  • This field must be completed with the highest GCSE maths grade for the learner as at the funding qualifying start period.

  • For learners on a programme of study that extends over several teaching years, this field must be updated at the start of each year.

  • If the learner's maths GCSE result is unknown at the start of the teaching year, then this field must be returned with the value of 'NONE' and updated once the result is known.

  • If the learner achieves a maths GCSE during the year, this field does not need to be updated until the start of the following teaching year.

  • Only maths GCSE achievement should be recorded in this field. If a learner has not taken a GCSE maths exam or has an equivalent overseas or other approved UK qualification then this field must be returned with the value of 'NONE'.

  • If the learner has an exemption from the maths condition of funding then this must be recorded in the Learner Funding and Monitoring fields using a Learner FAM type of MCF.
