In years 10 and 11 students follow the two year Edexcel GCSE course, either Foundation or Higher tier, based on their progress and results in their assessments in year 9.


GCSE Mathematics is assessed by three examinations of 90 minutes each. One of these papers is a non-calculator exam and in both of the other two a calculator is allowed.
