Students undertake a 3-hour external examination based on the subtopics and key questions and key ideas outlined in the three topics. The examination will consist of a range of questions, some focusing on knowledge and routine skills and applications, and others focusing on analysis and interpretation.
Students will have access to the appropriate technology during the examination.
The examination will be graded by external assessors with reference to the performance standards.
The Mathematical Studies Subject Outline includes performance standards, which describe five levels of achievement that are reported with the grades A to E at the student’s completion of the subject.
The school-based assessments and the external assessment will be graded with reference to the performance standards.
