A bank of model assignments is provided by OCR for units R002–R010. Centres must select from the model assignments provided, to use when assessing their learners.
Centres can make modifications to the model assignments that OCR provides so that the assignment can be put within a local context that learners might relate to more easily, or to allow for differences in the materials, equipment and facilities available at different centres. Guidance on what can be modified is given in each assignment in the section Teacher Information under Scope of permitted model assignment modification.
OCR will review the model assignments annually which may result in an assignment being withdrawn and replaced. It is up to the centre to check the website to see which model assignments are available to be used. We will give approximately 12 months notice if a model assignment is to be withdrawn and replaced so that we do not disadvantage any learners who have already started working on an assignment that is to be replaced.
For more information on the use of model assignments please see section 4.2.1 in the specification.
