Examiners were asked to keep some data on Section B of the exam in June so that we would have a sense of which topics were covered and what examples tended to be used.
I have analysed the data from a sample of 15 examiners, who marked a total of 165 centres (around one third of the total cohort), totalling 3034 candidates. In 24 cases, centres seemed to have covered more than one topic- which is quite a small number.This table gives a snapshot of the numbers involved. At INSET, we will look at some of the examples that were commonly used and what examiners identified as working well and what went less well. A summary overview is available in the main examiners' report.
