Exam Officers

This part of the website is for exam officers in schools, colleges and other institutions which enter candidates for WJEC examinations.

January Examinations

January examinations take place between 9 – 19 January, and the deadline for submission of internal assessment marks is 15 January.

Information regarding the examinations is available in the January Examinations Requirements booklet, with additional information regarding resit rules and carry forward available in this document.

Reviews of marking – centre assessed marks

For the June 2018 series onwards, regulators now require all learners to have the ability to request results of centre-marked assessments and the ability to request a review of the centre's marking prior to marks being submitted to the awarding organisation.

JCQ regulations have been updated accordingly, and a notice regarding reviews of marking has been issued.

WJEC has produced a Frequently Asked Questions document to assist centres in implementing this new requirement within centres.

Malpractice and Whistleblowing

If you believe that you have witnessed malpractice in examinations or assessments, please review the information on our malpractice page and contact us immediately.

WJEC follows the JCQ processes on Malpractice as documented in the JCQ "Suspected Malpractice in Examinations and Assessments" guide.

Our Malpractice - "A Guide for Centres" document outlines WJEC processes and provides advice and guidance.
