The UCL IOE Chinese Networks team has done a comparison of the new GCSE specifications from AQA and Edexcel. We have only had access to what are ‘draft’ specifications so far, so details may change slightly. We shall revise this document once the ‘final’ specifications are published.
We hope the document will be of some help to schools when they are reviewing the specifications. Please let Nicola (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if there are any errors or inconsistencies and we shall update immediately.
AQA are confirmed exhibitors at our 2017 Chinese Teaching Conference and we expect that Edexcel will also be in attendance. This will give teachers an opportunity to discuss with both exam boards about the new specifications.
