Geography students complete two controlled assessments. The local fieldwork investigation accounts for 15% of the final GCSE markl; the issues investigation accounts for 10% of the final mark. The controlled assessment titles change every year and we are not allowed to publish them on the website.
Students complete the two controlled assessment tasks at the end of Year 10 and beginning of Year 11. Teachers will give them further details at the appropriate point in time.
The exam board has provided the following examples of marked controlled assessments.
