In response to promoting the use and benefits of using new technology we introduced Computer-based Tests (CBT) for a number of GCSE qualifications.
Due to low centre demand for this form of assessment, we are now withdrawing the CBT option for the A342/01 unit.
From June 2014 candidates should only be entered for the written paper for the unit stated above. The CBT option will no longer be available.
If you have any queries regarding this change, please contact the Customer Contact Centre on 01223 553998 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Ofqual previously confirmed changes to be made to all GCSEs offered by all awarding bodies in England for teaching from September 2012. We are currently removing outdated specifications from the OCR website.
All teachers delivering OCR GCSEs should now be using the specifications marked as ‘from 2012’ after the subject e.g. for GCSE ‘Computing – J275 (from 2012)’.
Note: Past papers, mark schemes and examiner reports for outdated specifications are still available on the 'from 2012' version of the qualification and our past papers material finder.
The great thing about this qualification is that it brings a fresh approach to Citizenship Studies through either a full or short course GCSE. The specification and specimen assessment materials are applicable to both full and short courses.
