1.Grade 8

To achieve grade 8, candidates will be able to:

  • perform procedures accurately

  • interpret and communicate complex information accurately

  • make deductions and inferences and draw conclusions

  • construct substantial chains of reasoning, including convincing arguments and formal proofs

  • generate efficient strategies to solve complex mathematical and non-mathematical problems by translating them into a series of mathematical processes

  • make and use connections, which may not be immediately obvious, between different parts of mathematics

  • interpret results in the context of the given problem

  • critically evaluate methods, arguments, results and the assumptions made

2.Grade 5

To achieve grade 5, candidates will be able to:

  • perform routine single- and multi-step procedures effectively by recalling, applying and interpreting notation, terminology, facts, definitions and formulae

  • interpret and communicate information effectively

  • make deductions, inferences and draw conclusions

  • construct chains of reasoning, including arguments

  • generate strategies to solve mathematical and non-mathematical problems by translating them into mathematical processes, realising connections between different parts of mathematics

  • interpret results in the context of the given problem

  • evaluate methods and results

3.Grade 2

To achieve grade 2, candidates will be able to:

  • recall and use notation, terminology, facts and definitions; perform routine procedures, including some multi-step procedures

  • interpret and communicate basic information; make deductions and use reasoning to obtain results

  • solve problems by translating simple mathematical and non-mathematical problems into mathematical processes

  • provide basic evaluation of methods or results

  • interpret results in the context of the given problem
