Updated GCSE Computer Science (8520) specification

Monday 26 Feb 2018

We’ve updated our specification following Ofqual’s decision on the role of NEA in GCSE Computer Science.

NEA will no longer count towards the final GCSE grade (9–1), but schools and colleges must still ensure that all students have the opportunity to spend 20 timetabled hours on the programming project.

Version 2.0 of the updated teachers’ notes are also available via e-AQA secure key materials (SKM), our secure extranet.
