Re: GCSE Mathematics
As you will be aware, your child is due to sit their GCSE Mathematics examination in Summer 2020. This will consist of three papers, all 1 hour 30 minutes in length. Paper 1 is non-calculator and Papers 2 and 3 are calculator. The dates for these exams are:
Paper 1 – Non-Calculator – Tuesday 19 May 2020
Paper 2 – Calculator – Thursday 4 June 2020
Paper 3 Calculator – Monday 8 June 2020
In order for students to prepare for this, we have issued them with two revision books to use in preparation for their forthcoming mocks and beyond. The first book has two sets of practice papers that also contain the model solutions. The second book is a revision guide that is referenced on the practice papers.
We have also given them details on websites that has useful resources in order to aid their revision further. The website we recommend is: https://corbettmaths.com as it has useful videos and linked worksheets with solutions. Students also have details of more websites stuck in their planners.
We will also be offering revision sessions on a Tuesday lunch time and Wednesday after school. These will start in the week commencing 30 September 2019.
Please sign the slip below acknowledging receipt of this letter and your understanding of the revision materials and sessions being available to your child.
