NCETM congratulates students and teachers on GCSE Mathematics results

The NCETM congratulates all the students who received the results of their GCSEs today – and their teachers – on their hard work and their achievements.

This year sees the second national cohort of students receive their Maths GCSE on the new 9-1 grading system. The number of 16-year-olds passing maths at a grade 7 or higher and the number achieving the top grade 9 have both risen this year.

NCETM Director Charlie Stripp said:

"All those who received their GCSE results today should aim to continue with maths post-16. Continuing to develop mathematics and data analysis skills post-16 helps young people to prepare for the future, whatever their aspirations. The ability to use maths with confidence is useful in all walks of life."

For more details about the results, including advice to schools and colleges, please visit the website of our consortium partner, Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI).
