This page contains links to some of the latest information from the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) . This will also include the outcomes from any meetings/committees/forums which The Exams Office attends in relation to the work of the regulator in England.

The Exams Office has been working closely with Ofqual over recent years. The Exams Office welcomes Ofqual's attempt to raise the profile of the role of exams officers, and increase awareness of exams regulations and requirements, with a recently sent letter to Heads Let’s have a successful exam series that gives feedback from previous exam years to help make sure this summer series is a success. We are also delighted to include Ofqual as ‘guest writer’ for our May blog.

To further develop our positive collaborative working relationship, we will be meeting with Ofqual later this month, and look forward to welcoming them as one of the keynote speakers at our Summer conference which takes place in London on Monday 2 July.
