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 6 June. I wish all of your students the best of luck in their exams. Results will be released to centres on 22 August with results released to candidates on 23 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 2018 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 between the following dates for the summer 2018 series:

  • Thursday 23 August 2018 - Friday 14 December 2018

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