Do I need to mark and submit Computer Science work to OCR?
No - there is no need to submit any work to OCR for the Summer 2020 series.
Grades sent to OCR should take their expected performance in the A level NEA into account. For GCSE, their success in their Programming Project may help support evidence for Component 02 success.
Will the new GCSE Computer Science specification (J277) be delayed?
No. There are no plans to delay the release of J277, September 2020 is when teachers can first teach it.
We have a range of supportive documentation to help planning and delivery. Please see subject web page. Due to minimal change, there should be minimal planning updates required for the new specification.
