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

1. Number

2. Algebra

3. Ratio, proportion and rates of change

4. Geometry and measure

5. Probability

6. Statistics

The main examination boards are Edexcel, AQA and OCR.
