GCSE Science

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am writing this letter to inform you of some important dates regarding your child’s GCSE Science controlled assessment.

As part of guidelines set out by the WJEC examination board, pupils following a GCSE Science course are required to submit two or three pieces of controlled assessment, comprising 10% of the total GCSE grade.

These pieces of controlled assessment must be sat in a specified time frame under examination conditions. Attendance to these sessions is compulsory.

Your child has been informed of the dates and times of these sessions by their Science teachers, but I am writing this letter to you to ask for your support in conjunction with the department to ensure the best possible outcome for your child.

Controlled assessment 1 – Wednesday 16th January 2019 Lessons 1-4

Controlled Assessment 2 – Monday 4th February 2019 Lessons 1-4

Pupils following the GCSE Separate science pathway will be given different dates for their assessments by their subject teachers.

Thank you for your support and cooperation in this matter.

Yours Faithfully,

Mrs J Nicholls

Leader of Learning Science
