Teacher Guidance Controlled Assessment
(PDF), Last Updated: 19 August 2011

In GCSE Business Studies, students must complete one controlled assessment task. We provide a range of tasks to choose from in September each year.

The controlled assessment task is worth 25 percent of the final award. It may test students on any aspect of the specification’s content.

Students have a time limit of 12 hours to carry out research for their chosen task. They then have a time limit of 3 hours to write a report. They must write this report within 4 weeks of completing their research. They must complete all aspects of the task independently.

Teachers mark the tasks using the criteria that we provide, and we moderate them.

For more information, see the specification.
