Terminal Rule in GCSE 2009
  • QCA has a Terminal Rule for unitised
    qualifications. Unitised qualifications offer
    individual unit assessment.
  • Candidates are able to resit each unit once.
  • The rule states that
  • at least 40 of the assessment must be taken in
    the final exam session
  • the final exam session is the session in which
    candidates are claiming their award.
  • the results from these terminal attempts must be
    used for the calculation of the final grade.
