The exemplar answers with examiner comments provide a particularly valuable resource. These booklets look at questions from the AS and A level Sample Assessment Materials, which was used in the trial undertaken in summer 2017. Real student responses are shown together with commentary showing how the examining team apply the mark schemes. The commentary includes always useful notes on common errors.

Note the support for Statistics. The Teaching Guide is very thorough indeed, as Edexcel say:

“This booklet looks at statistics content of AS and A level Mathematics qualifications and is intended to offer explanations of the terminology that is being used in specifications, guidance on how to approach teaching of the content and help on where and how to use technology to support the delivery of the course. This document is designed to give teachers a starting point and does not include all possible approaches to topics discussed.”
