The UK’s largest awarding organisation

Pearson is the UK's largest awarding body with more than 3.4 million students studying our qualifications worldwide and over 9 million exam scripts marked on behalf of the UK Department for Education each year.

We also offer the broadest range of academic and vocational qualifications, including Pearson Edexcel, BTEC, LCCI and EDI.

Globally recognised qualifications

Pearson Edexcel qualifications give your child the opportunity to study towards academic qualifications that are recognised by the best universities around the world – including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, University of Hong Kong / China, University of Melbourne and National University of Singapore.

The most reliable awarding organisation

Pearson Edexcel delivers the most accurate exam results in the UK with 99.2%* of grades accurate on results day in 2017, meaning 99.2% of teachers and students can feel confident that they’ll get the right outcome.

We achieve this using ePEN, our unique image-based marking system, with real time monitoring, quality control and reporting to ensure the highest quality marking and provision of data. Unlike traditional exam paper marking, our examiners mark one anonymised question at a time, rather than one paper/script at a time. They submit marks for each item as they go, which removes any potential bias they may have based on a student’s answers to previous questions and produces remarkably accurate results.
