How is this course assessed (course code: 8462)?
There are two forms of assessment for all of The Local Teachers’ structured courses: formative assessments and final summative assessments.
Students will have formative assessments throughout the course and can be taken in various forms as many times as possible. The summative assessments are the examinations offered by exam boards, such as AQA, which the student will take at the end of the course in any approved exam centre across the country.
Formative assessments include:
- End of topic assessments – 50-mark tests made up of foundation- and higher-tier questions
- Tutor Marked Assignments to consolidate your learning
- Online Quizzes to help you stay focussed and monitor your progression
- Revision materials – various tasks to support revision
Final (summative) Assessments structure:
|Paper||Paper 1||Paper 2|
|What is assessed||Topics 1–5: Atomic structure and the periodic table; Bonding, structure, and the properties of matter; Quantitative chemistry, Chemical changes; and Energy changes||Topics 6–10: The rate and extent of chemical change; Organic chemistry; Chemical analysis, Chemistry of the atmosphere; and Using resources|
|Length of paper||1 hour 45 minutes||1 hour 45 minutes|
|Percentage of grade||50%||50%|
Please check AQA’s official exam series timetables for 2018-2019 to find out when these, and other, exams will be held. These are subject to change, and therefore should be checked regularly.
