OCR is delighted to announce that its draft GCSEs for maths, English language and English literature are now available.
Following months of development work, OCR has now submitted draft specifications for English and maths to exams regulator Ofqual for accreditation.
Mark Dawe, OCR Chief Executive said: “We’re really excited to have reached the point where we can start to share the details of our draft specifications with the teaching community. We’ve worked with teachers, university academics, subject experts and employers over many months to take on board their feedback and build new qualifications with exciting, stimulating content and resources to match.”
Following the submission of GCSEs to Ofqual this week, OCR will be submitting A Levels to Ofqual during June. Once accredited, these qualifications will be in schools in September 2014, giving teachers nearly a year to get up to speed with the changes before first teaching in 2015.

OCR is also running a series of free half day events across the country in June and July offering teachers guidance on introducing the new GCSEs and A Levels. For more details about attending the events, visit the CPD hub.
