GMC6: Understanding data and risk

This list contains a collection of resources to help meet General Mathematical Competency 6 (GMC6). More resources to support T level Science can be found on our T Level science resource packages page.

GMC6 states:

Students should:

  • make data clear and presentable
  • make sure data is accurate
  • use of software to produce collection of measurements and images, including diagrams, graphs and charts, that best communicate information to intended audiences and reflect ‘clinical standard’ practice
  • understand that graphical data may require the identification and validation of mathematical functions to appropriately model the data
  • demonstrate an understanding of how data is generated, sifted, selected, sampled and organised
  • understand that separation techniques for data processing procedures and outputs should be interrogated and interpreted critically against principle knowledge

Students should be aware of, and be able to communicate risk in a variety of situations for example

  • explaining risks to patients if asked
  • advising individuals and families about risks of genetic disorders
  • account for the effects, implications, risks and issues associated with recording patient information
