Information for learners

We’re keen to let young people know about the arrangements for assessment of qualifications in Wales for Summer 2021.

If you haven’t heard of us before,  we  make sure that qualifications in Wales are the best they can be for learners. We make sure that those who create exams and assessments, such as the WJEC, create exams and assessments in an appropriate way and to a high standard.  

We’ve sent a letter out to schools and colleges with an update and what it means for you. We will publish regular updates here to keep you informed of developments as they occur.
