The below are all the questions collated by topic that appear on **BOTH TIERS** from the below samples and specimens:

- AQA – Sample Assessment Material, Practice set 1 and 2
- OCR – Sample Assessment Material and Practice set 1
- Pearson Edexcel – Sample Assessment Material, Specimen set 1 and set 2.
- WJEC Eduqas – Sample Assessment Material

NOTE: I hope I have “caught” all the questions that appeared on both tiers but may have missed some – I am human after all!

Please note that these questions have been copied/retyped from the original sample/specimen assessment materials and whilst every effort has been made to ensure there are no errors, any that do appear are mine and not the exam boards (similarly any errors I have corrected from the originals are also my corrections and not theirs!).

The objective is to provide support to fellow teachers and to give you a flavour of how different topics “could” be examined. They **should not be used** to form a decision as to which board to use (as if they would .. but it needs to be said!). There is no guarantee that a topic will or won’t appear in the “live” papers from a specific exam board or that examination of a topic will be as shown in these questions.

Please also see my other notes about this resource **ON THIS POST **and also check out the questions by topic for the** FOUNDATION TIER PAPERS** and also the **HIGHER TIER PAPERS**

** PS** – The only questions I have excluded , are a few of the questions in relation to scale drawings and bearings due to scaling the pictures.

Is there anyway I can download all these as a ZIP file?

Harry PatrickMarch 9, 2017 at 8:56 amMy brother is morbidly obese I think that your “big fat 50” scheme is absolutely rambunctious. He uses this site daily and has to see this when he logs in. Please reconsider what your site insinuates.

ChrisMarch 9, 2017 at 7:03 pmHello, Thank you for these useful questions!

I found a mistake on your:

Factorising/Expanding/Solving Polynomials (H & F)

Version 1 January 2016 Answer sheet.

For question 1a the answer should be 2x(3x+4).

Thank you

JustMathsMelMarch 10, 2017 at 1:04 amApologies if you feel it causes offence but the name stems from the fact that the new GCSE has 1/3 extra exam time and was referred to in the media as the new big fat GCSE. Mel

JustMathsMelMarch 17, 2017 at 10:55 pmThanks for pointing that out – I’ve updated the solutions with my own now.
