GCSE Maths is a core subject, making it one of the most important qualifications you can achieve. Maths, alongside other core subjects, make up minimum requirements for a host of educational and employment opportunities. Especially if you wish to pursue a career in teaching as a grade 5 formerly a C is the minimum requirement to start your training. Aside from the professional benefits, GCSE Maths will provide you with problem-solving and logic skills. You will study and understand algebra, geometry, probability and statistics. This learning will be underpinned with problem-solving exercises so you can apply your knowledge in real-world settings.
GCSE Chemistry Foundation Tier
Resourceaholic: Foundation Tier Revision Resources
For those less familiar with the detail of GCSE maths, there are two tiers: foundation and higher. Students can achieve grades 5 to 3 on both tiers, and the exam papers will include some questions that are the same on both tiers. This will help exam boards ensure that it is no more or less difficult to achieve the same grade on different tiers. The reformed GCSE maths qualifications are different to the old qualifications. They contain new, more demanding content, and have a greater focus on problem solving. So the relative demand of each tier has changed compared to the old qualifications; the bottom grade on the higher tier will be more demanding than in the old specifications, as will the top grade on the foundation tier. We are interested in how schools are making their tier entry decisions in light of these changes.
