Detail

The yellow label service is a traceable exam scripts dispatch service provided by Parcelforce Worldwide. Exam centres can use the service to send unmarked materials to examiners. It covers the following materials for externally assessed general qualifications, functional skills and other eligible accredited qualifications:

  • exam scripts
  • coursework
  • controlled assessments

This service offers a high level of security for pre-arranged collections from your centre. It includes contingency measures in case of extreme adverse weather or a major event.

The service cannot be used to send internally marked coursework to moderators.
