Pearson Mocks Service spring 2023 window
The Pearson Mocks Service spring 2023 series window is now open. This paid-for service enables students to gain real experience of the examination process, by helping to draw out the areas where they require additional support, before sitting their high-stake exams.
Schools use Edexcel GCSE History exam papers in mock examinations and after the papers are sat by students they are marked by Pearson examiners and the mock results are uploaded to ResultsPlus for item level analysis. Papers are easy to purchase and can be sat at a time to suit both you and your students.
