WJEC Geology e-mail bulletin.
WJEC provides, and will continue to provide, GCSE Geology qualifications which meet the needs of teachers and the requirements of regulators in both England and Wales.
The WJEC GCSE Geology specification covers the following content: Rock Exposures, Landscape-formation processes, Understanding the Earth, Major geological events, Earth events, and Professional Geoscientists. This qualification is popular with centres for a number of reasons: the clarity of the Specification, the quality of CPD, teacher support and guidance, the reliability of examining, and friendly approach of WJEC staff.
Centres intending to use the Option 1 task will require specimens and should contact Jonathan Owen or Sarah Price to arrange for them to be despatched. You are reminded that all other materials will be downloaded from the Secure Website any time after 21st September 2012.
