On this episode of the Mr Barton Maths Podcast I spoke to Andrew Taylor, the Head of Maths at AQA.

I asked Andrew many questions, including:

  • Does he feel that the Maths GCSE actually needed changing?
  • What are the biggest differences, in his opinion, between the current and new specs?
  • What advice does he have for teachers when preparing their students for the new Maths GCSE?
  • What will the new Maths GCSE grade boundaries look like?
  • What tier of entry would he recommend for a Grade C student?
  • And the big one… why should schools choose AQA ahead of the other exam boards?

All of the resources Andrew mentions can be found at All About Maths: http://allaboutmaths.aqa.org.uk/home

The lovely (and free!) AQA Diagnostic Questions quizzes can be found at: https://www.diagnosticquestions.com/aqa
