Three AS/A Level Applied ICT units (G041, G054 and G055) have pre-release tasks and a case study which, together with the exam, provide the external assessment for the unit.
The tasks and case study are published on the qualification page from 1 September and then sent to centres on the basis of estimated entries in the following March.
Candidates can be given the pre-release tasks at any time before the exam, but it is essential they are adequately prepared before starting the tasks.
The work produced in response to the pre-release tasks must be submitted to the teacher when it is completed and kept secure until it is returned to the candidate at the start of the exam.
Both candidates and centres must declare that the work is the candidate’s own.
Each candidate must sign a declaration before submitting their work to their teacher to confirm the work is their own. Please complete the following candidate authentication statement (CCS271) and retain it within your centre:
Teachers are required to declare the work submitted is the candidate’s own work. Please complete a centre authentication form (CCS272) and send it with the exam scripts to the examiner:
Please submit the candidate work with the completed question paper at the end of the exam.
