14 Business subjects (continued) Enterprise Enterprise, Syllabus 0454 (continued) Changes to Component 2 In response to feedback from Centres and examiners, we have made some changes to streamline the requirements of the Coursework component (Component 2). Task 1 A formal written report is now the only requirement. We provide details in the syllabus of what the report should cover. Task 2 Candidates no longer have to submit a risk assessment as part of their planning. The witness statement of the candidate s financial presentation must be submitted in writing. We will not accept video recordings as evidence, owing to practical difficulties in providing and accessing video recordings. We have included a requirement in the planning marketing communications task for candidates to present their proposed marketing communications methods to a teacher or business person. A written witness statement must also be provided. Task 3 We have clarified the structure of the assessment guidelines. Negotiation with others is now a separate point in the guidelines. This reflects the fact that candidates must do both the negotiation and the action plan monitoring tasks. Task 4 The requirements have been streamlined to make it explicit that the candidate must submit a formal report to assess their communication skills. We have emphasised that the option to evaluate internal communications is only available to candidates who have worked as part of a group. There are no changes to the externally assessed components, the specimen papers or the mark schemes for this syllabus. PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THE RELEVANT PAGES TO ALL TEACHING STAFF CONCERNED 14

36 Global Perspectives Global Perspectives Global Perspectives, Syllabus 0457 Cambridge International AS Level Global Perspectives, Syllabus 8987 From June 2012 Following the review of the pilot syllabus incorporating valuable feedback from schools, teachers, examiners and moderators, we have published a revised syllabus for first examination in June and November This replaces the previously published syllabus for these dates. We have made a number of changes to clarify the language and the assessment procedure. The aims of the syllabus remain the same: learners study a range of global issues from a variety of perspectives personal, local/national and global. The assessment continues to be based on skills rather than content, with learners developing and applying a range of skills. The syllabus aims and assessment objectives have been reviewed and clarified. The list of topics has been increased and some have been broadened. Two components have new names: 'Individual Research' (instead of Portfolio) and 'Group Project' (instead of Project). For the Individual Research component, two reports are submitted. The weighting of each component has been revised. The new topics have exemplar questions that teachers may wish to use as an initial focus for investigation. Revised mark schemes are in the syllabus, together with guidance on the role of the teacher. A revised specimen paper is available on our website: From June 2012 Following the successful pilot of both Global Perspectives and Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Independent Research, we have developed a new qualification: Cambridge International AS Level Global Perspectives.
