Hi, yes they said an online mock (1 per subject is what I've been told) sometime in May/early June.
They will reach out to you soon asking for you to send them tutor contact details and work done this year. And they said they can arrange tutorials if you need help collating evidence.
Hope this answers your question. PM me if you find out more etc

Ah right do you have a tutor are they giving you one? I hope they don't charge extra because so frustrating!
I don't have a tutor 😢😢
They've not assigned me one but they might
they've said to me £250- £450 per subject for the assessments and mocks
And I agree they're definitely taking advantage of the situation

£2.2k!!! That's ridiculous. Honestly, i'm lowkey regretting getting myself into this mess and wouldn't recommend you do the same unless you absolutely need to go to uni this year and you're confident you're getting the grades with the evidence you do have (so 1 grade above, not too far off if that makes sense). They've released the edexcel timetable for international a levels (without any concrete dates but a step in the right direction). So i would revise for the autumn series and get past papers done. But on the other hand, if you want to give this a shot and if money isn't really a problem then I'd say go for it because they said they'll arrange for a tutor to assess you and get high confidence evidence. (personally i had to turn to mum and dad to bail me out bc i don't have a cent to my name )

I've never really understood what it means by high confidence evidence. Does it mean the quality of your revision notes is high? Or is it that you have enough notes for them to consider you?
This whole evidence thing is confusing to me.
And me too, my parents paid hehe

JCQ has released a sheet as to what they mean here ----> http://www.jcq.org.uk/media-centre/n...on-of-evidence

But in General they need to know if you have covered the whole spec and to what level you have covered it.
If you have notes that fully go through the spec then that helps. But the main indication of you covering the spec is based on scored work - homework, assignments but mainly test papers/mocks.
In a logical sense, a person who got a C in a test paper which may be 60% (this is just a general example), has only understood 60% of the spec hence why they only got 60% of the questions right. Hence why test papers/mocks are a high confidence indicator as it has a clear correlation to your understanding of the spec and its contents.

Ahh I see. But how would that apply to private candidates who taught themselves this year? As they didn't do mocks and stuff marked by someone else

I have been doing past papers and stuff but I just went through and marked myself😥
That's the issue, some private candidates have had a centre or qualified tutor give them tests and mocks over the year; but the majority of private candidates have been self-teaching. That's why most of the centres that private candidates are transferring to are asking students to sit tests, and use the results as a heavy indication as to the results the student would've got this summer. In my opinion it's very unfair since nearly all students stopped revising we were told exams were cancelled, and using this as a heavy indicator is quite disadvantageous compared to other students in school; but in their defence, this is the only way to assess a student and be sure they get a grade that the centre is confident to give them.

Yeah! Honestly when it was announced that exams were cancelled I dropped my pen and highlighter and didn't revise since.
Fair enough it's their only way to assess a student but they won't even say when, how many and what the papers will be

Nope, but I haven't sent them my written work yet so maybe that's why?
