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.
What is the Mocks Service?
The Mocks Service provides schools and colleges with 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 for GCSE and A level
- onscreen GCSE for English Language, English Literature and Mathematics.
