Adverse Weather Conditions

If your centre is conducting Functional Skills, iGCSE or timetabled Vocational Qualifications examinations this month and you have queries regarding the conducting of examinations in light of the current adverse weather conditions you must contact the relevant Awarding Organisation for further advice and guidance.  For JCQCIC members' contact details, please click here.


On 1st January 2014, the JCQ transferred its assets and operations to the Joint Council for Qualifications CIC, a not-for-profit Community Interest Company.  The documents issued by the JCQ at the start of the academic year 2013-2014 will remain valid for use until they are reissued or updated for the new academic year 2014-2015. Documentation published following 1st January 2014 will be issued by the JCQ CIC and will bear the new JCQ CIC logo.  For further information regarding the JCQ's change of status, please click here.
