The Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) has developed a short survey to gauge audiences’ understanding and knowledge of the assessment arrangements and adaptations for CCEA qualifications delivered during 2021/22.
We continue to be mindful of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption this has caused to teaching and learning. This year a number of measures designed to support students impacted by the pandemic have been introduced:
From Monday 7 February, students in Northern Ireland sitting exams with AQA, Eduqas, OCR and Pearson in summer 2022 have access to Advance Information to help focus their revision for GCSE, AS and A level exams, in order mitigate the disruption to learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today (November 22, 2021) marks the first day of the November examination series for some 27,149 students in Northern Ireland. CCEA would like to thank teachers and parents for their hard work and commitment in preparing students for these exams. We would also like to acknowledge the role examiners will play in the coming weeks.
Announcements have been made by Qualifications Wales today (6 October), in relation to the approach it will take to GCSE and AS/A level standards in Summer 2022.
Announcements have been made by Ofqual today (30 September) in relation to the GCSE AS/A level qualifications it regulates. These cover adaptations for summer 2022 and apply to AQA, Eduqas, OCR and Pearson qualifications, even if taken in Northern Ireland.
Today, Wednesday 1 September 2021, CCEA launched its full suite of pre-recorded webinars encompassing all CCEA GCSE and GCE subjects. Webinars are now available to view online.
