  1. Sorry if this has already been covered recently (I'm sure it must have been in previous years) but I can't see it below.
    I see that the pre-release material is due to be released this Thursday.
    And I also see that the instructions for conduct still say
    "6.2 Candidates may have access to the scenario at least <font size="3" face="Trebuchet MS,Trebuchet MS">three weeks </font>before the examination window."
    In the past I've given it to pupils 3 weeks before the scheduled exam date, but this year I'd really like to give it to them to look at over the easter holidays. The above wording certainly states that I can do this, but the word "may" implies that they mean "at most" 3 weeks before (i.e. "at the earliest"). Or did they mean "should" rather than "may"? Maybe I should just give it to them anyway as I don't see it makes any ethical difference - it would just mean that they're more likely to get round to looking at it for themselves before I get to spoon feed it to them anyway.
     
  2. Excellent. Thank you Gareth. It would be nice to change the wording in the ICE - or am I the only one that's ever found it misleading?
