As we reach the end of another school year, I wanted to take a moment to say a heartfelt "well done" for all your hard work and dedication. This year has been filled with challenges and triumphs, and through it all, your commitment to providing the best education for your students has shone brightly. Thank you for your tireless efforts, your creativity, and your passion for teaching.

This month, my update is full of resources to help you with planning for the next school year, including a variety of materials to support your curriculum development, lesson planning, and assessment strategies. These resources are meant to make your preparation process smoother and more effective, setting you up for success in the upcoming year. I will also be on hand if you need any support over the summer break and for results days.

As you prepare for next school year, I also want to remind you of the importance of taking a well-deserved rest this summer break. You have earned this time to relax, recharge, and spend quality moments with your loved ones. Thank you once more for everything you do and have a wonderful break!

Art and Design Network Events 2024-2025

We have now published dates for our 2024-2025 Art and Design Network Events. These free online events are designed to look at various aspects of teaching and learning in Art and Design across key stages and are an opportunity to discuss ideas with subject experts and fellow teachers. 

View all training and events on Pearson Professional Development Academy 

Our first Art and Design network of the new academic year is an updated version of the Curriculum Planning event from September 2023.

Our subject advisor Jaclyn Wiid will introduce a range of evidence-based curriculum planning and delivery approaches in Art and Design that are helpful for the start of the school year.

The session will look at what makes a successful Art and Design curriculum for GCSE, International GCSE and A Level and explore new resources on the Pearson website to support teachers in their planning and delivery.

This event would be particularly well suited to new teachers or more experienced teachers delivering the Pearson Edexcel specification for the first time.

In this live network event, a member of our senior examining team will discuss the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Pearson Edexcel Art and Design qualifications.

The session will explore both acceptable and inappropriate uses of AI in student portfolios, providing further explanation and visual evidence to compliment the written guidance released by Pearson earlier this year.

In this online network, run by our credible specialist for Textile Design, teachers will explore a range of practical teaching and learning strategies for fostering creativity and originality in the endorsed title of Textile Design.

The session is open to all but will be particularly well suited to teachers new to delivering Textile Design through the Art and Design specification.

Accessing Results

pictogram-rgb-blue-web-security

{{ gatDoctitle }}

{{invalidUserName}}
{{invalidUserMail}}
{{errorMessage}}

To access our results services and secure materials, and you will need an Edexcel Online login (EOL) to access this. EOL accounts are managed by the centre Exams Officer / EOL Administrator. If, as a teacher, you need an EOL login please talk to your Exams Officer who will be able to get you set up. 

Please note that as an additional step for securing customer and learner data we have now introduced our new app-based multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all users of Edexcel Online, replacing the email-based MFA. The app is now mandatory to access Edexcel Online via the Pearson Portal. If you've not done so already, you'll need to download the Pearson authenticator app to a smart device (such as a smart phone) to continue to access Edexcel online via the Pearson Portal.

You can access the following results and reports on Edexcel Online.

Report name Used for: Contains:
Broadsheet Checking student performance at a glance.  All unit level scores and overall subject grades 
Component Mark List Checking student performance against grade boundaries (also useful for teachers and
heads of departments).
Listed by component, shows: subject marks,
UMS, maximum raw and weighted marks. 
Contributing
Units Results
Checking how raw unit marks contributed to each UMS (also useful for teachers and heads of departments).   Grades, component unit scores, total UMS
and grade boundaries. 
CSPRs Providing results information to students. It details overall grades and contributing units.  Shows grades for all subjects and scores for
each unit.  

ResultsPlus is our online results analysis tool for teachers. Included as part of your qualification fees, ResultsPlus gives you a detailed breakdown of your students’ performance in Pearson Edexcel exams and BTEC external assessments.

Your moderator writes a report to explain where it was necessary to adjust your centre’s marks. Where possible, your moderator advises you on how you could make improvements for future series.

You can find these on Edexcel Online. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to Edexcel Online.

These reports are for qualifications that are internally assessed and externally moderated.

Qualifications that are externally assessed receive a detailed breakdown of marks on ResultsPlus instead.

The Principal Moderator also compiles a report on how candidates performed in this year’s examinations. It provides general feedback and highlights good approaches that can be taken forward to future examination series.

You can find these reports on ResultsPlus. Please speak to your examinations officer if you don't have access to ResultsPlus.

These reports are for qualifications that are internally assessed and externally moderated.

Qualifications that are externally assessed receive an Examiner Report instead.

The 'Coursework moderation and mark adjustments' guide explains how we calculate final coursework marks.

