(PDF), Last Updated: 10 December 2015

In Health and Social Care, we assess 8 of the 12 units through coursework. The amount of coursework students must complete depends on the award they are entered for. Check the specification section for more details.

The coursework assignments involve a number of activities including:

  • investigative reports;
  • case studies;
  • a health education campaign; and
  • the design of an information pack.

Each coursework unit is worth 16.66 percent of a full GCE. Teachers mark the coursework items and we moderate them. Centres must submit coursework for moderation in January or May.

Teachers must guide and advise students in the production of their coursework. While some work, particularly in the early planning stages, may take part in groups, the input of the individual student must be clearly identified and the judgements and conclusions reached be his/her own.

For more information on coursework, see the full specification.
