From this page you can access step-by-step support including our information manuals, Edexcel Online and ResultsPlus services. You’ll also find technical support, training, updates, FAQs and details of your dedicated account specialist.

Information manual

Each year we produce an information manual that's sent to all centres around the start of the academic year as a booklet. We also produce a different version of the information manual for international centres. Both manuals are available on the information manual page.

Information manual

The information manual contains details of our administrative procedures and essential information such as contacts and key dates, and is intended as a reference tool to assist exams officers and other administrators.

Interactive exams officers timeline

Along with the information manual, we send out an exams officer timeline which includes all our key dates for our academic and vocational. This is now been available in an interactive and user friendly version for you. Once downloaded and saved on your computer, you can tick off the dates as you go along to show you a summary of your activities throughout the academic year.

Along with the dates, there are also some useful links and videos relevant to the different dates to support you throughout your role.
