Detail of outcome
We have decided to implement the proposals on which we consulted, subject to a change to the way we refer in the conditions to private candidates. We have also made some minor changes to the proposed wording of our Conditions and guidance in a number of places in light of responses to our consultation.
Detail of feedback received
We received 11 responses to the consultation. Of these, 8 were complete online responses and 3 were responses submitted by email. We are grateful to everyone who participated.
We are consulting on changes to our rules about how exam boards should conduct reviews of marking, moderation and appeals.
The changes we propose respond to issues we have seen in the first two years of operation of these rules, aim to make our rules easier to follow and bring them in line with a version of the rules which we have already introduced for Technical Qualifications.
Documents tracking these changes to our Qualification Level Conditions and Requirements and Guidance for GCSEs, GCEs and Project Qualifications are available below, along with ‘clean’ versions of these documents.
