Scope / General

Ofqual has confirmed that the policy position is that exams and assessments will go ahead in 2021- 2022. Adaptations may be necessary to ensure they can go ahead as planned.

You can apply for an adaptation by submitting an Adaptation Request Form via the Portal. If you have any concerns about your delivery and assessment arrangements for 2021-22, please contact us on 

All learners who are due to take assessments towards unit or qualification results between 1st August 2021 and 31st August 2022. If centres have learners that are not due to complete their qualification until after 31st August 2022, but are still expected to be assessed during this period, the same adaptations should be utilised. This includes assessments due to be completed in 2021/2022 and used towards a qualification continuing into the next academic year.  

The guidelines apply to all Ofqual-regulated vocational and technical qualifications (VTQs), including Functional Skills. Some Open Awards qualifications have specific adaptations approved. More information can be found on the Portal. 


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