Details of the amendment

As a result of centre feedback Section D of Unit 1 has been amended. These positive changes have been made to further clarify the requirement of the specification, which we hope will result in efficiencies in teaching the content and ensuring teaching time is spent on the appropriate skills. 

Please see this screen shot, taken from the specification document (Unit 1, Section D), highlighting where changes have been made. The first assessment series affected by these changes will be January 2020.

Updated Sample Assessment Materials will be available on our website from 30 June 2019.

If you have any questions please contact us via our new Support Portal.
