We’ve updated the Instructions for the Administration of the ISAs document for Human Biology: updated task sheet release instructions; e-Submission of marks.
Version 1.5 of the A-level Human Biology specification is now available. This covers the production of common ISAs and EMPAs for A-level Biology and/or A-level Human Biology.
See our updated ISA/EMPA timelines for 2015/2016.
We will be producing common ISAs and EMPAs for A-level Biology and A-level Human Biology in 2016. Read more about changes to entry codes and what to do if you enter the same students for both qualifications in the same exam series.
We have successfully negotiated with Ofqual to make changes to the way our A-level practical assessments are administered in schools and colleges. ISAs and EMPAs now have staggered release dates, shorter assessment windows in which they can be taken and the Teachers' Notes no longer have the questions, so the materials are more secure.
