    Attached is a small 4 slide presentation that "links" the new 1-9 GCSE grades to scores in the PISA international maths tests. It is really only for interest but possibly shows why the KS4 attainment performance measure for maths now focuses on grade 5 rather the the legacy C equivalent 4.

    I wonder if the new harder GCSE will change the performance of English students in the PISA test. The brighter students might do better as they'll have done some more challenging maths. Those at the bottom might do worse as the harder content will reinforce that they "can't do maths".
