Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment
CCEA Curriculum Monitoring Programme 2018-19


Unit A2 1 is assessed externally in a Personal and Critical Investigation.

We provide a stimulus paper with a list of themes at the beginning of September. Students use these themes as a starting point for their Personal and Critical Investigation. Teachers guide their students on the suitability of their selected written investigation in line with the contexts explained in Unit A2 1. The written work and practical work for Unit A2 1 inform each other, and are integrated, but marked separately.

Centres must submit the 10003000 word written investigation to us for assessment by a date that we set, which is normally in January of the year of assessment.
