New ASG, PAS and CAS forms

We have published the new Administrative Support Guide, PAS form and CAS form to submit with student work for assessment in summer 2020. Please use the new forms to record marks and comments for submission with your centre sample in May. If you have already recorded work and have used the previous forms from last year, please don't feel you need to copy this across to the new forms. The ASG includes important information about each component for the 2020 exam series, so please do read this to ensure you have this information.

Exam entries

Exam entries for summer 2020 assessment must be made by 21 February 2020. After this date late entry fees may be charged. Please note that your exams officer will have their own internal deadlines in order to get the information necessary to make entries.

The entry code for GCSE Music is 1MU0. However, there are some option codes for any students resitting the qualification who wish to carry forward marks from the previous series.

Access to scripts

The free access to scripts service will close on Friday 13 December. If you want to download and save any scripts from your students summer 2019 exams then you will need to do this by Friday 13 December.

Scripts do not have examiner annotation on them. The marked script allows teachers to evaluate how the student performed on particular questions in relation to what they have been taught; the Principal Examiner's Report and the exemplars that we make available demonstrate how the mark scheme is applied.

If scripts have been marked "traditionally" (i.e. not online), centres will have to request them via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.
