JCQ Information for Candidates
We are required to provide you with access to information for examinations and assessments.
The school provides you with this information on behalf of the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).
You must follow these rules for all examinations and assessments. Anyone who breaks the rules has to be reported to the relevant Examination Boards and it is up to them to decide how to deal with the matter, for example they may decide to withdraw all of your examinations.
Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) publishes a number of key documents which candidates should familiarise themselves with prior to sitting any external examination or assessment.
Please visit JCQ’s website for further information.
