Mocks have never been so important – not only to help students understand what to expect and how it will feel when they take their live exams, but to also help teachers identify the gaps to focus on revision and intervention.
Summer mocks - key dates and deadlines
A number of teachers have been in contact, to ask about using the Mocks Service to inform teacher assessed grades for GCSE. We have created a timeline with key dates and deadlines if you are considering using the Mocks Service to inform your teacher assessed grades along with a guide to support you.

What is the Mocks Service?
The Mocks Service provides schools and colleges with the Pearson Edexcel GCSE and A level exam papers* for use in mock examinations. The papers are sat by students, marked by Pearson examiners and the mock results are uploaded to ResultsPlus for item level analysis.
There are two levels of service:
- paper-based Pearson-marked for GCSE and A level
- onscreen Pearson-marked GCSE with papers available for GCSE English Language, English Literature and Mathematics.
Our free Access to Scripts service will enable access to students’ mock exam papers to see the answers they’ve written and the marks they've scored for each question.
*Locked past papers will be used as part of the Mocks Service. This means padlocks will remain in place until centres have completed mocks cycles. These papers are still freely available to schools and colleges who have access to EOL.
