Here you will find information relating to the submission of candidate entries by examination centres, and links to key documents which give more detailed procedural instructions
Preliminary Entries for GCE, GCSE and Entry Level examinations should be submitted online via WJEC’s secure website. The online system has been streamlined in order to make the process simpler for exam officers and ensure that the data submitted is as accurate as possible.
It is very important for all centres to submit preliminary entries. If you do not, you will not receive despatches of early examination materials, for example, instructions for practical examinations, when you require them, nor will you receive despatches of examination stationery.
Final Candidate Entries for all WJEC examinations can be submitted by any one of these two methods:
- Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
- Through WJEC’s secure website
Full details of all these procedures can be found in the Entries Procedures booklet which WJEC produces annually. This booklet can be downloaded below.
The Entries Procedures booklet also contains full listings of entry codes and a wide range of other useful information. Exam Officers are strongly advised to familiarise themselves with the details contained in this document.
Late Entries are those entries submitted after the stipulated closing dates. Late entries are much more demanding of awarding body resources and in most cases, additional fees are charged. Full details can be found in the examination fees document below.
Changes to discount codes
The Department for Education (DfE) has made changes to the discount classification codes for qualifications that will count in the 2014 Key Stage 4 Performance tables in England. The revised codes and associated guidance are published on the RAISEonline website.
Summary of key changes
Some qualifications that previously had different discount codes now have the same code which means that only one of them will count in the performance measures. These subjects are grouped together in the Discount Codes 2014 document to illustrate the changes.
The WJEC subjects affected are:
• Applied Business Studies and Business Studies subjects
• Applied Science and Additional Applied Science subjects
• Art and Design subjects
• Catering and Hospitality subjects
• Drama and Performing Arts subjects
• Film Studies, Media Studies and Creative and Media subjects
• Leisure and Tourism and Travel and Tourism subjects
• Welsh Language subjects
