Ofqual updates - April 2019

April 2019

Exams officers 

Ofqual has created a film about the role of the exams officer. The film aims to raise awareness of the important work Exams Officers do among other school staff and parents. To accompany the video, Ofqual has also written to assistant heads and exams officers and also published a blog.

Current consultation 

Ofqual is currently consulting on proposed changes to the way awarding organisations manage and oversee centre assessments. These changes are intended to ensure that appropriate controls are in place so that standards are consistent, whenever and wherever an assessment is taken. This consultation is open until 20 May 2019.

Exam pressure and test anxiety 

Ofqual has recently issued Coping With Exam Pressure - A Guide for Students as well as a series of blogs on test anxiety. Go to the Blog page to see these and other recent topical blogs on marking and examiner recruitment.
