GCSEs in science are being reformed for first teaching from 2016. Changes to the grading system may mean changes to the way that tiering works, affecting which grades are available on each tier.
As part of our ongoing research programme to support the reform of GCSEs, we would like to hear your views and experiences of tiering in science GCSEs so that we can provide you with the best possible support.
If you have a spare 15 minutes, please fill in our questionnaire or email Frances Wilson for further details.
Our Quantitative Methods qualifications are ready for first teaching in September 2014. These exciting new qualifications aim to bring maths to life for your post-16 students who wish to build on their GCSE success but who do not want to start on AS Mathematics.
Students can follow a 60 guided learning hour unit, Introduction to Quantitative Methods (IQM), and obtain a Level 3 Certificate. If they wish, they can continue by taking Decision 1 and Statistics 1 from the AS Level Maths (MEI) suite and obtain an AS Level in Quantitative Methods.
Discover our new GCSE Further Additional Science qualifications to complement both of our current GCSE suites of qualifications, Twenty First Century Science and Gateway Science.
Both new specifications allow students to engage with Science, enabling them to make informed decisions about further study in Science and related subjects as well as career choices. You can download accredited specifications online today.
We’ve created sample resources for the new specifications to show you the materials we’re developing.
