About GCSE Maths
GCSE maths has a grading system that uses numbers 1-9 to identify levels of performance with 9 being the top level. A student will either enter for the Higher tier covering grades 4-9 or for the Foundation tier covering grades 1-5.
There will be three papers at each tier, two papers where candidates can use a calculator and a third paper where calculators are not to be used.
The syllabus is divided into six sections that test
3. Ratio, proportion and rates of change
4. Geometry and measure
The main examination boards are Edexcel, AQA and OCR.
On this site you will find plenty of video tutorials which hopefully will give you the confidence and support you need to tackle your maths GCSE.
