AQA Functional Maths spec in draft

AQA have released a draft of their Functional Skills qualification in Mathematics Level 1 and Level 2. Check it out here. For first teaching September this year, the accredited specification is due in March.

For those of you who’ve been following the AQA Functional Maths Pilot, there’s a change in the assessment model: no competency paper. At each of Level 1 and Level 2 there will be only one question paper, assessing content and process skills in contexts.

The contexts may be ‘everyday’ or they may be ‘unfamiliar’. There will be 3 to 5 questions per paper – all compulsory.

Both Levels have pre-release material that is available 4 weeks before the exam.

You’ll find more details on both the qualification, and the resources we are preparing for it, on this blogsite – just click here to see our Functional Maths page.
