There has been increasing pressure on staff from parents and students to accept coursework which is handed in late. It has been decided that there will be a strict deadline for all GCSE, AS and A2 coursework and portfolio assignments for summer exams. In future, this will be the final day of the Spring Term. Students must hand in their work by this deadline. This will give staff the proper amount of time for marking and internal moderation procedures. It will also allow lessons in the Summer Term to be used for revision purposes, which will benefit students much more than time spent trying to gain one or two extra marks on coursework. Any exceptions to this deadline must be agreed in advance by the Examination Officer and the Headmaster.

 

There is an increasing problem with plagiarism of coursework and with authenticity of work. This is partly due to the increasing use of the internet during coursework. It should be noted that all candidates must sign a declaration that the coursework is their own, and that this has to be verified by their teacher. For any parents who are concerned about whether they can give help to their son or daughter, there is a helpful document on the QCA website (www.qca.org.uk this link opens in a new window) called 'Coursework: a guide for parents'.
