How will students be assessed? | ||
A level Maths is currently unreformed. This means that the course is modular and will be assessed at the end of Year 12 with 3 examinations which lead to an AS qualification. The three modules are Pure Core 1 (non-calculator), Pure Core 2 and Mechanics. All exams are 90 minutes long, have a maximum mark of 75 and contribute to 1/3 of the AS final grade. There is no coursework.
The assessment objectives are common to both AS and A Level. The schemes of assessment will assess candidates’ ability to:
The use of clear, precise and appropriate mathematical language is expected as an inherent part of the assessment of AO2. |
