Examinations

There are two one-hour examinations for GCSE Engineering. Together they are worth 40 percent of the final award. We set and mark the papers. They are available in January and summer.

The exams test students on the content of Unit 3: Engineering Technology.

Paper 1 tests students on their knowledge of the use and impact of:

  • ICT;
  • automation;
  • components;
  • modern materials; and
  • control technology.

Students are also tested on their knowledge and understanding of products, tools and equipment associated with the engineering industry.

Paper 2 is based on pre-release materials. It tests students on their research into a product specified in these materials.

For more information, see the specification.
