Edexcel GCSE Mathematics (9-1) from 2015
Assess and track GCSE (9-1) Maths
Tracking your learners' progress is key to understanding their achievements. We’ll help you do this, as well as set targets and understand which tier of entry may be most appropriate.
Tiering guidance introduction
These two guides aim to help answer questions about which tier your should be entering your students for in the new 9-1 exams.
Secure mock papers
We know how important it is for your students to be able to sit mock exam papers that they haven’t previously seen in preparation for the GCSE (9-1) Mathematics summer exam series in 2017. To help you with this, we have two sets of secure mock papers, autumn 2016 and spring 2017, at both Foundation and Higher tier, available to download now. To help keep them secure, you will need an Edexcel Online username and password to access them.
Bronze and Silver papers are graduated versions of the mock papers where some structure is added to the questions; this will help students understand what is required and to gain confidence that they can answer the questions. The gold versions are the actual papers themselves.
Download the zip files you need. The documents included are listed below each zip file.
