Watch this video for a quick overview of the tools you can use when deciding between Foundation or Higher Tier, for learners completing GCSE (9-1) Science.

Secure mock papers

We recognise how important it is for your students to be able to sit unseen mock exam papers in preparation for their GCSE (9-1) Science summer exams. To help you with this, we’ve provided two sets of secure mock papers at both Foundation and Higher tier. You’ll need an Edexcel Online username and password to access them. See also our walking, talking mock videos below for extra support with the practical and maths questions.

Mini Walking Talking Mocks

Our new walking talking mock videos focus on how to approach the practical style questions and maths based questions. Each video provides several opportunities to practice answering and marking these types of questions. You may also like to use these as a teaching and learning tool that can be used as a starter, plenary or homework activity.
