Ofqual has produced resources to support you in preparing your child for their exams and assessments. This includes the 2023 Student Guide and the recently published 2023 School and College Guide

Coursework Overview Timeline


The coursework overview document provides an important insight into the focus of any given piece, its percentage contribution to a final GCSE grade and deadlines.


Parents and carers need to be aware that all deadlines are set by the exam boards and are therefore non-negotiable.


Crucially parents and carers need to be aware of points in the year where more than one piece of coursework task may be taking place and take steps at home to help their child manage their personal studies time effectively.


Information for Candidates


In this section you will find the JCQ exam rules and regulations to help ensure that your child knows how to conduct themselves in an examination. It is imperative that your child is familiar with these rules and understands the full ramifications should they be broken. 



Below is a link to the full list of JCQ guidance documents for students.
