Ofqual has now accredited our Foundation and Higher tier SAMs and we’re excited to be able to share them with you.

We’re sure that you’ll find our new GCSE Maths SAMs accessible to the full range of your learners, and that the improvements we’ve made will help you feel even more confident in choosing Edexcel GCSE Maths.

You’ll notice we’ve made the following changes:

  • improved clarity of language and readability of assessment materials
  • removed formulae sheets - formulae will be provided to students in the question if required
  • ensured the Foundation tier includes more questions targeting the lowest grades
  • reduced the number of questions with a large number of marks, particularly at Foundation tier.
