Component 2 survey for 23-24 academic year   

We would appreciate your feedback on a proposal to extend the Component 2 examination window in the 2023-24 academic year. 

We intend to offer a longer assessment window for Component 2 that we had this year (30 January to 31st March 2023); in 2023-24, we would like to run the window from 8 January until 19 April.

Would you mind completing this short survey to indicate when you are likely to want to run the examination please? 

Please note - this is not a formal booking process. We are merely seeking an indication of when you would like the examination to take place. You will be able to formally book the dates with your examiner next year.

We will again offer the opportunity for all centres to either request a visiting examiner or to record the work within the centre and submit it to your allocated examiner for assessment via Learner Work Transfer (LWT).

Please submit your responses to this survey by Wednesday 28th June 2023.
