Course Introduction

Course: Edexcel GCSE Mathematics 1MA1 (Higher Tier)

3 exams in May/June 2020 (1 Non-Calculator, 2 Calculator - each marked out of 80)

10CM2 Exam Results from May/June 2018:

3 x Grade 7,  9 x Grade 6, 14 x Grade 5, 2 x Grade 4

Grade Boundaries (out of 240 possible marks):

SittingGrade 9Grade 8Grade 7Grade 6Grade 5Grade 4Grade 3
Jun 201719015712496684127
Nov 201718915011285583219
Jun 2018202170139109795035

These are the higher tier grade boundaries for the first three 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.

Welcome to GCSE Maths

This web page will record the work for students of 10HM2 throughout 2018/19.
