Pearson Edexcel Mocks Service
At Pearson, we are continuing to develop new and innovative ways to support schools, colleges and teachers. We know how important it is for your students to be able to sit mock exam papers that they haven’t previously seen in preparation for their live exams at GCSE and A level, but we are also aware that mock exams can be a real burden on teachers’ time. That’s why we are offering a new Mocks Service.
What is the Mocks Service?
The Mocks Service provides schools and colleges with the Pearson Edexcel GCSE and A level exam papers for use in mock examinations. The papers are sat by students and marked by either Pearson examiners or the school teaching staff, with the results and item level analysis being be made available via ResultsPlus.
There will be three levels of service:
- Paper-based Pearson-marked for GCSE and A level
- Onscreen Pearson-marked (for GCSE only)
- Onscreen teacher-marked (for GCSE only)
Take a look at the infographic to read the full details and cost for each level of service.
We're delighted to have been working with The Dean Trust, a Multi Academy Trust with thirteen schools, who piloted our new Mocks service in February 2020. Here's what they had to say about their experience of using the service.
"Our ambition was always to be able to ‘press a button’ and be able to see how our schools are performing. School by school comparison was important to us and Pearson's Mocks service meant that we could also compare our pupil's performance with the Pearson national average for each question, which was an added and highly beneficial bonus. The Mocks service provided us with the assurance that the assessments were consistent, there was no unconscious or conscious bias and it was marked and validated by a recognised and highly regarded awarding body. Exceeded our expectations."
