Below, you can find unit codes, exam dates and important cash-in combinations. Please remember that the deadline for making exam entries for this summer is 21 March.

5HS04 Unit 4: Health, Social Care and Early Years in Practice 24 June (am)

Applied GCSE - Single and Double Award

If you're requesting the Single Award after one year, please remember that 100 per cent of the assessments must be taken in the examination series in which the qualification is awarded.

Candidates topping up from the Single Award to the Double Award are allowed to re-use the set of unit results which have already been certificated for a Single Award to count towards the corresponding Double Award in a subsequent examination series. Again, please remember that 100 per cent of the assessments must be taken in the examination series to satisfy the terminal requirements for the Double Award.

Candidates wishing to the re-take the GCSE will be permitted to carry forward the results from the controlled assessment unit(s) after certification and only re-take the externally assessed units. Previously banked results for externally assessed units cannot be used when re-taking even if they are better than the results achieved in the re-take.
