This year, nine of Essa’s Year 10 students seized the opportunity to study Statistics GCSE as an extra curricular offer. The aim of this was to stretch these students by encouraging them to apply mathematics to real life statistical events, and to provide a boost to any future college applications. The course involved a huge amount of independent study – they attended after school and holiday sessions, as well as completing coursework which involved an investigation and a written assessment.
Throughout the year they have shown excellent dedication and a real aptitude for the subject. They sat their exam in June and overall attained one A*, three As and five Bs. This is an outstanding achievement for these students considering the limited time frame and the challenging content of this course.
