We have carefully considered the future of our level 3 qualifications in the light of government changes to A-levels, and have decided not to continue with our Dynamics FSMQ.
Dynamics (9995) is a Level 3 Free-Standing Maths Qualification (FSMQ). FSMQs are qualifications aimed at both pre-16 and post-16 students, but are accredited for all age groups. This particular FSMQ is part of a pilot and students can either take this alongside other qualifications or combine this with other pilot FSMQs and core units to achieve the A-level Use of Maths.
Dynamics is assessed by one exam of one hour, calculators are allowed.
This FSMQ allows students to:
- apply their mathematical knowledge to the real-life situations used in the examination paper
- gain an introduction to courses in Mechanics
- study Newton's laws of motion at advanced level.
Students who study this FSMQ can use this qualification to complement their studies in other A-levels, for example Physics and Engineering.
