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 A622/01 and A624/01 units.
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
The final assessment opportunity for these qualifications (J322, J344) will be summer 2018. Please note there will not be a retake opportunity for these qualifications.
We have made the difficult decision not to redevelop GCSE Engineering. However, you may be interested in our Cambridge Nationals in Engineering suite. They're vocationally-related qualifications at GCSE level geared to key sector requirements.
Our innovative qualifications offer learners access to 'real-life' aspects of engineering practices. They also have the opportunity to work with a range of materials to manufacture useful, well-engineered and designed products.
