Below 5 there was a U ungraded grade. Once setting up a new CMS install had been mastered, they then installed Joomla with accordian menus, added categories and articles followed by extensions such as back-up, online shops, membership systems, blogs, social websites, photo extensions and online content portals and started using them live.
From the first assessment series incontrolled assessment replaced coursework in various subjects, requiring more rigorous exam-like conditions for much of the non-examination assessed work, and reducing the opportunity for outside help in coursework.
The following lists are sourced from the exam board websites. Subjects[ edit ] The list of currently available GCSE subjects is much shorter than before the reforms, as the new qualifications in England all have core requirements set by the regulator, Ofqual, for each subject.
Numerous subjects have been added and changed, and various new subjects are offered in the modern languages, ancient languages, vocational fields, and expressive arts, as well as Citizenship courses.
These were a precursor to the later reforms. You are embarrassing yourself with your lack of knowledge and skill in this area. GCSE examinations in English and mathematics were reformed with the syllabus publications, with these first examinations taking places in Introduction of the GCSE[ edit ] GCSEs were introduced in  to establish a national qualification for those who decided to leave school at 16, without pursuing further academic study towards qualifications such as A-Levels or university degrees.
Other removed qualifications include a variety of design technology subjects, which are reformed into a single "design and technology" subject with multiple options, and various catering and nutrition qualifications, which are folded into "food technology".
Alternatively, students can take separate qualifications in chemistry, biology, and physics. What you probably mean is that it is something you can teach and feel comfortable teaching to KS4 students at a basic level.
However, some qualifications from the English boards are available as designated qualifications in some circumstances, due to not being available from WJEC.
Other changes include the move to a numerical grading system, to differentiate the new qualifications from the old-style letter-graded GCSEs, publication of core content requirements for all subjects, and an increase in longer, essay-style questions to challenge students more.
CCEA qualifications are not available in England. The highest grade, 1, was considered equivalent to an O-Level C grade or above, and achievement of this grade often indicated that the student could have taken an O-Level course in the subject to achieve a higher qualification.
However the exam papers sometimes had a choice of questions designed for the more able and the less able candidates. As the two were independent qualifications with separate syllabi, a separate course of study would have to be taken to "convert" a CSE to an O-Level in order to progress to A-Level.
The Baccalaureate itself does not garner a certificate for students. Most qualifications from the English boards are also available, with the exception of English language and the sciences, due to requirements for speaking and practical assessment, respectively.
Although things have started to move towards computing, the same poor level of ICT teaching was in evidence. This remained the highest grade available until Qualifications that are not reformed will cease to be available.
The first block of work that our students were taught was to set-up a database, user and connect the two, and then to install various content management systems and evaluate them.
However, due to legislative requirements for comparability between GCSEs in the three countries, and allowances for certain subjects and qualifications to be available in Wales and Northern Ireland, some qualifications will be available, and the other changes are mostly adopted in these countries as well.
Some subjects will retain coursework on a non-assessed basis, with the completion of certain experiments in science subjects being assumed in examinations, and teacher reporting of spoken language participation for English GCSEs as a separate report.
It is shocking to see teachers who still think that handing out endless little leaflets with guides on how to do every single step in their coursework is actually a worthwhile learning experience for their students, and shocking to see Heads of Department allowing this to happen, showing no leadership, unable to drive up the standards of teaching to something that actually includes learning how to learn!
Alongside this, a variety of low-uptake qualifications and qualifications with significant overlap will cease, with their content being removed from the GCSE options, or incorporated into similar qualifications. Other subjects, especially religious studies, computer science, or physical education, may be compulsory in some schools as these subjects form part of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 4.GCSE ICT Coursework (AQA) watch.
