GCSE (9-1) Mathematics: Just two papers and a wealth of free teaching resources


Hugh Lester, England Stakeholder Engagement Executive, tells us why our unique approach to assessment sets us apart from the competition.

The content requirements of all mathematics GCSEs offered in England are very similar.  However, there is one important difference with Eduqas: candidates sit two papers rather than three.

This unique two paper structure is proving popular with teachers and students, as it clearly distinguishes between the calculator and non-calculator aspects and lessens administrative complexity.  Teachers also say that it makes it more straightforward to ensure that as many of their students as possible attempt the full assessment. 

Eduqas also provides a wealth of support resources completely free of charge.  These include themed revision “takeaway menus” for each domain area, video tutorials, worksheets and interactive class activities.

Whilst the specification is designed to be used in both schools and colleges, the freshness of its approach and the resource materials make it particularly attractive for use with re-sit candidates.

But don't just take my word for it; this is what Melanie Muldowney, Associate Subject Leader at Alcester Academy, had to say about our mathematics resources:

'There are so many great classroom-ready teaching resources available on the Eduqas website but my two favourites are (1) the set of problem solving PowerPoint slides that work through a number of multi-step questions to break a question down and (2) the TakeAway homework – both are perfect for the last stretch to the final exams!'

You can find out more by contacting the subject officer, Kathryn Rees.  Kathryn is an experienced maths teacher so expert subject advice is always just a phone call or an email away.  An Eduqas regional representative would also be happy to call in to tell you more.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
