The Enhanced Tiering Support for Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9–1) Mathematics provides several tools to help you determine a suitable tier of entry for mock examinations.

Providing for students for whom GCSE Maths may not be appropriate

A small part of the work in every Maths Hub entails just this sort of pursuit: small groups of teachers, from different schools, getting to investigate a specific area of the maths learning process. But a national perspective is added—widening the evidence base—because each area of research is investigated by Work Groups in multiple Maths Hubs, with results shared.


Our on-demand Moderation Service will enable teacher marked GCSE Maths and English papers to be moderated by an Edexcel expert examiner. Teachers do the marking; we moderate and provide the insights.
Please note, this exciting new service is available for you to use with your mocks from the autumn term for GCSE English and Maths.

Online tutoring from qualified UK teachers. Delivered directly to schools and through the National Tutoring Programme.

We are currently recruiting for some examiner positions. More information can be found on our recruitment page.

Brilliant opportunity to join our student-focused assessment team in Manchester (Hybrid working) and make an impact to the lives of young people:
