Syllabus: Mathematics J560 Exam Board: OCR
Mathematics is a compulsory subject.
All students will begin a GCSE in Mathematics in Year 9.
The GCSE course aims to give students a sound and confident grasp of Mathematics.
Students will be required to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding and skills in the following assessment objectives:
Students will study for a linear course in Mathematics. This will be assessed in a terminal examination which will consist of three written papers, each 1.5 hours long, in the summer of Year 11. Two of the papers will require the use of a scientific calculator and the third will be non-calculator.
Students will be tested regularly during the GCSE course. Set changes may take place on the basis of these assessment results.
Students are required to bring a full Maths set to every lesson, including a scientific calculator. We recommend the Casio fx-83GTX or fx-85GTX. These are available in the Student Resource Shop.
