New Year 11 - controlled assessment
« on: January 24, 2015, 07:23:19 PM »
Hi

Just got a new year 11 arrived from another country...!! So has not done any of the content or controlled assessment -  AQA B.

We are on with catching her up with the content, but just wondered if anyone knew, if she was able to get special consideration or something for the controlled assessment units or whether I would just have to get her to write them and hope that they turn out ok within the time we have??

Any thoughts would be great

thanks

We have one student we are entering for the AQA Certificate (iGCSE) which has no controlled  assessment requirement. There are four units to cover as well as a pre-release (on energy due February). Does what she's already covered match this spec?  Might be easier?

You should talk to the Access Arrangements and Special Considerations Department at AQA through your Examinations Officer. Itsurely must be the same picture across their subjects?

I have a similar situation: the exam board argued there was enough time to do the C/A so he had to complete it
