I hope the term is going well and that you are making good progress with your coursework submissions and exam preparation. Much of the information I flagged in my April update (exam timetables, prescribed editions rules & setting up coursework for next year etc) remains relevant in the run-in to June. You can access it on the English Subject page along with all other previous editions.

Helping teachers with their coursework and SLE submissions

Last week, I spoke to over 250 teachers during 4 live support sessions to talk through how to make their submissions prior to the May/June 2023 exam series.

To make sure all teachers can access support at a time that suits them, there are pre-recorded sessions for each qualification group on my YouTube channel.

The videos go along with slides and guidance documents for each qualification:
