Ofqual has published the report of the A level Mathematics Working Group https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/as-and-a-level-reform-regulations-for-maths-and-further-maths . This report deals with mathematical problem solving, modelling and the use of large data sets at A level. At the same time, there is a consultation about the assessment objectives for Mathematics and Further Mathematics AS and A levels; these will affect the assessments for the new examinations.
Ofqual has also published a consultation on regulations for the use of calculators in GCSE and GCE examinations.
The deadline for responding to these consultation is 11 January 2016. MEI will respond to both consultations. Anyone wishing to contribute to MEI’s responses is welcome to send their comments to Keith Proffitt at [email protected]
