Updated 5 August 2020: We have now included the specification clarification summary for Combined Science A.

These versions of the specifications apply from the June 2021 exam series.

These documents are also available in the 'Planning' section of the 'Planning and teaching' page for each of the qualification pages.
Please note that these changes have been made based on feedback from teachers we received before the coronavirus crisis. We will let you know if Ofqual provides any further guidance for future series.
