Higher Tier Grade Boundaries (out of 240 possible marks):

Sitting | Grade 9 | Grade 8 | Grade 7 | Grade 6 | Grade 5 | Grade 4 | Grade 3 |

Jun 2017 | 190 | 157 | 124 | 96 | 68 | 41 | 27 |

Nov 2017 | 189 | 150 | 112 | 85 | 58 | 32 | 19 |

Jun 2018 | 202 | 170 | 139 | 109 | 79 | 50 | 35 |

Nov 2018 | 194 | 159 | 125 | 95 | 66 | 37 | 22 |

Jun 2019 | 198 | 167 | 137 | 108 | 80 | 52 | 38 |

These are the higher tier grade boundaries for the first five sittings of the new Edexcel GCSE Maths. The first two sets of exams were not at all popular with students but the June 2018 exams were viewed as more reasonable. The grade boundaries were higher but students felt they had more opportunity to demonstrate their skills and knowledge. Students were also fairly happy with the June 2019 papers.

The dates for your exams next summer are as follows:

Paper | Type | Code | Date | Session |

Paper 1 | Non-Calculator | 1MA1 1H | Tue 19 May | AM |

Paper 2 | Calculator | 1MA1 2H | Thu 04 June | AM |

Paper 3 | Calculator | 1MA1 3H | Mon 08 June | AM |

These dates are final and will not be changed.

We will continue to complete the Corbett '5 a Day' exercises for the remainder of this half term. You will be given them in hard copy each week.

A reminder that the summer homework based on Corbett 5 a Day is to be handed in tomorrow Thursday 5 September.
