JCQ regulations

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, applications for access arrangements for GCSE and GCE examinations are now made online using the Access Arrangements Online (AAO) tool. Centres are required to record assessment information on the Joint Council for Qualifications’ Form 8 (available at www.jcq.org.uk).

This section is specifically aimed at helping assessors to complete the sections of this form that are relevant to students with difficulties in reading speed and comprehension, spelling and handwriting. Please also refer to the guidance notes in Section 7 of the JCQ AARA when completing Form 8.
