  • As per the recently despatched Circular No.13 centres are now required to provide the times on which practical assessments to be submitted in May 2014 are to be carried out. Please contact WJEC urgently if this information has not been received.

Principal Examiners’ Report

The Principal Examiners' report, providing feedback on the summer 2013 series of examinations, is now available. Centres are advised to read the report carefully as it provides helpful observations and commentary on the work produced for this series and can assist teachers in preparing their students for the next series of examinations.

WJEC provides, and will continue to provide, GCE Physics qualifications which meet the needs of teachers and the requirements of regulators in both England and Wales.
