Wider view There was a perception and various studies that suggested: • A level students don’t know, can’t apply or even remember the mathematics they’ve studied. • A level students aren’t prepared for the next stage of study

But …it’s an age old problem 3 January 1962

But …it’s an age old problem 5 February 1970

But …it’s an age old problem 21 June 1984

Fast forward to 2017 … aims … • Coverage of broader and deeper mathematical content, delivered through a single extended GCSE • Higher tier will include questions that will stretch the most able • Foundation tier will focus on core mathematical understanding and skills for all learners to master • A greater focus on problem-solving • Additional requirements to provide clear mathematical arguments • More formulae to memorize

Its not exam boards that decide. .

DFE content

DFE content • New content • Both tiers For example: Venn Diagrams , frequency trees

DFE content • New content • Moved from Higher to Foundation: For example: Standard form, using pi, reverse percentages, factorising quadratics, trigonometry, circle properties, vectors, tree diagrams

DFE content • New content - for example: • Added to Higher: For example: Gradient at a point on a curve , as rate of change, areas under graphs, quadratic inequalities, APs and GPs

Ofqual content • New GCSEs from first examinations in 2017 • Linear only • Two tiers, H & F • More examination time • Grading scale from 9 to 1 • No course work*

Ofqual content

Ofqual content • New assessment objectives • AO 1: Use and apply standard techniques (50%, 40%) • AO 2: Reason, interpret and communicate mathematically (25%, 30%) • AO 3: Solve problems within mathematics and other contexts (25%, 30%)

Ofqual content • More emphasis on problem-solving, communication, proof, interpretation
