From experience, we know studying for GCSEs can be one of the most daunting times in any child’s education and the prospect of not achieving that mythical grade C in GCSE maths can weigh heavy on their minds. MisterMaths is the perfect way to ensure that they achieve their full potential. Our GCSE maths revision resources includes worksheets, Maths tests and past papers. On their own they are a great resource but to gain maximum benefit they should ideally be used with a tutor.
GCSE Maths revision at the Foundation level covers grades G to C. In the new syllabus starting in 2015 GCSE grades will be replaced by a new system of number grades. please see our blog for further information
GCSE Maths revision at the Higher level covers grades D to A*. In the new syllabus starting in 2015 GCSE grades will be replaced by anew system of number grades . please see our blog for further information
The new GCSE course for Maths will begin in September 2015, meaning the first new GCSE exams will be sat in 2017. So those of you with Children starting to take their GCSE’s next year (year 10) will be the first to enter the new system. As such the exam results for those students will be a mix of number and letter grades.These changes will only affect students in England. Wales and Northern Ireland will be introducing their own systems and Scotland will be its present one.
Two tier system is staying
The current Foundation and Higher tier system is projected to remain. However Ofqual have stated that it may be possible to have just one stretched exam paper for all students in the future.
Grades are difficult to compare
Ofqual has deliberately introduced a new system to differentiate from the old. As such the grades do not align. However there are some clues that we can use to overlap the traditional A-G grades. Please not that this is only an educated guess at the moment and boundaries will change as the new system comes into place.
*Only top 3% of all students in England will achieve a grade 9
