        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
                Intranet

 past papers, topics to cover (in the self
 supported study section) and links to
 some useful websites.

  college website.

               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’.

  as no module 5 exam has been sat for the new
  2-tier system.
