Teachers should consider evidence including performance on mock exams and non-exam assessment.

Ofqual said “clear guidance on how to do this fairly and robustly this will be provided to schools and colleges”.

“The exam boards will then combine this information with other relevant data, including prior attainment, and use this information to produce a calculated grade for each student, which will be a best assessment of the work they have put in.”

If there were ‘mocks’ it would be done at home anyway so nothing to worry about.
If the school want to assess you more, I assume it would be giving you like more past papers and stuff to complete for more evidence on why you should get that grade

I think it’s highly unlikely they’d give you mocks at home to complete and use that to help you determine your grade. It’s quite easy to just look up mark schemes for past papers and get high marks on papers while still making it look like your own work, especially since it’d be online, there’d be no regulation whatsoever. You shouldn’t stress about it because what’s done is done and your grades will most likely be determined from past mocks and past exams in class, (also they mention “past attainment” based on the copious amount of data exam boards have on you, in which case i think they’re talking about GCSE’s?)

Either a mock they will decide when to be taken or according to previous marks from ur teacher with evidence. I hope its not the first choice and that’s what im willing to know.
