The course consists of three units. Each of the three component units are assessed internally by means of a unit test. There is also an external examination in May.

The unit headings are:

  • Expressions and Functions
  • Relationships and Calculus
  • Applications

The Higher Mathematics Course motivates and challenges learners by enabling them to select and apply mathematical techniques in a variety of mathematical and real-life situations, equipping them with the reasoning and operational skills needed to interpret and solve problems. It builds on the strength of the skills development and reasoning elements of National 5 Mathematics and introduces and develops new concepts, such as calculus and recurrence relations.

Recommended minimum entry requirements: Grade A or B at National 5 Mathematics
