You should now have submitted the coursework to your moderators and I hope that this process goes well for you all. The exam for GCSE this year is on 9 June. I wish all of your students the best of luck in their exams. Results will be released to centres on 23 August with results released to candidates on 24 August. You will be able to access the exam paper and mark scheme online by the end of July with the Examiner's report being available from results day.

After the summer 2017 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.

The Self-Service Portal will be available until the final post-results deadline for each exam series:

  • Summer 2017 - Thursday 28 September

Customers should save and/or print any scripts they need for teaching and learning purposes before the post-results deadline.

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.

Training

In the autumn and spring terms we will be holding free mocks marking training for the new specification to enable you to understand the requirements of component 3. We will also have dates available to book on to soon for standardisation training for components 1 and 2. Details of these events can be found online where you can also book your place.
