Crossover / Common questions.

The new GCSE contains little information about where the grade boundaries will fall.  However, Edexcel have published some specimen papers that help.  On each set of specimen papers there are questions that appear on both the Foundation and Higher tests.  As the only grades awarded on both tiers are 4 and 5 these must be the type and level of difficulty of questions asked at these grades.

Download a copy of the paper, attempt the questions and then use the walkthrough to mark and improve your answers.  Please email your teacher or Maths@asap.org.uk with any questions you have.
