Why move to Pearson Edexcel?

  • Our exams are fully open book, which is clearer for teachers and students.
    We’ve made sure our exam papers are student-friendly. They’re clearly presented in sections and with logical question styles - so your students can really show what they know.
  • Each AO has equal weighting, with each assessed in the appropriate question(s), meaning you can help your students to focus their response on the skill required.
  • We run a range of events including local networks which include specific training content. So far, we’ve looked at: incorporating other interpretations into responses at AS and A level, approaching the post-2000 poetry anthology, designing appropriate coursework texts and tasks, and comparison in the poetry paper. Find out more about our events and access past training material:

  • We also offer a coursework advisory service, which offers advice on your students’ coursework text choices and titles.
