Year 11 Maths PPE

By 29 September 2022No Comments

Year 11 students will complete their PPEs week commencing 7th November. There will be three maths assessments – one non-calculator paper and two calculator papers. These assessments are very important as they will help staff and students to identify where the gaps in knowledge are so that we can address these before the GCSE exams. They will also help to inform decisions around tiers of entry. 

All students have been provided with a revision list so that they can begin their independent revision. They have also been provided with information about where to find resources to support them with their revision. In the Sharples student google drive there are knowledge organisers, revision lists with links to video clips, topic based questions with mark schemes and past exam papers with mark schemes.

Preparing for your maths assessment?
The best way to revise maths is to practise maths. You can use the practice questions shared in class, or those on Mathswatch. Make sure you take time to learn any formulae you need. Start revising early and try to revise little and often. Revising a little bit every day will help you to remember more than if you do a very long revision session the day before the exam. Make sure you bring the equipment you need to your exam. You will need a pen, pencil and ruler. You will also need a calculator. Having a good scientific calculator that you know how to use can make a huge difference to your assessment score. The school recommended calculator is the Casio Classwiz FX-83GTX for foundation tier students or the Casio Classwiz FX-991EX for higher tier students.

If you have any questions or you have forgotten your Mathswatch login details, you can email Mrs Hart (
