GCSE Engineering

Led by: Mrs E Millican

Exam Board:

AQA

What will I be studying?

The core content for the Engineering GC SE includes:

using engineering materials and manufacturing processes, looking at systems used in engineering, testing and investigating how engineered products work, understanding the impact of modern technologies such as 3D printers and electronics, and using engineering skills to manufacture and make products.

A mathematical understanding will be required for this GCSE and questions on some maths problems will be asked in the exam.

40% of the marks are awarded through the controlled assessment which is started in June of Year 10 and takes most of Year 11 to complete and 60% is a written exam which is two hours long and has multiple choice and some short answer questions. Students will also be given a problem to solve using notes and sketches to produce a solution.

What can I do after wards?

With a GCSE in Engineering, students can show that they have the practical skills and technical understanding to progress further in subjects such as Engineering, Electronics, Product Design and apprenticeships in plumbing, electrics and motor vehicle maintenance. They can also go into areas such as computer and game console repair and generally any job requiring a practically skilled individual.
