Over the two year course, pupils must complete at least 2 oral tasks and 2 written tasks which make up 60% of
the total mark. In Year 10, pupils will already have completed two written tasks and at least one spoken task.
During the Autumn and Spring terms there will be the completion of any written and oral tasks.
In the June examination series, the Reading and Listening Examinations make up the remaining 40% of the GCSE mark.
The reading and listening components are tiered: Foundation (grades C-G) and Higher (A*-C).
The teacher will discuss with your child which tier is suitable and the teacher’s decision is final.
At St Michael’s Catholic School, we follow the AQA exam specification.
