EXAM DATES obtained from http://www.aqa.org.uk/admin/t_table_pdf/

The exam dates have now been confirmed by the exam board. At the Deal Adult education centre, AM exam sessions start at 9am and PM exam sessions start at 1:30pm. At Hartsdown Technology School, PM exam sessions start at 2pm. This is when the exams are scheduled to start. You should therefore arrive in plenty of time before this to register and find your seat.

Supplementary evidence

If you wish to submit any evidence for concessions during the exams (e.g. extra time), please inform me of this as soon as possible so that the necessary arrangments can be made.

Where can I get past exam papers?

You will be given a number of ast exam papers and practice questions (with worked answers in most cases) by me. If you wish to download further exam papers the best place is the exam boar itself: Past Exam papers and mark scheme from exam board

You will receive the following past exam papers and revision questions:

  • Summer 2003 Modules 1, 3, 5
  • Specimen 2003 Modules 1, 2, 3
  • Quick Check revision questions. Foundation and Intermediate booklets
  • GCSE Intermediate Mathematics Practice (from www.2july.co.uk website)
  • Practice Paper 2003 Module 5
All have answers, some with worked solutions. Please let me know of any mistakes you find.

What do I need to gain a C grade?

I am often asked, "What percentage is needed to gain a C grade?". It is difficult to give a precise figure since such boundaries are changed for each exam series to maintain grading consistency. However, as a guide only 50% should give you a D grade, 60% a C grade and 70% for a B grade.

Things you will need for the exams

Calculator, compass, pencil, rubber, geometry set, spare pen.
