Key Documents are designed to support you in the identification and completion of key tasks through the exam cycle

Documents are categorised by stages of the exam cycle, supporting you in understanding when these could be useful during the exams management and administration process

  • Guides provide overviews of processes and regulations, highlight key tasks and promote good practice
  • Checklists provide a means of self-assessment
  • Templates provide a starting point for undertaking/completing a key task or process and may be customised for use in a centre
