Details

The reformed A levels have seen the assessment of mathematical skills formalised in Ofqual requirements for the first time. To support the ongoing development and delivery of these assessments, we convened a meeting of subject experts from Ofqual and the exam boards to consider the assessment of mathematical skills in A levels, focussing on GCE business and psychology.

This report outlines some common principles developed during these discussions and the thinking behind them. It also includes examples of questions to illustrate how these principles can be applied in practice.
