From 2017 Mathematics examinations in England changed to the new 3 paper examinations with a greater emphasis on functional Mathematics and pupil understanding.
Why study Mathematics?
According to a recent survey by the Engineering and Technology Board, Mathematics and Computing graduates are the most employable and the very highest earners, and mathematical skills regularly top employers’ wish lists. Mathematical skills learned at GCSE, such as logical thinking, problem solving and statistical analysis, are closely linked to those actually used in the workplace.
GCSE Mathematics:
All students will follow the Edexcel GCSE Syllabus and will be entered for examination at either Higher Tier (Grades 9-4) (roughly equivalent to the old A* to D); or Foundation Tier (5-1) (roughly equivalent to the old C+ to G). The tier of entry will be based on target grades as established by the Academy. Assessment is 100% examination, with students taking three terminal written papers, one non calculator paper and two calculator papers. GCSE Mathematics is taught for four hours weekly in streamed groups. The GCSE in Mathematics requires students to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding and skills in six areas:
- Number
- Algebra
- Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change
- Geometry and Measures
- Statistics
- Probability
