HI all, My school does core science in year 10 and additional science in year 11. Because the summer exams are in May and we are struggling to complete the course and do the controlled assessments in time I am thinking of cashing in the "Core GCSE" in november instead of June. This will also have the advantage that we have a better idea of grade boundaries by then. Obviously the down side is that the 40% rule means the pupils will have to also resit a module in november with only the resit mark counting. Are other schools also considering this or just cashing in in June and moving onto additonal in Year11?
