KS4 Mathematics

 

At Key Stage 4, pupils at Mesaieed International School are placed into a teaching group based on their cumulative performance at Key Stage 3.

 

The majority of our pupils are expected to follow the Edexcel IGCSE Higher Mathematics (4MA0) syllabus which allows access to the highest grades and provides opportunities for the development of deep mathematical understanding and rigour.

 

Pupils who are not deemed capable of coping with the demands of the higher course follow the same syllabus at the Foundation level. This covers similar material, but at a less demanding conceptual level.

 

It is important to remember that both of the IGCSE courses offered are two year courses. The knowledge gained in the first year of the course is consolidated and subsequently extended as each pupil works through the final year towards the terminal examination.
