Re: Year 11 Controlled Assessment
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.
Mrs J Nicholls
