January A Level examinations
8 January 2013
Before Christmas Ofqual confirmed that, after 2013, January A level exams will no longer be available, regardless of when students started their course. Further details are available here: http://www.ofqual.gov.uk/news/ofqual-announces-changes-to-a-levels/. There will therefore be no January AS or A2 examinations in 2014 or in subsequent years. Candidates wishing to sit or re-sit units will need to use the June assessment opportunity.
The Welsh Government is consulting teachers and other interested parties on the future of January assessment. WJEC will inform teachers as soon as a decision has been made. In the meantime you may wish to take part in the consultation here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GSYJFNY. The closing date for taking part is 14 January.
