Maths Nat 5

What is special about this course?

National 5 Maths is part of Curriculum for Excellence and is equivalent in level to the old Intermediate 2 Maths which it replaced (or Standard Grade which was replaced by Int 2 Maths).

This course is the entry requirement for some courses of further study (for example PGCE/ PGDE Post Grad Teacher training) and entry to Police/ Forces Training. However, it is always wise to check the specific entry requirements of your chosen course/ University.

A good grade at N5 Maths is a stepping stone to Higher Maths (and the course now includes where appropriate ‘Links to Higher topics’ to help with your progression).

The Course covers all the content of the National 5 Course, in preparation for the National 5 exam (which takes place over one day in May).
