Guidance and administration
Here, you'll find everything you need to conduct examinations in your centre, from ordering stationery to tracking your examination papers.
The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) publishes information for all examination bodies. It has a set of common regulations for centres across academic and vocational qualifications, which you'll also find in the pages below.
We will routinely send you quantities of examination stationery and envelopes relating to the entries that you make.
The Stationery and Materials list provides information on the stationery and equipment required for our general qualification examinations in the next series. The list is provided as a spreadsheet which you can download and filter to your requirements.
If you wish, you can order additional quantities of these items by visiting our Additional stationery requests site. Please note that you will need your centre number and postcode in order to access this site.
This service is no longer available. Exams Officers can now print their own labels or request a collection via the Pacelforce website for delivery of material to our Hellaby processing sites.
You can now track your consignments of papers using our online question paper despatch tool on Edexcel Online. (Please note that, for security purposes, you'll need an Edexcel Online registered email address.)
With the online tool, you can:
- View which question papers have been sent to you
- Track the papers' delivery progress
- Obtain delivery details for the consignment of question papers.
Please note that you cannot use this online tool to track:
- BTEC or NVQ materials
- Attendance registers or forms used in the administration of examinations
- Examination stationery such as booklets or envelopes. (You can see details of examination stationery despatches here.)
