The Edexcel Mathematics emporium can be found at www.edexcelmaths.com, where, as a teacher of Edexcel's mathematics qualifications, I hope you will be able to find all the documents you need to do with Edexcel’s Entry level, GCSE, International GCSE, GCE and AEA Mathematics.
If you have found this blog page, then chances are you're aware of the emporium website, Having logged in you will have seen the screen below (with your log-in name rather than mine) and have clicked on Browse Library.
The options you are offered are to Browse Library (in two places), Browse Categories and View Briefcase. The best option to start with is to Browse Library – the emporium has been set up as a Library rather than by different categories.
Having clicked on Bro
If you are from a centre taking only GCSE with us, you will have access to the Entry level, GCSE, IGCSE, FSMQ, Functional Mathematics and GCE O and AO level folders and files; if you taking only GCE with us, you will have access to the AEA, GCE AS/A level, FSMQ, Functional Mathematics and GCE O and AO level folders and files. If you are from a centre taking the whole range with us, all folders and files will be available.
Filing cabinets are initially ordered by level of qualification, so you need to decide whether you’re looking for GCSE or GCE documents, for example.
If you prefer, you can change the “at-a-glance” filing cabinet graphic to folders (with a full description of what’s in each folder) by clicking on the small four-sqaure icon shown just below the "Root" folder.
Using GCSE as an example of how to find the files you need, then:
GCSE Mathematics folders are split into the many linear and modular specifications that have been available over the past few years; you’ll need to know the various specification codes when viewing the filing cabinets, though you can find a full description of the specification by changing to the folder view. You can switch between each view easily enough and decide which is more useful to you at each stage.
If you click on the filing cabinet entitled GCSE Mathematics, you will see the following screen:
Let’s say you are looking for documents to do with the current GCSE modular Mathematics qualification, 2381. Click on the far right filing cabinet and you’ll be presented with:
These categories should be the same whichever specification you are looking at, whatever level. Some will be missing if there are no files to add, but the full list is:
02 Specimen Papers
03 Mock Papers
04 Practice Papers
05 Past Papers & Mark Schemes)
07 Schemes of Work
09 Grade Boundaries
11 Coursework (or Controlled Assessment)
13 Inset Presentations
14 Teacher Files
It should be possible to include everything under one or another of these headings. I suspect that cabinet 05 (Past Papers & Mark Scheme) will be the one used most.
So looking in the cabinet containing past papers and mark schemes, you’ll find
There are currently thirteen cabinets here, since over the lifetime of the specification up to March 2012 there were thirteen examination sessions in total (March 2012 isn't shown in this old illustration, mind).
Looking in the 07 2381 March 2010 cabinet you’ll find the past papers and mark schemes looking like this:
At this stage, it’s p
Click on the file you are interested in to see (in this example 01 5381F Paper 5A - March 2010.pdf, which is the pdf file of the 5381F Foundation tier Unit 1 (data handling) paper 5 (Section A, calculator), March 2010. Details of the file and download options will appear:
Any files you need then can be downloaded one by one using the download
You can change your password by clicking on your username in the top left-hand corner (where it says Logged in as) – your profile information will then be shown to be amended as necessary.
You can amend your name, e-mail, centre details and password – but not your username.
I hope this enables you to find what you need – and gives you a chance to explore to see what might be available that you didn’t know was there.
This website is added to all the time – but in the 6000+ files added, there will doubtless be some gaps and some files which aren’t what they purport to be. Please let me know if you find any errors and I’ll correct them where possible.
