School curriculum

The national curriculum, early years, key stages 1 to 5, GCSEs and AS and A levels, tests, exams and assessments.


  1. The national curriculum

    The English national curriculum means children in different schools (at primary and secondary level) study the same subjects to similar standards - it's split into key stages with tests

  2. Early years foundation stage

    The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5

  3. Get a replacement exam certificate

    Request a replacement exam certificate or a certified statement of results if you've lost your original - check the list of old exam boards if your board no longer exists

  4. What qualification levels mean

    Find the difficulty level of a qualification and compare qualifications across different countries.

  5. Find a regulated qualification

    Check if a qualification is regulated and what level it is on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF)
