GCSE mathematics

Subject content and assessment objectives for GCSE in mathematics for teaching from 2015.



This publication sets out the learning outcomes and content coverage required for GCSE specifications in mathematics. The new GCSE sets higher expectations; it demands more from all students and provides further challenges for those aiming to achieve top grades.

New subject content and assessment objectives for GCSE English language and GCSE English literature have also been published.

The government’s response to the consultation on subject content for a new GCSE in mathematics, which will be taught in schools from September 2015, is also available.

Alongside this GCSE content, Ofqual has announced its decisions on the key characteristics of reformed GCSEs, including new arrangements for grading and assessment.
