Edexcel A level Music and Music Technology: March 2022 update
Read the latest news for Edexcel A level Music and A level Music Technology. This will include the latest information for summer 2022.
Submission of the NEA components must be made by 15 May 2022. This will be via the Learner Work Transfer portal. You will need to digitally upload files for your sample.
The administrative support guide gives details of how to present the work for the examiner.
You will need to complete either the PDF or Word version of a PAS and CAS form for each candidate when submitting work for assessment.
Each candidate will need to complete either the PDF or Word version of the logbook for each component and then both yourself and the candidate will need to sign the declaration when submitting work for assessment.
What are the grade boundaries?
The controlled assessment and coursework grades will be awarded at the end of each examination series using the standard code of practice awarding process.
Grade boundaries, which are subject to change each exam series, are published on the website on the grade boundaries page. For summer 2022, they'll be available to download from results day: 18 August 2022 for GCSE.
To receive a result for a linear qualification, all of the marks achieved from different components are added together and the candidate receives a grade for the qualification. There is no need for a uniform mark scale - a single grade is issued to each candidate.
How do I submit the assessment material?
How to present the material is detailed in the Administrative Support Guide. You will need to upload all material through the Learner Work Transfer (LWT) portal. There are guides on how to use the LWT system.
Support sessions and Q and As
Over the next couple of months I have some support sessions for submitting NEA and also some drop-in Q and A sessions. You can find details of these ssessions and book a place via the link.
