Exam Board Information for Mathematics
We follow the Edexcel syllabus for Mathematics. GCSE - two papers, each one hour and three quarters, for both Higher and Foundation tiers. For the Higher tier grades A*-C are available and for the Foundation tier grades C-G are available.
Mathematics is offered as a two year course and Further AS Mathematics is offered over the two years. AS Mathematics consists of three modules and is examined at the end of the first year. Three further modules are studied in the second year to complete the A2 qualification. All modules are equally weighted. The course is examined via a one and a half hour written examination paper for each module (9 hours in total for AS and A2). The modules carry equal weight and there is no coursework.
