Assessment/Reports & Examinations



At Merit, students will sit their GCSEs in Years 10 and 11 in exactly the same way as they would in their mainstream school.


Subjects taught to GCSE include:

  • English Language and Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • History
  • Geography
  • RE (Philosophy and Ethics)
  • Art
  • Performing Arts
  • ICT

Students sit mock examinations in December. Some students will sit exams in college having successfully reintegrated for a subject of their choice. We are a registered centre for the AQA, Edexel, OCR, BCS and WJEC examination boards. All formal examination procedures are applied with rigour, as would be expected by mainstream schools.
