Can anyone give me some advice? I am considering beginning GCSE teaching in year 9. My rationale is that much of the content in the year 9 resources is covered in year 10, now that the SATs have gone I think it would be possible to begin the year 9 N.C. coverage via GCSE material. Why? Pupils will have longer to achieve/consolidate their understanding and may enter early for GCSE (year 10) and either continue with statistics if successful or further study for a resit. Basically taking the GCSE over 3 years if needed. This contrasts with my previous schools decision to begin year 8 resources in year 7, thus year 10 becomes a re-hash of year 9 resources. If anyone has experience or knowledge of the above I would love to hear from you.
