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OCR will review the model assignments annually which may result in an assignment being withdrawn and replaced.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 We will give approximately 12 months notice if a model assignment is to be withdrawn and replaced so that we do not disadvantage any learners who have already started working on an assignment that is to be replaced.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.
If you currently teach the GCSE in ICT, then the Level 1/2 Cambridge Nationals Certificate in ICT provides an alternative qualification to move to.
Cambridge Nationals ICT are recognised for Key Stage 4 Performance Tables for 2018
All qualifications are subject to review and we are currently preparing to ensure that our Cambridge Nationals continue to meet the needs of students for the next scheduled review in 2017.
This is a vocationally-related qualification that takes an engaging, practical and inspiring approach to learning and assessment. The everyday use of ICT, from PCs to smartphones, now impacts all of our lives. This new Cambridge Nationals in ICT reflects this and provides students with a solid understanding of the subject which they can use in their working lives. Three themes are covered: business information systems, creative and technical.
We’ve put together this guide to give additional guidance on how internal standardisation may be approached. These guidelines must be used in conjunction with the Centre Handbook and Admin Guide relevant to the qualification you are delivering.
This resource brings together the questions from the June 2013 examined unit (R001), the marking guidance, the examiner’s comments and the exemplar answers into one place for easy reference.
