HELP - just don't get this & have to present to SLT tomorrow (Edexcel GCSE)! :o[

  1. I know there are two written assessments in Unit 3 but the speaking & listening tasks are there three of these - 1 for role, 1 for group and 1 individual speech or is it just one which you mark those three aspects collectively so to speak..

    In other words Unit 3 - is it 2 written + 1 speech OR 2 written + 3 speech?

    Not sure which board you are with, but it's three separate S&L tasks for AQA - one individual, one group and one role.
    You can use the entire marking criteria for all three as there may be aspects you can award marks for from the three separate areas listed.
    2 writing; 3 speaking. Good luck with presentation!
  3. Sorry should have said this is EDEXCEL

    Sorry too, I saw the Edexcel in the heading after I'd posted! I would imagine it's the same, have just downloaded the spec for other purposes so will check!

    It does say three speaking and listening tasks in the spec, and then two written tasks under the 'Spoken Language' heading. Once again, good luck!
  6. thanks - that's my problem basically - it's a bit ambiguous as it could be read (methinks) as three in total or three + two.
    However, as AQA follows that pattern I should think it likely Edexcel would be the same. Anyone out there currently doing Edexcel like to confirm?

    I don't see how it's ambiguous. Spoken language is completely different from S&L
  8. I teach Edexcel Gruoch is right. Relax - problem solved
