Why choose this specification?

The ‘linked pair’ pilot began in September 2010, and consists of two GCSEs:

  • Methods, which looks at the pure aspects of mathematics
  • Applications, which includes using mathematics in everyday contexts (including financial applications) and problem-solving in real-life scenarios.

The ‘linked pair’ pilot is worth two GCSEs, and students must enter for both for either to count in the performance measures.
