Finding your way around Ofqual's new web site

A quick guide on where to find our content on GOV.UK and how to access our archived content.


In moving our website to GOV.UK you’ll find that the content you need isn’t in the same place as it used to be.

GOV.UK is designed to make it easy to find content by searching for it. You can either use the search at the top of any page on GOV.UK or you can search straight from Google or any other search engine.

While you’re getting used to the way GOV.UK works this article should help you find your way around.

Content on GOV.UK

We have pages if you need to report malpractice or wrongdoing, or if you want to complain about Ofqual or the organisations we regulate.

For reform of GCSEs, A and AS levels, the best starting page is this policy overview by the Department for Education. We will be collecting our publications on GCSE reform and AS and A level reform onto separate pages that will be linked to from the detail tab on the policy overview. We have also created a timeline of reforms grouped by current school year group.

You can apply to have your qualifications regulated by us, or apply to become one of our external experts.

Research papers and statistics now have their own listings.

We also have a page listing any recent notices or decisions about actions we have taken against organisations we regulate (sometimes called regulatory actions).
