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."
