“The idea is to go from numbers to information to understanding.”
As technology evolves so does the amount of information that we collect. Statistics focuses on how this data is collated, analysed, interpreted and presented.
Understanding statistics is crucial to understanding the world around us and important in nearly all walks of life; from the sciences and medicine to managing businesses and governments.

Mode of Assessment
GCSE Statistics covers a wide range of basic statistical knowledge and skills, grouped into three areas: collection of data, processing representing and analysing data, and probability. Concord’s course aims to increase awareness of the role that accurate statistical representations, calculations and interpretation can play in daily life. Students will learn to calculate and interpret data in order to make informed decisions on a wide range of issues.
Almost all jobs and careers require you to have a GCSE in Mathematics, but the extra level of statistics covered by this course will help with A Level Mathematics. After GCSE, many students choose to use their knowledge of statistics to enhance their EPQ projects in Year 12 and 13.
Knowledge of statistics will be helpful in many careers and degrees where analysis of data is relevant, such as Economics, Medical Research, Accountancy, Banking and Business Management to name a few.
