Statistics GCSE at Shenley Brook End School
GCSE statistics is offered to some pupils in year 10 and the course is taught within the allocated time for your GCSE mathematics. Statistics is concerned with obtaining and processing data with a view to interpreting the results. The contexts used are generally those that are familiar to you in your everyday life and are seen continually in the media. Some of the work covered is also part of your GCSE mathematics course whilst other topics build on these and develop them further. This course is assessed by one examination (75% of the final grade) and one piece of coursework (25% of the final grade). There are two levels of entry, Foundation and Higher. The Foundation tier examines work at grades C to G and the Higher tier examines work at grades A* to D.
