Using Spatial Techniques (4982)

We have carefully considered the future of our level 1 and 2 qualifications in the light of government changes to GCSEs, and have decided not to continue with our Using Spatial Techniques FSMQ.

The last exams for students taking the current qualification will be in the June 2018 series and there will be no final re-sit opportunity.

As an alternative, and depending on prior attainment, you may like to consider the following alternative qualifications: Entry Level Certificate, Level 1 Functional Skills.

Find out more about these changes and which qualifications we are planning to offer in the future. You can also contact the customer support team on the details shown below. 

Using Spatial Techniques (4982) is a level 1 Free-Standing Maths qualification (FSMQ). These are qualifications aimed at both pre-16 and post-16 students but are accredited for all age groups.  FSMQs may be taken alongside any qualification and taken as individual units. FSMQs may also be combined to form a level 1/2 Certificate in Use of Mathematics, a GCSE equivalent qualification.

Using Spatial Techniques is assessed by one exam of one hour. Calculators are allowed.

This FSMQ allows students to become competent in:

  • the use and production of detailed plans and drawings
  • basic construction techniques
  • the solution of spatial problems
  • the understanding and use of geometrical and associated terminology.

This specification appeals to students involved with courses in areas of Technology, Engineering, and Art and Design.
