Information for Year 11s about Coursework Assessments and Non-examination Assessments (NEAs)

JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) have advised all schools in the country to share with students, parents and carers their information and guidance (which is aimed specifically at students) when completing and submitting coursework which goes towards their final GCSE grade. This can consist of two aspects: Coursework Assessments such as a Sports Studies module or Non-Examination Assessments (NEAs) such as the Art & Design 10-hour practical exam.

It is vital that students are fully aware of the importance that the work they submit must be their own or risk being awarded zero marks or disqualification. Many of our Year 11 students are in the middle of coursework completion at this time.

Please find their information guide below on both Courswork Assessments and NEAs.
