's qualifications have been accredited by Ofqual for first examination in 2016 and approved by the Department for Education as a performance measure from 2017. Each of our qualifications have been awarded the following UCAS tariff: A - 20, B - 16, C - 12, D - 10, E - 6.
