Doing the maths: students get ahead of the game in GCSEs

Tuesday 28 May 2013

Our maths team have been working with ARK schools to get their year 7-9 students ready for GCSEs.

ARK came to us to fill the gap left when Key Stage 3 tests were removed in 2011. We worked with them to create 'mock' tests that would really feel like a GCSE maths paper and ensure that their students could handle being faced with familiar problems in unfamiliar contexts. The result was a tailored series of exam papers for years 7 to 9, designed to mimic the style and tone of GCSEs.
