News

  • The Summer 2016 Principal Examiners' Reports for GCSE English / English Language (Out of Wales), providing feedback on the Summer 2016 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 either of the two re-sit opportunities.
  • There will be two re-sit opportunities for the legacy specification in November 2016 and June 2017. Candidates are allowed to carry forward previous controlled assessment marks.
  • Where new written controlled assessment is to be entered, the tasks must be selected from the November June 2016/June 2017 booklet which is stored on the secure website.
  • Further information on re-sit rules can be found at the following links: WJEC and Ofqual.
