Controlled assessment materials for GCSE specifications are available to download from Interchange.
Ofqual confirmed changes that had to be made to all GCSEs offered by all awarding bodies in England for teaching from September 2012. Specifications with the annotation (from 2009) or (from 2010) are now redundant and so to ensure our website is up to date and easy to use, we will be removing outdated specifications from the OCR website by the end of March 2014.
Specifications that now remain on the website have the annotation ‘from 2012’ after the subject e.g. for GCSE ‘Computing – J275 (from 2012)’.
All teachers delivering OCR GCSEs should now be using the specifications marked as being for use from 2012.

Our Classical Civilisation GCSE covers the study of both Greek and Roman literature and civilisations. There is also the option to take Classical Civilisation GCSE as a short course, which offers further flexibility on either literature in translation, or on civilisation, or both. Please note that the specification and specimen assessment materials are applicable to both the Short Course and Full Course.
