GCSE Computer Science (8520)
We emailed schools and colleges in July to say that Ofqual had agreed that we can relax some of the rules around the authentication and supervision of the summer 2021 Programming Project.
In July we also said that you’ll still need to submit your centre Programming Project Declaration and time log for summer 2021. As an update we can confirm that the Programming Project Declaration, time log and Candidate Record Form (CRF) are no longer required for 2021.
To recap – these are all of the changes that you need to know about for the Programming Project for summer 2021:
There are no changes to the specification content and no changes to either the Paper 1 or Paper 2 assessment.
We know that you’ll want to know more about the changes for next summer. We’ll publish further information in the coming months with updates about the summer 2021 exams.
