Isaacs advises how much help a teacher can give to a pupil under assessment conditions.

Science teachers who have been teaching the new science syllabus for the past couple of years give their views on the new format, whilst Headteachers voice their worries about the upheaval surrounding the introduction of new GCSEs in Autumn 2009.

Finally there is a look at how the new modular approach to many GCSEs will work, including how often modules can be sat and what proportion can be taken before the end of the course.
