Thank you for your continued feedback on our new Cambridge National Certificate in Information Technologies.
As a result of your feedback, we have made some improvements to the teaching content and guidance in the specification and an adjustment to the assessment of the internally assessed unit (R013).
A student can, at your discretion, attempt to improve their internal assessment result after moderation but will need to submit a new task for assessment rather than amend a previously submitted task. Our amended specification includes the full details of this change.
There are no changes to the arrangements for the examined unit. Students will still have the option to resit this once before they complete the qualification.
We will always use the best result from both assessment units to calculate the certification result.
Ready for first teaching September 2017, we’re delighted to launch our new Cambridge National Certificate in Information Technologies.
Our new Level 1/2 Cambridge National Certificate in Information Technologies focuses on data, how it is collected, used, processed, interpreted and presented within the framework of an IT project life cycle. It will allow learners to be confident IT users across a range of digital technology, developing their transferable skills and knowledge to continue to be confident IT users with new technology as it emerges.
It has been designed to fit into the curriculum and form a key part of a student’s Progress 8 and Attainment 8 approved subjects (subject to Performance Point confirmation from the DfE).
There are two assessments: one examined and the other internally assessed and externally moderated, each worth 50% of the total qualification.
Like all Cambridge Nationals, there are two exam sessions a year, with opportunities for resits and the best mark counts.
