Another superb blog post from Colleen Young with all the useful information and links that we all need at this time of the year (see below this post).  After reading it and checking the links, I created this document for anyone who needs a RAG sheet or checklist of all the topics required for the new GCSE exam – I based it on extracts from the “Exemplification of the New Sample Assessment Materials” that C0lleen mentions and links to in her post.
