Support and In-Service Training for Teachers In support of these specifications, OCR will make the following materials and services available to teachers: • up-to-date copies of these specifications; • In-Service Training (INSET) meetings; • specimen question papers and mark schemes; • past question papers and mark schemes after each examination session; • a report on the examination, compiled by senior examining personnel, after each examination session. If you would like further information about the specification, please contact OCR. Foreword This booklet contains OCR’s specifications for Advanced Subsidiary GCE (AS) and Advanced GCE (A Level) Mathematics, and associated certification titles, for teaching from September 2013. It has previously been revised to take account of the changes to the GCE Mathematics Aggregation Rules from January 2008 and the introduction of the A* award for A Level Certifications from June 2010. The specification has been further revised to take account of changes arising as a consequence of the removal of the January examination series. Prior to 2008 GCE Mathematics and Further Mathematics were aggregated using the ‘least best’ method. Under this system candidates were awarded the highest possible grade for GCE Mathematics using the lowest possible uniform mark total and then the best grade for Further Mathematics using the remaining unit results. Candidates were able to decline awards if they planned to improve their grades in the future. From January 2008 a candidate wishing to improve their grade is no longer able to decline the original award; instead candidates make an entry for at least one of the GCE Mathematics’ units and make an entry for certification. GCE Mathematics and Further Mathematics are now aggregated by first establishing the best possible combination of grades and then selecting the unit combination which gives the highest uniform mark total for the GCE Mathematics. From June 2010 the A* grade was introduced to reward exceptional performance at A Level. For GCE Mathematics the A* grade is awarded based on performance in the Core 3 and Core 4 units. For Further Mathematics A Level the award of A* will be based on the results of the best three A2 units. Advanced Subsidiary GCE units are assessed at a standard appropriate for candidates who have completed the first year of study of a two-year Advanced GCE course. A2 units are assessed at a standard appropriate for candidates who have completed a two-year Advanced GCE course. Advanced Subsidiary GCE forms the first half of Advanced GCE in terms of teaching time and content. However, the Advanced Subsidiary can be taken as a ‘stand-alone’ qualification. In these specifications, the term module is used to describe specific teaching and learning requirements. The term unit describes a unit of assessment. Each teaching and learning module is assessed by an associated unit of assessment. These specifications meet the requirements of the Common Criteria (QCA, 1999), the GCE Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced Level Qualification-Specific Criteria (QCA, 2003) and the relevant Subject Criteria.
