By QTS Maths Tutor|2021-01-24T17:59:53+00:00January 24th, 2021|Categories: Numeracy Skills Blog|
The summer 2021 main GCSE exams have been cancelled by the government which means teacher assessed grades have been put in place over exams. The GCSE qualifications are vital especially maths and English since they are required for many things such as A levels, Universities and most employment. If you are a student in school or college, you will be given a teacher assessed grade. If you aren’t a student in school or college, for example you are an adult learner, homeschooled, not in mainstream education or you are an external learner, then there is some uncertainty on how you will obtain a GCSE grade. The rest of this page should help guide you through teacher assessed grades and the alternative qualifications you can take to further your studies or employment.   Teacher assessed grades for those in schools and colleges The teacher assessed grade can be increased through external controlled assessments. You should try your best in the mock exams and work that you are doing as well, you can take an external controlled assessment which will be submitted to your college or school to help with the teacher’s assessed grades. The external controlled assessments are just like the mock exams. MME is a provider for the controlled assessments for GCSE maths exams. GCSE Exams and GCSE resits November 2021 GCSE resits are still going ahead as well as the iGCSE qualifications which you can book with MME as an external candidate. For more information, call MME on 020 3633 5145 as well as looking at MME’s page for the GCSE maths retake to get more information on these exams. Teacher assessed grades for external candidates MME and GCSE examiners have looked to find a way for adult learners, people that are outside of full time education and people who are homeschooled, to obtain GCSE grades this summer. They have come up with assessments that you can book on MME’s dedicated page, GCSE maths controlled assessment to obtain these grades. Alternatives to GCSE exams and teacher assessed grades When you have applied for jobs or University, you would have seen a phrase which is ‘Give your GCSE or GCSE equivalent qualifications‘ since there are alternative qualifications you can obtain. There is another name for GCSE equivalent qualifications which is functional skills. Most Universities and employers recognise and accept functional skills level 2 since it is a GCSE equivalent qualification. The links that are provided below should give you a better understanding of functional skills:   Nurses and Trainee Teachers There are different options that you can pick if you are looking at nursing or teacher trag courses. The most popular is  GCSE equivalency test results since they are preferred over the functional skills by SCITT’s and most of the training providers. Even though this qualification is recognised by most, it isn’t universal therefore you want to check with the employer or course provider that they accept this qualification before you book in for it.
