2019 saw a record number of students enter for GCSE mathematics.
But how did those special 30 that Metatutor helped along the way do?
In all, we helped 30 students study for GCSE maths, 16 of whom took the foundation exam, with the other 14 taking the higher exam.
You are 16% more likely to pass GCSE maths if you study with Metatutor
88% of our students achieved a Level 4 or above (in other words, a pass). This is compared to only 72% of all students in the UK, which we are absolutely delighted about! So, if you go with Metatutor, you are 16% more likely to pass! Shows we are doing something right!
Of our higher tier students, all of them passed. And 57% of them achieved a Level 6 or above. This is very pleasing from my perspective, as the maximum grade achievable by taking the Foundation exam is a Level 5. So for more than half of our higher students to achieve a grade higher than that justifies the decision for them to do the higher exam.
The average grade achieved by our students was 4.81, which is higher than the UK average grade of 4.64.
We underperformed in the higher grades, however this hardly surprising as the majority of the students who achieve those grades probably don’t need a tutor in the first place! Also, 53% of our students took the foundation exam (where the highest grade possible is a Level 5) as opposed to an estimated 40% of the general population – which means technically we have a smaller chance of achieving grades 6 or above.
Well done to all of our students who took their GCSEs this year – including those who didn’t quite get the grade they were looking for. And roll on next year where hopefully the results will be even better!
