OCR is delighted by the news that Ofqual has just accredited its new '9 to 1' graded Maths GCSE.
Mark Dawe, OCR Chief Executive, stated: "We are entering a new era in maths education with this new GCSE. Our GCSE is designed to be more teacher-friendly, more about learning than exams, but asks students to think more laterally. We have worked with the DfE and Ofqual to create this excellent new syllabus and are delighted it has been accredited for teaching from September 2015."
OCR believes its new Maths GCSE better prepares young people for the global skills market and life beyond school. This will be achieved with the introduction of more open-ended questions, less rote-learning and more problem-solving questions that are less structured. It is also teachable across a whole range of abilities.
