About A2C

Information taken from the JCQ website

The A2C programme is bringing significant improvements to the way data is shared between awarding organisations and centres

The programme is being delivered by JCQCIC, its awarding organisations and MIS Suppliers in collaboration and consultation with a wide range of stakeholders

If you do not use an MIS for your exam processing you will not be affected directly by A2C; all Awarding Organisations will continue to support their existing extranets


Key dates

  • September 2018 – Pilot for Vocational Qualifications
  • Academic years 2019-2021 – Rollout for Vocational Qualifications
  • Some JCQ Awarding Organisations will continue to use EDI for General Qualifications (GCSE and GCE); there is therefore currently no defined cutoff for EDI
