Subject Advisor Appointment Booking Service

Last month I launched a service to allow you to book a one-to-one video call via Teams with me to ask questions and provide feedback. For those that have already used the service, I hope you have found it useful. There is, however, a small change to the way the bookings can be made. The service is moving to bookings made through Microsoft Bookings. You will now need to use the following link to book the appointments.

Book a one-to-one appointment with your Subject Advisor

The booking service provides you with my availability on a rolling 30 day period, so you can continue to book appointments that are convenient for you using the single link. Therefore, please do bookmark the page.

Summer 2022 results

The standards verification process is coming to an end and you will be able to access your SV report once it has been completed. You can access the SV report via Edexcel Online. We have produced a short video showing how to access your SV report.

For the external assessments from the summer series the results will be issued on Wednesday 24 August 2022 and they can be released to candidates on Thursday 25 August 2022. 

You can find the results for externally assessed units for your cohorts via Edexcel Online.

Access to scripts

After the results are published in August, centres will be able to view and download scripts which have been marked online free of charge from our self-service portal via Edexcel Online.

Customers should save and/or print any scripts they need for teaching and learning purposes before the deadline(to be confirmed but is usually in December).

Scripts do not have examiner annotation on them. The marked script allows teachers to evaluate how the student performed on particular questions in relation to what they have been taught; the Principal Examiner's report and the exemplars that we make available demonstrate how the mark scheme is applied.

If scripts have been marked "traditionally" (i.e. not online), centres will have to request them via the Post Results section of Edexcel Online as in previous exam series.

These scripts will also be free of charge, but the final dates to request them are the same as the published JCQ Access to Scripts deadlines.

Review of marking and moderation (RoMM)

If you're a centre with a concern about a student's results, you can use our post-results services. We have details about these services and their cost online.

Post results fees

Details of the fees for post results services for 2022 will be confirmed shortly.

2022/23 Assessment

The framework that allowed adapaptations and streamlined assessment will come to an end at the end of the current academic year. Therefore, assessments taken in 2022/23 will reuturn to normal requirements and there will be no option to streamline units or use the adaptations to evidence. You should plan for all assessments to take place next academic year, but the situation will be monitored.
