KS4

Students will be following the AQA GCSE Mathematics course (8300).

There are two tiers of entry for the GCSE; Foundation covering grades 1-5 and Higher covering grades 4-9.

The GCSE is assessed by three papers at the end of the course in year 11 (1 x non calculator and 2 x calculator) they are all 1 hour and 30 minutes long and contain a mix of question styles, from short, single-mark questions to multi-step problems. The mathematical demand increases as a student progresses through the paper.
