Available for in-centre and home use, our onscreen mocks are built to support flexibility in delivering assessments and accessibility. Building on our experience of delivering onscreen assessments across the world, we've worked extensively to ensure that the paper-based and onscreen mock examination experiences are as similar as possible.
We offer onscreen mocks for GCSE (9-1) English Language, English Literature and Maths, as well as International GCSE English Language, English Literature and Maths onscreen assessment.

Questions about onscreen mocks?
Please contact the Customer Services team for Qualifications using our Contact Us form. Please refer to the Mocks Service in your communication.
We have worked extensively to keep the onscreen mock examination experience as close as possible to that of the paper-based assessment, but there are some questions where the experience may be different between learners who take the examination onscreen and those who do so on paper.
Whilst the skills required may be different between the two modes of delivery, the knowledge and understanding of the concepts required to successfully complete these questions will remain the same.
