GCSE Certificates (Wales)

Certificates for newly reformed summer 2016 AS qualifications

As GCE qualifications are being reformed to different timelines, many candidates have been awarded a mixture of newly reformed and non-reformed AS qualifications during the summer 2016 series.  To ensure that candidates who have taken a mixture of newly reformed and non-reformed WJEC and WJEC-Eduqas AS qualifications receive just one certificate, we have issued certificates for the summer 2016 awards which contain the logos of all three regulators.  In some instances, the certificate will include qualifications that are not regulated by all three regulators, Ofqual, Qualifications Wales and CCEA. 

It should be noted that each qualification listed on a certificate contains a reference number known as a qualification accreditation number (QAN).  This number can be used to verify the regulated status of each qualification listed on the certificate.
