Non-Exam Assessments

What are Non-Examination Assessments?

Non-examination assessments measure subject-specific knowledge and skills that cannot be tested by timed written papers.

There are three assessment stages and rules which apply to each stage.  These rules often vary across subjects.  The stages are:

  • task setting
  • task taking
  • task marking

A level and GCSE students will be advised of their centre assessed marks on 16th March 2022. Work is marked in accordance with awarding body specifications, internally moderated/ standardised and then moderated externally.  Candidates may request a review before their marks are submitted to the awarding body. Candidates are reminded that marks are likely to remain the same but can be brought down. All marks are subject to further change through external moderation. 

Requests for reviews must be submitted to the Examinations Office by 5pm on 18th March 2022. A fee is payable for an NEA review by an independent assessor with appropriate competencies. Please see the polices section for more details on how to go about this process.
