 Controlled Assessments, Coursework and Exam Word Processing Accounts


Dear All

Further to JCQ requirements I have attached 2015/16 instructions for
controlled assessments, coursework and the people present in exam

These instructions must be forwarded electronically to each subject
leader/teacher within the centre.

These document provide subject teachers, senior leaders and heads of
centre with a single, definitive source of generic guidance and
instructions for legacy GCSE/GCE qualifications.

Please note for all formal external assessments

· Support and encouragement may be offered at any point up until the
time that candidates enter the examination room.

From that moment onwards they are under examination conditions and the
strict protocols must be adhered to.

· Candidates must be instructed to write their name exactly as it
appears on the attendance register (full legal forename and surname).

When collecting scripts invigilators must check that the names on the
scripts match exactly the details on the attendance register.

Can I ask on behalf of IT that requests for Exam WP accounts are
submitted at least 24 hours before controlled assessments are

Please include details specific to your qualification – number of
accounts needed, programmes and access restrictions etc.

Your qualification specification guidelines will give instructions of
level of control needed.

Eg. a maximum of six hours to write up under High level of control

control phase

not allowed during the High level of control phase

in relation to ICT
