KS3 assessment for GCSE preparation

We're also providing free KS3 end-of-year tests for our centres, to help you prepare your KS3 students for the new GCSEs. They've been mapped to the requirements of our Edexcel GCSEs (9–1) in English Language and in English Literature to help you track progress across KS3 and familiarise your students with the new GCSE test papers.

11-16 progression support service

Pearson's progression scales and maps represent our view of how learning progresses in a subject, and how understanding and skills build upon each other. These tools give you richer insight into student performance in a way that's reliable and easy to understand. Our progression scales, maps, tests and markbooks will support you to track progression for every student.
