Edexcel Gcse Coursework

The final date for submitting your marks and samples of work is 15 May 2016. By this date you must have:

  • submitted your controlled assessment marks to Edexcel, and
  • sent your sample to the moderator.

How do I submit the marks?

By 15 May, you must have submitted your coursework/controlled assessment marks to Edexcel via Edexcel online, and have sent your sample (visible on Edexcel online from mid-April) to the moderator. Your moderator’s name and address will be available on Edexcel online from mid-April.

If you have already submitted a mark but it needs to be amended (for example, because of an administrative error), please email EMgeography@pearson.com with details of the amended point score.

How do I identify the sample of work that needs to be sent to the moderator?

You can check Edexcel online (from mid-April) to identify which work needs to be sent for moderation - there will be a tick next to the candidates' names. Here's how:

  1. Go to Edexcel online and enter your centre number.
  2. Choose GCSE in the drop-down menu on the left.
  3. Choose 'Candidates' - 'Search by course'.
  4. Select the session from the central drop down menu 'June 2014'.
  5. You should see a box pop up with all the units entered with Edxecel for entire school.
  6. Click on the link 'Papers' for the unit you are interested in (for example, 5GA04 or 5GB04).
  7. Click on the link that says 'Coursework Marks' (there is also a link that says 'Moderator details' - this is where you find out who to send the sample of candidates work to).
  8. You will see a list of your candidates and should enter their marks here.
  9. You will also see a column entitled 'Included in Sample'. If there is a tick in this column then you will need to send us this candidate's work.

You also need to send the work of the highest- and lowest-scoring candidates if they are not part of the requested sample.

Who is my moderator?

You can also check your moderator's name and address (from mid-April) on Edexcel online following the steps above.

Where is the individual candidate controlled assessment record/mark/cover sheet?

You’ll need to download, print and complete a controlled assessment record sheet of these for each candidate, and ensure it's signed by both teacher and candidate.

Removal of OPTEMS

In order to help increase security, and also allow more time for centres to process and submit their centre assessed marks, from Summer 2017 we will only be allowing centres to submit those marks online; via Edexcel Online or Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

This will be in keeping with other Awarding Organisations, and will offer the following advantages:

  • you will be able to submit marks right up to the deadline
  • a reduction in the amount of paper being sent through the system, and stored in centres
  • it will eliminate the risk of OPTEMS being lost or damaged in the post
  • Edexcel Online will display the latest allocated moderator details, capturing any late changes

If your teaching staff usually complete their own OPTEMS forms, please see the guide below on how you can give senior teachers or Heads of Department the relevant access to Edexcel Online to complete their own electronic submissions.

The only exception to this change will be for Entry Level Certificate (Academic) which will continue to have marks submitted via OPTEMS, as these qualifications are not on Edexcel Online.
