Scope / General

This arrangement only applies to Ofqual regulated qualifications. Quality endorsed units and badge of excellence provision is exempt. The full list of qualifications in scope and the planned mitigation can be viewed here

There is separate guidance for Access to HE Diplomas that can be found here.

Yes legacy functional skills qualifications will be extended to the end of December 2020.

The last date for assessment will be 31s October 2020 to reflect this.

However, learners registered to legacy qualifications will be given an estimated grade in Summer 2020. Assessments after Summer 2020 will therefore only be applicable for learners whose centres are unable to participate in the calculation of a grade or those who require a resit.

There are four categories of mitigation that will be available depending on the qualification:

  • Calculation of results
  • Adaptation to assessment
  • Delay of assessment
  • No mitigation due to there being no learners due to complete this summer.

The majority of our qualifications will be in scope for calculation of results. 

There is a full list of Open Awards qualifications within scope for mitigation available to view on our website here.

Any learners that are due to be assessed during Summer 2020 for a qualification in scope will be entitled to a calculation of their achievement/grade. This includes learners who would have completed assessments for units within a qualification this summer but weren’t expecting to achieve the full qualification until a later date.

There is a full list of Open Awards qualifications within scope for mitigation available to view on our website here.

No these arrangements are for qualifications (or units being taken towards a full qualification).
