Additional Science assessment

Assessment is the responsibility of OCR

This is about the 2006 course. The 2011 course is similar. See the OCR 2011 specification.

The assessment of GCSE Additional Science is based on:

  • Module tests for each of the modules
  • A terminal examination with pre-release stimulus material.
  • Internal assessment of practical skills consists of a practical investigation carried out by the student
