The deadline for the submission of completed controlled assessment samples for moderation is Friday 24th March 2017.
As in 2016, centres will be required to submit their controlled assessment marks online via the WJEC Secure Website from 10th March. Once all marks have been entered and submitted, the online system will confirm the details of those candidates whose work will need to be sent in the sample. As in 2016, the moderator address details will only be available via the online system, and can be seen once marks have been submitted and the sample has been confirmed.
The relevant covering mark sheet and guidance notes (HUM2) is available on the Related Documents page. N.B. There is no longer a need to complete a HUM1 form.
