All GCSEs are now based on Grades 9 (the top grade) to 1. Grade 4 will be the equivalent to a pass.
Foundation covers grades 5,4,3,2,1 (U) and Higher covers 9,8,7,6,5,4 (U)

    A Grade 8 pupil can:

  • Perform procedures accurately
  • Interpret and communicate complex information accurately
  • Make deductions, inferences and draw conclusion
  • Construct substantial chains of reasoning, including convincing arguments and formal proofs
  • Generate efficient strategies to solve complex mathematical and non-mathematical problems by translating them into a series of processes
  • Make and use connections, which may not be immediately obvious, between different parts of mathematics
  • Interpret results in the context of the given problem
  • Critically evaluate methods, arguments, results and the assumption made

  • A Grade 5 pupil can:

  • Perform routine single and multi-step procedures effectively by recalling, applying and interpreting notation, terminology, facts, definitions and formulae
  • Interpret and communicate information effectively
  • Make deductions, inferences and draw conclusions
  • Construct chains of reasoning, including arguments
  • Generate strategies to solve mathematical and non-mathematical problems by translating them into mathemathical processes, realising connections between different parts of mathematics
  • Interpret results in the context of the given problem
  • Evaluate methods and results

  • A Grade 2 pupil can:

  • Recall and use notation, terminology, facts and definitions: perform routine procedures, including some multi-step procedures
  • Interpret and communicate basic information; make deductions and use reasoning to obtain results.
  • Solve problems by translating simple mathematical and non-mathmatical problems into mathematical processes
  • Provide basic evaluation of methods or results
  • Interpret results in the context of the given problem
