Examinations

Students must complete two examinations for GCSE Manufacturing. The exams each last 1 hour, and together they are worth 40 percentof the final award.

We set and mark the exams. They test students’ knowledge and understanding of Unit 3: Manufacturing Technology. They are available in January and summer.

Paper 1 lasts 1 hour. It 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 manufacturing industry.

Paper 2 lasts 1 hour. This paper is based on pre-release materials. It tests students on their research into a product specified in the pre-release materials.
