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 B681/03/04, B682/03/04 and B683/03/04 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 this qualification (J271) will be summer 2018.
Our GCSE Science provision is changing. GCSE Environmental and Land-Based Science is not available for redevelopment as part of the government programme of GCSE reform. However, our Gateway Science and Twenty First Century Science suites have been redeveloped for first teaching from September 2016. We particularly recommend our new Combined Science (Double Award) and Biology specifications. To find out more, visit our new qualification pages below.
This qualification is particularly useful for schools that want to add a ‘rural’ dimension to their specialist school application.
