The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) issue the rules and regulations for examination candidates on a yearly basis.
These regulations are available at the following link:
These regulations include the rules that exam candidates need to follow with respect to written examinations, examinations taken on a computer (On-Screen Tests), and Non-Examination Assessments (such as practical work and coursework).
In addition there is guidance on discussing or posting about examinations on social media, and a Privacy Notice for candidates. This Privacy Notice sets out how Exam Boards will use the data they collect from candidates.
It is important that students familiarise themselves with these regulations, as failure to follow the rules in any assessment could constitute malpractice. Consequences for malpractice are decided by the Exam Board, but could include disqualification from the exam, qualification, or the entire exam season.
