What are key dates?

These are exams administration dates and deadlines provided for centres by awarding bodies. The key dates provided by an awarding body are published on the individual awarding body website.

JCQ (on behalf of AQA, CCEA, OCR, Pearson and WJEC) publishes common key dates in the examination cycle.

  • identifying the key dates and deadlines that affect their centre
