Please note: this section relates to the legacy specification. The final resit opportunity will be January 2019 (for externally assessed units only - no controlled assessment units available). This will also be the last opportunity for certification.


In GCSE Home Economics, students are assessed against three assessment objectives. They must:

AO1: recall, select and communicate their knowledge and understanding of a range of contexts;

AO2: apply skills, knowledge and understanding in a variety of contexts and in planning and carrying out investigations and tasks; and

AO3: analyse and evaluate information, sources and evidence, make reasoned judgements and present conclusions.
