    Hey, I am planning on retaking my GCSE Maths this November, can anyone provide me with a list of exam boards that offer GCSE Maths without coursework/modules(basically paper 1 and paper 2).

    Cheers

    By linear do you mean it's modular?

    That's like asking "By down do you mean up?"

    Do Edexcel MAO. Or something like that. I am in year 11 and am doing that this summer. It is just two exams calculator and non calculator. One is on Monday and then the other on Wednesday; simple as that.

    No I know of friends who are doing GCSE Maths with 4 modules. 3 of which are exams and 1 is coursework.

    Research Edexcel IGCSEs offer this option. Check out their website for more info and a list of examination centres. Exams are usually held at private schools. Hth.

    Silly me! I must have dreamt that the Government abolished coursework in GCSE mathematics five years ago.

    You might be better off finding out which Awarding Body/specification your local Examination Centre uses as you may not be charged invigilation costs if they have already entered students for the exams.

    Well the BBC are a strange lot! That is why they are an unreliable source!!!

    And you know that me and the OP both meant controlled assessments, but people sometimes refer to them as coursework (I and a lot of my classmates do). Stop being pedantic as you seem to have way too much time on your hands.
