The Examination Process

We develop qualification specifications and sample assessment materials to meet requirements specified by government departments in EnglandWales and Northern Ireland. Qualifications are approved, accredited or designated by the relevant regulators, Ofqual (England), Qualifications Wales (Wales) and CCEA(Northern Ireland). Our WJEC and Eduqas qualifications are regulated by Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and CCEA.

Our role in the examination system

Examinations and assessments

We must provide valid assessments which are reliably marked/ moderated to ensure standards from one exam series to the next.

We offer a range of post-results services to centres and private candidates, aligned to regulatory requirements. We also provide examination data to schools and colleges entering learners for our qualifications. In addition, we provide support to teachers via our free digital resources, Online Examination Review, and examiner feedback reports.
