A heritage you can trust

The background to Pearson becoming the UK’s largest awarding organisation began in 1836, when a royal charter gave the University of London its first powers to conduct exams and confer degrees on its students. With over 150 years of international education experience, Pearson’s Edexcel qualifications have firm academic foundations, built on the traditions and rigour associated with Britain’s educational system. 

The most reliable awarding organisation

Pearson’s marking processes have been shown to produce exceptionally reliable results – with the fewest grade changes on re-marketing of the leading UK awarding organisations over the past 2 years – demonstrating that at every stage, Pearson qualifications – which include Edexcel academic qualifications – maintain the highest standards.
