Guidance on notes length for GCSE controlled assessments
From September 2013, students may have access to no more than two A4 pages of notes during the task-taking phase of GCSE controlled assessments.
These notes may be typed or hand-written. The permitted content of the notes is described on the relevant pages of each specification.
As previously, the notes do not need to be completed on an Edexcel form. These notes should be retained with the students' responses in a secure place, but will not be required as part of the submitted sample for moderation.
This guidance is intended to support a consistent approach across departments and schools, and to clarify our expectations in this area.
