Ofqual statement on alleged exam leaks

Ofqual responds to alleged malpractice in Edexcel (Pearson) exams.

We are continuing to work with Pearson as it investigates and responds to the allegations of exam malpractice or wrongdoing involving its qualifications. We recognise the concerns of students and parents, and are absolutely committed to maintaining public confidence in these qualifications.

Students should continue to prepare for their forthcoming exams as normal, and we will work with Pearson so that students get the result their performance deserves as papers are marked and awarded this summer. We would like to thank all those that have contacted us, and continue to urge anyone who may have relevant information to contact Pearson or us in confidence.
