GCSE 2012 reforms: Impact on Health and Social Care specification

 Health and Social Care   From September 2012 GCSEs went linear. Please ensure that from September 2013 you are teaching the current Edexcel GCSE 2012 linear specification.
The Edexcel GCSE 2009 modular Health and Social Care specification is available to download below, and has a final assessment window of June 2013.

The Edexcel GCSE 2012 linear Health and Social Care specification has been accredited and is now available for first teaching in September 2012 (for two-year courses). You can upload the PDF from the specification option below.

The main changes are:

  • No content change to the specification
  • Linear assessment structure: all units are taken at the end of the course
  • Controlled assessment conducted at any time but submitted at the end of the course
