An annual release that presents data on the number of malpractice penalties and offences in Wales for GCSE, AS and A level qualifications.

Release Date: Thursday 17 December, 2020
Period covered: Summer 2020
Next Update: December 2021 (Provisional)

Key Points: 

  • Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic there have been substantial changes to the awarding and malpractice processes. These changes mean that users should interpret differences between 2020 figures and other series with caution. This release describes the malpractice in summer and additional data is available in the associated data tables. Although there were no exams in summer 2020, some malpractice cases here relate to external assessments completed before the summer. 
  • 55 penalties were issued in summer 2020. Of these 40 were issued to students, 15 to centre staff, and none were issued to centres
