Exams

Year 11 GCSE Set Task Exam:
Pupils begin their exam preparation by selecting one starting point from the OCR Set Task paper. The paper is available from January which gives pupils 9 weeks to prepare for their exam which takes place in March. The work they produce over this period creates 75% of their final mark. Pupils then complete a 10 hour supervised examination to develop their ideas into a realised outcome (25%).
