GCSE Exam Dates 2021
Exams for this year have been cancelled, but pupils will complete internal assessments based on the content they have been taught.
Futher details will be published here when available.
Key Stage 3
In KS3, each year is split into 6 discrete topic areas:
> Number: Arithmetic
> Ratio, Proportion and Rates of Change
> Number: Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
> Geometry and Measures
> Probability & Statistics
Pupils cycle through each topic area, gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding with a mastery focus on gaining confidence in each aspect’s basic skills before moving-on to more challenging areas.
Key Stage 4
In KS4, while the same topic areas are covered as in KS3, there is a greater appreciation of how the topics relate to one another.
Pupils study topics discretely and then in conjunction in order to secure a strong understanding and enable them to apply their knowledge to problem solving involving multiple topic areas in preparation for GCSE exams.
The aims of the GCSE Maths course are to:
> Develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
> Acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
> Reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
> Comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context
