Dear Joe and all Please help. Our school does the GCSE two years early, so I have been doing controlled assessments with years 8 and 9 (they come out with poor results, but that's another story). Anyway I'm supposed to do one with year 7 this term, but I don't think that OCR would allow this. It wouldn't be a practice, it would be the real thing. It's sort of like doing one in year 9 if we weren't doing the GCSE early, but I think it's a bit worse because year 7 is really, really young. Is this allowable for OCR? Thank you!
