Code of Practice

The GCE, GCSE, principal learning and project Code of Practice

The GCE, GCSE, Principal Learning and Project Code of Practice is designed to promote quality, consistency, accuracy and fairness in the assessment and awarding of all general qualifications. It also helps to ensure that standards are maintained in each subject, across awarding organisations and different specifications from year to year.

The regulators in Northern Ireland (CCEA Regulation), England (Ofqual) and Wales (Qualifications Wales) produce this code of practice. The Code lays down agreed principles, processes and practices for the awarding organisations that develop and deliver these qualifications.

The Code is currently under review.