Examiner reports are made available after results days and you will be able to view Examiner Reports through our Pearson Qualifications website.

You will need to navigate to the course materials page of the required qualification. 

Past question papers and mark schemes are offered free of charge on our website with ‚Äėrestricted access‚Äô to teachers at Edexcel exam centres for 12 months after an exams series and then ‚Äėopen access‚Äô to all users thereafter.

Teachers and exams officers at Pearson Edexcel centres require an Edexcel Online login to access assessment materials during the 12-month restricted access period. Access to Edexcel Online is managed by exams officers in each Pearson Edexcel centre.

Question papers and mark schemes are released with restricted access as follows for the summer series:

  • Question Paper: 7-8 weeks before results day
  • Mark Scheme: 4-5 weeks before results day

Past question papers, mark schemes and examiner reports are normally kept under restricted access to teachers with Edexcel Online access for 12 months. This is to allow centres to use these materials as unfamiliar mock assessments or practice resources with their students. 

You can access summer 2024 grade boundaries on our website from results day. 

In addition to the official grade boundaries that are produced at subject level, we will also be providing notional grade boundaries at component level. These can help you mark and assess future mocks.

Access to Scripts (ATSPE and ATSO)

26 September 2024

Access to Scripts (ATSC) 13 December 2024

The document below provides full details on which services are available for each of our Edexcel components/units.

A check of all clerical procedures which lead to us issuing a result. This includes making sure:

  • all parts of the exam paper have been markedmarks have been recorded/added up correctly
  • special consideration has been applied (where appropriate)
  • the grade boundaries have been applied accurately

You might consider this service if the results for one candidate are unexpected compared to the rest of the cohort.

Candidates’ marks or grades can go up, down or stay the same.

The date for completion is within 10 calendar days of receiving the request.

A check that our examiners have marked externally assessed components correctly.  This includes:

  • a clerical check (Service 1)
  • a review of marking of units/components by a senior examiner

You can ask us to review the marking of exam papers for individual candidates and the results for each candidate will be reported separately. This service isn't available for internally assessed/externally moderated coursework components.

Candidates’ marks or grades can go up, down or stay the same.

The date for completion is within 20 calendar days of receiving the request

This service is the same as Service 2 review of marking but is processed faster.

Candidates’ marks or grades can go up, down or stay the same.

It is generally used when a candidate’s place in further/higher education depends on the outcome.

The date for completion is within 15 calendar days of receiving the request.

Where we've adjusted centre marks during moderation, this service checks that our moderator has made an accurate judgement on the centre’s ability to mark the work to the national standard.

This includes:

  • a review of the original moderation by a senior moderator
  • feedback with a similar level of detail to the original moderator report

This service can't be requested if we agreed centre marks during moderation.

A review of moderation (Service 3) replicates the original moderation process and therefore the same sample will need to be available for review. Any mark changes may impact all candidates completing this component at the centre in the current exam session.

Candidates’ uniform mark scores (UMS) can up, down or stay the same but grades will not be lowered for the current exam session.

This means that if a candidate’s mark is lowered their grade won’t change as a result of a review of moderation (Service 3) in this exam session. However their new mark will be used to calculate any future overall grades that require this component e.g. if a candidate resits the qualification.

The date for completion is within 35 calendar days of the moderator receiving the original sample of work. 

Pearson is the only awarding organisation to provide access to your students’ marked exam papers included as part of your qualification fees.

You can use the Access to Scripts service to help decide if you wish to request a review of marking. Please take note of the deadlines for requesting a review of marking as requests submitted after the deadlines will not be accepted.

Available for all GCSE, International GCSE, AS, A level and BTEC qualifications from results day, allowing teachers to access their candidates’ exam papers for all scripts.

  • The online portal allows you to view your candidates‚Äô marked scripts online or download as a PDF.
  • It is a self-service portal via Edexcel Online giving you instant access to scripts.
  • You will be able to evaluate how your candidates performed on particular questions and how that is reflected in their final grade.
  • It will help you to identify skills gaps so you can tailor future teaching plans.

If scripts have been marked 'traditionally' (i.e. not online), you will need to request them, free of charge, by the published deadline, via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.

Please note that written permission must be gained from candidates before scripts can be accessed.

This service allows you to request a copy of an exam paper so you can make a decision about whether to apply for a review of marking (Service 2). It includes a copy of the marked exam paper, sent either electronically as a PDF or as a printed hard copy.

