Edexcel GCSEs in science ACCREDITED

Discussion in 'Science' started by Edexcelscienceteam, Feb 11, 2011.

    We are delighted to announce that Edexcel have now received confirmation of accreditation of our GCSEs in Science, Biology and Physics.
    The regulators would like us to make some small changes to the external assessment on the C2 module. As this is used in GCSE Chemistry and GCSE Additional Science, we are now addressing these changes, and hope to achieve accreditation on these remaining two qualifications very soon.
    Pre-publication final versions of the specifications will appear on our website (www.edexcel.com/science2011) during the weekend and we’ll be sending you a printed copy of all our specifications once they’re all accredited.

    If you would like to book onto one of our Launch or Getting Started events, please visit our Science 2011 website: www.edexcel.com/science2011events

  2. Great news :)
    Any idea when we can download the accredited specs from the Edexcel website, Kathryn?

    Please flag up if they have changed from the draft, which has been around for a while and most people I guess have been working towards.

    The pre-publication final versions are now on our website with areas of change highlighted. Biology was the area where we were required to make the most changes. If anyone has started teaching Biology, next week we'll be sending out a guidance document on areas you may wish to consider briefly re-visiting with your students.

  6. Does this also include the Edexcel IGCSEs or are these still awaiting confirmation?

    I'm afraid this only refers to the GCSEs in Science, Biology and Physics. We are still in consultation with Ofqual about the IGCSEs in science.
