GCSE Maths

Curriculum Overview

During the Maths GCSE curriculum, we continue to develop the problem solving skills which pupils will have encountered throughout Key Stage 3.

In addition to continuing to foster links between maths and real life situations; we also emphasise and highlight careers in which the skills learnt in maths would be central. 

How will I be assessed?

Pupils will be assessed using GCSE grades 1 - 9. These grades will be used during large summative assessments, such as mock exams as well as during spotlight assessments. Other assessments, focusing on units will not be graded individually as it would not be appropriate to do so.

Pupils will sit a full mock GCSE paper in the summer term of Year 10.

There are 3 Maths GCSE Papers that students sit for their GCSE exams. Papers 2 and 3 allow the use of a calculator. Each paper lasts for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
