Government & Politics GCE A/AS
The Principal Examiners' report, providing feedback on the summer 2013 series of examinations, is now available. Centres are advised to read the report carefully as it provides helpful observations and commentary on the work produced for this series and can assist teachers in preparing their students for the next series of examinations.
WJEC offers a GCE course in Government and Politics. This new specification has been developed in response to teachers and higher education providers' request for a specification that gives appropriate weight to the development of devolution in Wales.
The WJEC specification aims to develop candidates' knowledge and understanding of the political system in both Wales and the UK as a whole. One unit at AS, GP2 - Governing Modern Wales, has been developed specifically to address the needs of centres in Wales to study the changing political position of Wales within the UK since devolution in 1997.
WJEC provides, and will continue to provide, GCE Government & Politics qualifications which meet the needs of teachers and the requirements of regulators in both England and Wales.
