Grade Boundaries For Previous Exam Sittings

Grade Boundaries (out of 240 possible marks):

SittingGrade 5Grade 4Grade 3
Jun 201715812290
Nov 201714511383
Jun 2018169136101

These are the Foundation 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 the Maths Intervention Class web page.

Here we will record the work done to help you target a Grade 5 in your GCSE Maths next summer.

Two short sessions per week cannot substitute for the learning you can achieve during the 4 lessons per week you have with your Maths teacher. It is the commitment you show in those lessons that will be the most important factor in determining your eventual grade. View intervention sessions as an opportunity to consolidate and put into practice what you learn in your normal Maths lessons.
