Introduction

Page 1

The Pearson Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9 - 1) in Mathematics is designed for use in schools and colleges. It is part of a suite of GCSE qualifications offered by Pearson.

These sample assessment materials have been developed to support this qualification and will be used as the benchmark to develop the assessment students will take.

General marking guidance

All candidates must receive the same treatment. Examiners must mark the last candidate in exactly the same way as they mark the first.

Mark schemes should be applied positively. Candidates must be rewarded for what they have shown they can do rather than be penalised for omissions.

Examiners should mark according to the mark scheme – not according to their perception of where the grade boundaries may lie.

All the marks on the mark scheme are designed to be awarded. Examiners should always award full marks if deserved, i.e. if the answer matches the mark scheme. Examiners should also be prepared to award zero marks if the candidate’s response is not worthy of credit according to the mark scheme.

Where some judgement is required, mark schemes will provide the principles by which marks will be awarded and exemplification/indicative content will not be exhaustive.

When examiners are in doubt regarding the application of the mark scheme to a candidate’s response, a senior examiner must be consulted before a mark is given.

Crossed-out work should be marked unless the candidate has replaced it with an

alternative response.

Pearson Edexcel Level 1/Level 2 GCSE (9 - 1) in Mathematics SAMs – Draft 1 –

Guidance on the use of codes within this mark scheme:

B mark is one mark for accuracy in AO1 (e.g. for recall of a formula) in

Strands 1, 2, 3.

A mark is always an AO1 mark awarded for accuracy.

M mark is a method mark, and can be awarded across all Assessment Objectives

C mark is a mark that involves descriptive comment at the end which may or may

not contain a numerical solution to the problem.

P mark is a mark that can be awarded to a proof, a process (correct process with the

correct result), or a numerical solution to a problem (where the method is shown), or

for evaluation of AO3 (Strands 4 and 5). Where there is evidence of a decision that

starts the problem-solving process, this is exemplified in words, followed by an example of working out (where the example given is not exhaustive). This means that alternative and valid solutions should also be rewarded.

oe – or equivalent cao – correct answer only ft – follow through sc – special case awrt – answers which round to

Each mark is allocated to an Assessment Objective strand and element within the mark scheme. Please see page 22 in the specification for the breakdown of the Assessment Objectives into strands and elements.

A teacher recorded the marks that 200 students got in a French exam.
He produced a grouped frequency table with class intervals of width 10 marks.
He then drew this cumulative frequency graph.
The same 200 students took an English exam.
The median mark for the English exam, as a percentage of the total number of marks
was 55%.
The maximum possible mark for the French exam was 80
Keith claims that the median mark, as a percentage of the total number of marks for
the exam, was higher in the French exam than in the English exam.
(i) Use the cumulative frequency diagram to investigate Keith's claim.
(ii) Explain one assumption you have made that could affect
your answer to part (i).

A biologist is studying the effects of global warming on animal size.
The histogram gives information about the masses of a species of snail in a sample he
took in 2013 from a large lake.
The mean mass of the same species of snail taken from the lake in 2003 was 75 grams.
Is there any evidence to support the hypothesis that the mass of this species of snail has
decreased?
