The papers are original (ie not past papers) and come with worked solutions.

Just wondering what gcse is

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

GCSE, in UK, is qualification in a specific subject. Essentially, it is similar to CBSE.

General Certtificate of Secondary Education, usually taken at age 16.

There are three exams boards in the UK that produce papers at GCSE. Mostly recent papers can be downloaded for free from the board websites.

In maths there are two levels, foundation and higher. Because of the constraints of the National Curriculum and the standardizing powers of the Joint Curriculum Council, there is little difference between the different board papers.

Agnishom, usually people believe CBSE is patterning near GCSE but generally most people agree CBSE is of a higher standard then GCSE.
