Why choose this specification?

We have developed our new specification in response to your feedback. It has:

  • a clear, simple structure to help students revise for and relate the work done for controlled assessment to the exam
  • a practical approach that encourages students to design and make quality electronic products with creativity, originality and flair using a wide range of electronic components, new technologies and modern electronic devices. The packaging of the electronic circuit can include individually designed cases made from a range of resistant materials, textiles, card or recycled materials, or students can purchase a commercially made case and modify it to meet their project needs
  • single tiered assessment covering grades A*–G to cater for students of all abilities 
  • controlled assessment advisers to provide teachers with guidance on the controlled assessment component.
