Component 3

If you want help with Post results services see the

Post-results services webpage.

All entries now for the last session for Component 3 should have been made. 

Component 1 and Component 2

All Standards Verifiers (SV) are now allocated and you can find contact details in Edexcel Online (EOL) for these, since this is the final series for Standards Verification for the Tech Awards your alloctaed SV is the best person to discuss sample requirements with so make contact as early as possible.

If a component was assessed last academic year or was started last academic year and ths is evident in your assessmet plan then these components are recognised to have been eligible for reduced assessment and your SV will understand when evidence of assessment for LA-A is not available.

Earlier Publication of PSAs

In response to feedback we have decided to publish our Pearson Set Assignments earlier. One month earlier for both the annual assessment windows these new dates are captured in the revised Key Dates Schedule.

For Dec/Jan session PSA published early September

For May/June session PSA published early January.

Support Index

This Support Index is incredibly useful for a new qualification like our 2022 Tech Awards, some of the documents are specifically relevant to teachers and some are more useful for Exams Officers but it is good that all of you have access to these articles:

Marking and Moderation for Internally Assessed Components

May 2023/Jun 2023 Session

The delays and extensions for deadlines this assessment window has put our moderator teams and assessment colleagues under intense pressure as the results deadline cannot be moved. This has led to some centres not receiving their Early Draft E9 reports in time to avail of the Raw mark modification opportunity which expired Friday 23rd June. Please see this communication sent on the 22nd June.
