Linked GCSE Pre-pilot Executive Summary
This resource from Alpha Plus published in December 2010 is the independent evaluation of the pilot of the linked pair of GCSEs in mathematics. The linked pair of GCSE qualifications are: ‘Methods in mathematics’ and ‘Applications of mathematics’. The two qualifications together cover the entire Key Stage Four programme of study for mathematics and contain some additional content.
This pre-pilot report is the first of seven formative evaluation reports on the pilot of the linked pair of GCSEs in mathematics. A final, summative evaluation report will be presented in December 2013. The pre-pilot report focuses on pre-pilot planning, preparation and communication; pilot centres’ state of readiness; and expectations of the impact, risks and issues of the linked pair of GCSEs in mathematics, as identified by centres and wider stakeholder groups before the first delivery of the pilot in September 2010.

Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date.
