Errors in Question Papers
If you are concerned about some of the news you’ve heard about errors in question papers, please don’t worry. Last year a very tiny proportion of question papers was affected; the vast majority are completely error-free.
What to do if you find a mistake
If you do discover something in one of your question papers which you think is a mistake in the paper, please tell the invigilator as soon as you spot it – as quietly as possible, in order not to disturb other exam candidates.
If you think, after the exam, that there was an error in your question paper, please tell your subject teacher or the exam officer at your school or college as soon as possible. They will then let the relevant awarding organisation know.
What WJEC will do
If we’ve confirmed an error in a question paper, we will put a statement on our website as soon as possible, and also alert followers of our Twitter and Facebook sites. This will explain exactly what the mistake is, and what we are planning to do about it. Our main concern is always to ensure that all our candidates are treated fairly, and we can make sure that this happens in a number of ways, depending on the potential impact an error could have.
