Schools Minister Nick Gibb has today announced that these qualifications, previously accredited by independent exam regulator Ofqual,  will be counted as core maths qualifications in a level 3 maths measure in 16 to 19 performance tables from 2017 and as part of the TechBacc (Technical Baccalaureate) measure from 2016. An expert panel has reviewed the qualifications to ensure they meet the high standards in content for core maths set out by DfE.
