Just wondering when other schools are entering students for their exams... Currently, at KS4 we teach our specialisms. Students have equal lessons of Biology, Chemistry and Phyiscs over their fortnightly timetable. For the past few years we have examined students in June of Year 10 for Core (with opportunities for retakes later on) and June of Year 11 for Additional. Now the 40% rule has complicated matters somewhat! However, this is what we have decided to do: - June of Year 10: The first 90 minute combined papers for Core (35%) AND Additional (35%) - June of Year 11: The second 90 minute combined papers for Core (40%) AND Additional (40%). We will also submit CAU marks for both Core (25%) and Additional (25%) in June of Year 11 and obviously we will certificate them. Therefore, the only major change to our system is that we have to teach part of core and additional in both Years rather than Core in Year 10 and Additional in Year 11. How are other schools addressing the 40% rule for AQA Science A from next year?