This service is not suitable for candidates with university places at risk. If the candidate requires an urgent review of marking, centres should progress straight to a priority review of marking (Service P2). You will not be able to request a Service P2 if you request this service.

This service allows you to request a copy of a marked exam paper to support teaching or learning. If the exam paper was marked electronically, it will be returned as an electronic PDF copy. All other exam papers will be returned in the post.

Once an exam paper has been returned it's not possible to request for a review of marking (Service 2/Service 2P).

This service allows you to request a copy of an exam paper once it has been reviewed as part of a Review of Marking or Moderation (ROMM) service. It includes a copy of the marked exam paper, sent either electronically as a PDF or as a printed hard copy.

This service should be requested at the same time as the Review of Marking request.

A centre that is dissatisfied with the outcome of a review of marking or moderation (RoMM), special consideration or access arrangement request, or malpractice determination may wish to appeal against the decision.

We will allow the head of centre (or designated member of the centre’s senior management team or examinations manager):

  • 30 calendar days from the receipt of the outcome to lodge an appeal against a RoMM decision
  • 14 calendar days from the receipt of the outcome to lodge an appeal against a malpractice decision
  • 14 calendar days from the receipt of the original decision to lodge an appeal against a special consideration or access arrangement decision.

All appeals must be submitted by the entering centre. We cannot accept appeals directly from candidates, their parents or other third parties acting on their behalf. The only exception to this is if private candidates are appealing directly without the support of the entering centre. Any appeals submitted directly to us by candidates (other than private candidates), parents or other third parties will be invalid and will not be accepted for processing. Candidates wishing to appeal should contact their centre.

Releasing Learner Work

JCQ guidelines require that 'live' work is kept secure until results day and review of marking and moderation (ROMM) dates have taken place, as well as any subsequent appeals if applicable.

This applies to both Component 1 and 2 of GCSE, International GCSE, and A Level Art and Design.

If work is taken out of secure conditions and a centre subsequently wishes to apply for a review of marking and moderation after results day, this could be compromised by loss of or damage to work that was in the sample. 

Once your centre has completed this process after results days and any requested reviews are finalised, you are free to release the students' work back to them. 

Access the JCQ Instructions for conducting non-examination assessments

Where work is stored in hard copy format, secure storage is defined as a securely locked cabinet or cupboard.

Where candidates are producing artefacts (e.g. Art & Design) secure storage may be defined as a classroom, studio or workshop which is locked or supervised from the end of one session to the start of the next

JCQ Instructions for Conducting Non-Examination Assessments page 9

Before the submission of work for formal assessment, centres must remind candidates to always keep their work secure and not to publicise their work such as posting it on social media. The JCQ document Information for candidates ‚Äď social media must be brought to the attention of candidates.

Centres must also be aware of the need to authenticate candidates’ work as detailed in section 4.6. During the period from the submission of work for formal assessment until the deadline for requesting a review of results, copies of work may be used for other purposes, e.g. in a competition, provided that the originals are stored securely by the centre.

Where original work is used for moderation, as in Art & Design, a teacher must be present if, during this period:

  • assessed work is exhibited; 
  • a candidate takes assessed work to an interview; 
  • the work is removed from secure storage for any other reason.

JCQ Instructions for Conducting Non-Examination Assessments page 9

Internally assessed work that is not required for the moderation sample and work returned to centres after moderation must be stored securely until all possible post-results services have been exhausted. If post-results services have not been requested, internally assessed work may be returned to candidates after the deadline for requesting a review of results for the relevant series. If post-results services have been requested, internally assessed work may be returned once the review of results and any subsequent appeal has been completed.

JCQ Instructions for Conducting Non-Examination Assessments page 9

Because the artwork is considered 'live' until results day and review of moderation (if applicable) has taken place in the students' final year, it is important that the artwork is kept secure until these dates as per JCQ regulations.  

However, it is important to celebrate the students' work and you may hold an exhibition of artwork post-moderation. Many centres put up the artwork for moderation and then directly afterwards open this up to the public. 

Any centres holding such an exhibition must regard all the work as still being 'live' and ensure that the exhibition is invigilated and that work remains secure. If work is taken out of secure conditions and a centre subsequently wishes to apply for review of marking and moderation after results day, this process could be compromised by loss of or damage to work that was in the sample.‚ÄĮ¬†

The school must also consider how to reduce the risk of photographs of the exhibition appearing on social media accounts of visitors, as this would breach JCQ regulations.

Spanning 1520‚Äď1920, this Tate Britain exhibition dismantles stereotypes surrounding women artists in history, who were often thought of as amateurs.
