Reminders for summer 2023 assessment
As you are aware, in summer 2023, assessment is going to be in full, without adaptations. This means that;
- NEA would be completed in full, with the high quality, fully functioning final prototype
- NEA is assessed against the full criteria and marks (100 for GCSE and 120 for A level)
- No advance information for the exam.
