AQA Speaking test: task not required by moderator if no TPF?

    Have I interpreted this correctly? If you look on the reverse of the candidate record form for the GCSE Speaking assessment, it says: "Was a Task Planning Form used for the recorded task? Yes/No" Then underneath "If so, please confirm that you have submitted a copy of the task..."
    Does that mean you don't have to submit the task if there isn't a TPF? In that case, how would they know if all the bullet points have been covered or not?
    I'm going to send the task anyway.

  2. I noticed this too and I think it might be a misprint for "If no, please confirm...." In any case as you say, they'll need the task to be able to mark it properly.
  3. I understood it to mean, if you ticked YES to say they used a task planning form then you must submit the task planning form.
    Just received my sample today-took ages to get everything prepared to send off.

    See link on this page on AQA website for checklist of what to send the examiner:
    Tasks must be sent to examiner and this must include all of the 'unexpected questions'. The task is the list of bullet points.
    The task planning sheet is something different, this is the prompt sheet completed by pupils as an option. If completed by the pupil, it must be sent with the recording.

    I know what to send; I think you missed the point I was making.
