No changes to Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9–1) Statistics examinations for 2021

In August 2020, Ofqual confirmed there will be no changes to the Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9–1) Statistics 2021 examination series. To read the full Ofqual consultation report please visit the government website.

We will be supporting you and your students every step of the way with the 2021 examination series. You can find out more about all the support we have available in our Course materials and Teaching support tabs. Some of our highlights are below:

  • GCSE Statistics Course Planner to provide you with one possible two-year course and one possible one-year course for the delivery of GCSE Statistics
  • Statistical Enquiry Cycle Practice papers to support with the new Assessment Objective 3 in GCSE (9–1) Statistics
  • Exemplars from June 2019 (PDF 2.4 MB) which contains exemplar student responses to selected questions from the GCSE (9–1) Statistics June 2019 series. It shows real student responses and how the examining team follows the mark schemes to demonstrate how the students would be awarded marks on these questions.

We are also working really hard to provide you with new catch up support as soon as possible. The following will be coming soon (links to the support will be listed below as it becomes available and we will let you know when further information is added):

  • A full set of shadow papers based on the June 2019 assessments. These use the past papers as a basis and contexts and values are changed to provide an unseen set of practice papers.

We also have a huge range of existing catch up and knowledge strengthening support for Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9–1) Statistics in our massively popular Maths Emporium. This includes:

  • Mapping GCSE (9–1) Statistics to the legacy specification
  • Specimen Papers
  • Schemes of Work

Sign up to the Emporium.
