GCSE Assessment Information:
The weighting of the different content domains for the 9-1 GCSE is prescribed by the Department for Education (DFE) as follows:

Weighting of marks per assessment series for “Probability & Statistics”
Foundation tier Higher Tier
15% 15%


Exam boards are to apply these weightings, subject to a +/-3% tolerance across the assessments for each tier in each Assessment Series. Note that where they do not achieve this in a given Assessment Series they should achieve them in as few Assessment Series as is possible.

Below you will find a sample (not a definitive list) of our different types of resources that are included in JustMaths Online as part of our support package, the “JustMaths Crossover” but also for teaching other topics as prescribed by the DFE in this document .
