Centres will be receiving the hard copy briefs for 6MU02. This is being sent to most centres as you may have some learners re-taking this unit alongside their A2 units. There will not be hard copies of the composing briefs for AS level sent to centres and these will only be available on the website.

We have been able to make available the Resource Booklets to accompany the Sample Assessment Material available online. This will enable you to have an idea of the types of scores included with the exam paper and use these as mock exams.
