Maths @ Bosworth • Here at Bosworth we take the AQA Modular maths course. • Students have taken module 1 – handling data and module 3 – number, which are both exams, and have also completed 2 pieces of coursework • This gives a total of 50% towards the final grade.
The final 50% of the marks are made up of 2 papers. Paper 1 is non-calculator, and Paper 2 is calculator. • This is made up mainly of Algebra, Shape, Space and Measures, with a small amount of number. • Paper 1 – May 19th • Paper 2 – June 2nd

Past Papers • The best way to revise for maths is to practice questions. The best place to find questions is on past papers. • The intranet contains past papers from June 2002 up until June 2006 for the old 3 tier system. • To access them from the maths page on the intranet select GCSE, then module 5, and finally select the link ‘Past Papers’.
