This page contains important information about learning, coursework and assessment. The documents below are useful guidelines to show what is expected for Year 10 and Year 11 students regarding:
- time management
- recognising pressure points throughout the year
- meeting deadlines.
Parents are able to access the 14-16 Communications Website (http://1416digitallearning.co.uk) where there is information for parents and students about the 14-16 Digital Learning Project.
As you will be aware GCSE syllabuses require students to submit coursework, much of which is completed at home. In view of this, parents and students should be aware of the exam board's regulation on plagiarism.
Plagiarism is to take the work or an idea of someone else
and pass it off as one's own
The WJEC understands plagiarism to be the presentation by a candidate of others' work as if it were his or her own (i.e. without clearly identifying and specifying a source), whether it be a sentence, a paragraph or a complete assignment. The term can also be used to describe the amendment of source material by changing certain words, whilst retaining the structure of the original. The source may be (but is not limited to) the internet, the printed word, or a classmate. It is an example of examination malpractice.
Each candidate is required to sign the declaration on the cover sheet, confirming that the work in the folder is their own. Therefore, any folder where plagiarism is suspected will be referred to the Malpractice Committee and the centre informed. If the case is provded, the mark for the whole folder (not just the piece in question) may be discounted, and further penalities considered.
If you have any further queries regarding the above, please contact the relevant department in school.
