Assessment criteria, Candidate assessment booklets and authentication sheet for summer 2023 certification

From the above links, you will be able to access the latest assessment materials for summer 2023 submissions. The changes from summer 2022 are:

  • Assessment criteria is in full - without any adaptations. 
  • CABs have been adapted to include all grids and marks (GCSE out of 100 and A level out of 120)
  • Selected marks in the CAB defines the level. No need to select level.
  • Candidate name and number field included in the CAB sheet. 


As you know, all NEA samples for moderation in summer 2022 has been submitted electronically, through the Learner Work Transfer (LWT) system. 

In summer 2023 and beyond, all submissions will be through LWT. There will be no hardcopy/physical submission. We therefore advise centres to take on a digital appoach in portfolio creation, so that learners evidence is captured on-the-go and timely, ready for moderation in summer. 

NEA deadline in 2022/2023

Deadline for NEA submissions next summer will be on 15 May 2023.
