GCSE Statistics

Why do we teach this course?

Statistics gives students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in a key component of maths that is relevant to everyday life. You'll develop a core statistical grounding, as well as transferable skills and understanding that’s applicable to a range of other subjects including the sciences, Computer Science and Engineering. Mathematical fluency is an important and valuable skill that will help you in any career.


What does the course involve?

The Statistics GCSE course is divided into units:

Collection of Data Processing and Representing Data
Summarising Data Scatter Diagrams and Correlation
Time Series Probability
Index Numbers Probability Distributions


How will I be assessed?

This course is 100% exam based. There will be two exams at the end of the year, each worth 50% of your overall grade. Both exams are worth 80 marks, 90 minutes long and a calculator may be used.


What are my options after GCSE?

After the GCSE course, you will have covered several topics that are also covered in A level maths. Both mathematics and further mathematics are offered as Level 3 courses at BMAT STEM Academy. You may continue to study statistics in university. Top careers with average salaries for statistics degrees include:

  • Data Scientist - £101,000
  • Financial Quantitative analyst - £65,000
  • Accountant - £53,000
  • Operations Research Analyst - £77,000
  • Stock Trader - £82,000
  • Business Analyst - £75, 00
  • Market Research Analyst - £58,000
  • Statistician - £77,000


What should I do to prepare for the course?

Statisticians need to have a solid foundation and understanding of mathematics. However, many strong maths students will not necessarily find this course easy. Conversely, those a bit weaker in maths may find ways to excel in statistics. Statistics is not just an extra maths course. You need to not just be able to calculate data but also be able to describe its importance and relevance using words.
