Students will have an oral test whereby they will need to answer 20 questions in 20 minutes.
On the final day of the course, they will need to sit for a 2-hour test which will be made up of 30 questions.
This course will enable students to gain proficiency in Maths at MQF level 4 and is structured to prepare students for the government test required for employment in the education sector.
