Trialling our Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Maths assessments
As part of the ongoing support we're providing for our new Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Mathematics qualification, we aim to provide teachers with in-depth information about its assessment, so that this can inform teaching in advance of its first examination in summer 2017.
So, we're currently running a trial, with several thousand students sitting one of the recently released sets of specimen papers (set 1).
We've made sure a range of centre types and students of all attainment ranges are taking part. If you haven't yet, you can download our specimen papers to use with your students.
How will we use the trial results?
We'll use the information from the trial to:
- provide guidance on student performance
- create even richer support materials to help centres prepare for the first assessments.
We hope to be able to share some of the results of the trial and these materials in spring 2016.
