Our draft specification has been updated and resubmitted to Ofqual for accreditation. It is published to enable teachers to have early sight of our proposed approach to GCSE Design and Technology. Further changes may be required and no assurance can be given at this time that the proposed qualification will be made available in its current form, or that it will be accredited in time for teaching in September 2017.
The sample assessment materials include exemplar question papers and mark schemes.
