Find qualifications and resources

WJEC offers about 40 GCE subjects for Wales and England, including single and double award Applied GCEs. The structure is largely built around 4 units, although some (e.g. Sciences, Welsh, Music) are still 6 unit specifications.

Specifications, assessment materials and interactive online Teachers' Guides can be found on relevant subject pages. Personal advice from subject specialists and administrative colleagues is also available.

GCE in Wales

Details of GCE qualifications in Wales, including the wider structure of AS and A levels, are expected from the Welsh Government during the 2013 summer term.

GCE in England

Ofqual has confirmed that new GCEs will be developed by awarding organisations for teaching in September 2015: English (Language, Literature plus Language & Literature); Mathematics; Biology; Chemistry; Physics; History; Geography; Art & Design; Business Studies; Computing; Economics; Psychology and Sociology.

WJEC is working closely with teachers, examiners and colleagues in higher education to prepare for the changes, and we have contributed fully to discussions and consultations held by Ofqual and the DfE.
