GCSE Mathematics

Pupils in Years 10 and 11 are assigned to sets according to their performance and progress. Pupils have three hour long Mathematics lessons per week and two pieces of homework, each of which should be expected to represent around 40 minutes’ work.

Pupils in Year 10 in the academic year 2015-16 are following the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics (2015) syllabus and will all sit the Higher GCSE at the end of Year 11 in June 2017.

Pupils in Year 11 Sets 3, 4 and 5 in the academic year 2015-16 are following the Edexcel GCSE Mathematics A (2010) syllabus and will sit the Higher GCSE in June 2016.

See below for suggestions for becoming an independent learner of GCSE Mathematics.

Year 11 Additional Mathematics

Pupils in Year 11 Sets 1 and 2 in the academic year 2015-16 have already taken GCSE Mathematics in June 2015. In Year 11 they will consolidate their mathematical knowledge and skills from GCSE as well as meeting some key topics from the A Level syllabus such as calculus and the binomial expansion. In June 2016 they will sit either the OCR Free Standing Mathematics Qualification (FSMQ) in Additional Mathematics (Set 1) or the AQA Level 2 Certificate in Further Mathematics (Set 2).

The recommendations below for becoming an independent learner of GCSE Mathematics are equally relevant to pupils studying for either of the further qualifications.
