    I’m 50 and I’ve set myself the challenge of sitting Maths GCSE in June 2011 with 2 objectives:- 1) To bring myself up to speed so I can help my children with their homework and 2) To see just how easy or difficult it is to get an A star! Obviously I need to go for an examination that does not involve course work. Which exam board do you recommend?

      Hi Jason –
      None of the main Boards require coursework for their GCSE.
      I recommend you ask your children (or their teachers) what Board they use at their school and go with that. That way you’ll be fully aligned with what they’re doing.
      Failing that, the two Boards with the main share of candidates are AQA and Edexcel. Either one should work fine for you.

    With reference to the blog item posted 21 Oct where you offer a free download of the higher unit 1 practise paper. The link to the related marking scheme looks to be wrong. It links to a resit exam and not the practise paper. I wonder if you could offer a corrected link to the practise paper marking scheme.
    Many thanks,

    Thank you very much for the practice paper – that’s really helpful for a new specification like this. I don’t think the mark scheme matches that paper though, it would be so helpful to have the mark scheme if that is possible.

    Thanks for posting the Higher Unit 1 Practice Paper.
    It will be a great help in preparing for the forthcoming exams.
