The Sounds Familiar? section contains resources relevant to The Study of Spoken Language. For other aspects of GCSE study there is also Poetry & Performance and Texts in Context.
FAQs: The Frequently Asked Questions section for each specification is updated regularly. Please refer to this for helpful information on delivering the controlled assessment tasks. This further supplements the material available in the Teacher Guidance Document.
Teacher Guidance: A Teacher Guidance Document on Controlled Assessment is available for each specification. This gives you further detail on the tasks outlined in the specification. It elaborates on the controls for each task and the opportunities for centres to contextualise tasks. It also gives general advice on the management of Controlled Assessment.
Launch events for the revised specifications were held in March 2009. View the presentation given on the days.
