Assessment

Here at Rye Hills Academy we use the Edexcel exam board.  Maths is assessed by three exams at the end of Year 11.  Each exam is 1 hour 30 minutes, Paper 1 is non-calculator while Papers 2 and 3 are calculator papers.  Each paper is divided into a higher and foundation tier.  The higher tier ranges from grades 4-9 while the foundation assesses grades 1-5.  The decision of which tier will be determined in Year 11, based on mock and class performance.

Here are some examples of what the exam papers look like:

Paper 1F

Paper 2F

Paper 3F
