The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) is the body which puts in place and oversees exam regulations. These regulations are set in order that all candidates sit their exams under common arrangements.
JCQ monitors all exam arrangements by undertaking regular inspections to ensure that these instructions are followed. It is therefore important that all candidates know what is expected of them before, during and after exams.
The exam documents in the left hand column of this page should be read and understood by all candidates in preparation of taking their examinations. Failure to follow these instructions will carry penalties which includes the disqualification of a candidate’s exam.
