The Welsh Government has introduced two new GCSEs;
- GCSE Mathematics
- GCSE Mathematics – Numeracy
‘GCSE Mathematics’ will extend aspects of Mathematics required for progression to scientific, technical or further mathematical study e.g. teaching and Higher Education. The course will have an emphasis on problems set both in real-world contexts and within Mathematics itself and will encourage learners to employ and evaluate different mathematical techniques.
‘GCSE Mathematics – Numeracy’ will assess the Mathematics that learners will need in their everyday lives, in the world of work, and in other general curriculum areas.
