Pure mathematics and mechanics (01)
·36.4% of the qualification
·Component 01 assesses content from areas 1 and 2.Section A contains shorter questions with less reading and interpretation. Section B has longer questions with multi-step problems.
Pure mathematics and statistics (02)
·Component 02 assesses content from areas 1 and 3. Section A has shorter questions with less reading and interpretation whereas section B consists of longer questions that involve multi-step problem solving aspects. Some questions will be asked that are based on the data set which OCR MEI release. Students should study this data set in preparation for the questions that relate to it.
Pure mathematics and comprehension (03)
·Component 03 assesses content from area 1 with assumed understanding from areas 2 and 3.Section A is 60 marks and assess pure knowledge.Section B is 15 marks on a previously unseen comprehension passage based on the pure mathematics content of the entire MEI specification.
