Exam Officers

This part of the website is for exam officers in schools, colleges and other institutions which enter candidates for WJEC examinations.

Legacy AS, A level and GCSE Resits

Re-sit opportunities for some GCSE Legacy units will be available in the January or June 2019 series, and for GCE Legacy units in the June 2019 examination series. Units that are available in each series will be the final opportunity, and will be available only to eligible candidates.

Intention to enter applications for these subjects must be made by centres no later than 20th September 2018 through the WJEC secure website. Applications made after this date will not be accepted. If there is insufficient demand, the opportunity to resit will be withdrawn. Please see the WJEC website in October 2018 for a final list of January and June 2019 resit opportunities available.
