Maths is a subject a lot of people have difficulties with. It is also one of the most important subjects students learn at school. A Maths GCSE is one of the most sought after qualifications both for employers and universities.
In the last couple of years there have been a lot of changes to GCSE Maths, designed to test students’ mathematical abilities along with their problem solving skills. The style of the exam questions is also changing, meaning there are fewer short straight forward questions and more longer questions which require an added layer of understanding.
The GCSE Maths specification includes alterations to the style of questions, there are some new topics brought down from current A Level syllabuses including Venn Diagrams, Iterations and a small taste of A Level calculus in the form of functions.
All of our maths tutors at York Maths Tutor are up to date with all of these changes and have familiarised themselves with all of the new material and the style of the questions in the new GCSE Maths specifications.
We have found that maths is by far the most popular subject for which people look for extra help. We have helped students of all abilities with GCSE Maths, from those aiming for a level 4, to those aspiring to achieve the highest possible marks possible.
As with GCSE English, the grading system has changed. Instead of students being awarded a letter grade (ranging from a U to an A*), they will now be given a number using the new 9-1 grading system. The new system has been designed to provide further differentiation between the most able of candidates, only the most capable of candidates will achieve a 9 grade, effectively creating a higher grade beyond the current A*. The changes to the grading system will, in the coming years, be brought in for all GCSE subjects, as well as GCSE Maths and GCSE English.
We have a team of dedicated maths tutors with a wealth of experience of teaching both the Higher and Foundation tiers of GCSE Maths. We also have tutors available for GCSE Statistics as well as GCSE Further Maths.
At York Maths Tutor, we understand that not everyone can achieve a Level 9, however we will ensure students are stretched enough for them to reach their potential. All of our GCSE Maths tutors strive to build students’ confidence and address any gaps in knowledge or misconceptions students may have.
For those who are preparing to retake GCSE Maths then there is a specialist service that we recommend. This is a GCSE maths resit tuition service that provides resources and one to one support specifically for people who have struggled to pass their exam on a previous attempt and are now preparing for a GCSE maths retake.
