Sixth Form Letter to Parents – GCSE Resit – 13/01/2022

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This year, we will be running a series of mock assessments in Maths to provide pupils with lots of opportunities to reflect on what their strengths and areas for development are. These assessments will also provide pupils with a “working at” grade so they can reflect on whether they are working below, on or above their target grade.

To help prepare for these mock assessments, pupils should use the Maths google site which they can access through their school logins. This google site contains all of the key information pupils need to know for the assessments, as well as useful revision materials. Pupils can also login to Mathswatch (a Mathematics website) which contains videos and extra practice questions.

A full topic list and further information about the content of the GCSE Numeracy exams can be found through the following links:

Maths: https://www.cathayshigh.co.uk/about-us/our-subjects/mathematics-numeracy/

For these Maths assessments, pupils will need a pen, pencil, ruler, compass, protractor and rubber. They will also need a scientific calculator for the calculator exams.

The dates of the assessments are as follows:

DateMock Assessment
Wednesday 9th March, periods 5 and 6GCSE Mathematics – Unit 1 (non-calculator)
Wednesday 23rd March, periods 5 and 6GCSE Mathematics – Unit 2 (calculator)

Please note: The marks pupils achieve in the unit 1 and unit 2 assessments are added together. Pupils are then given a grade based on their total mark.

We would like to wish your son/daughter the very best of luck in both preparing for and sitting these assessments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself or your son/daughter’s Maths teacher – we would be more than happy to help.

Kind regards,

Miss I. Dunne
