Detail

These documents should be read together. They set out rules for principal learning and project qualifications:

  • the agreed principles and practices for the assessment and quality assurance of those qualifications
  • the roles and responsibilities of awarding organisations and schools/colleges
  • the requirements for a high-quality examinations process.

August 2016 update

As of 25 August 2016, this document no longer applies to GCSEs, AS and A levels.

This is because it has been replaced by our new rules on reviews and appeals for GCSEs (graded A* to G), and for legacy AS and A levels.
