We will still be assessing Learners entered for the above Qualifications and Examinations against the 2014 syllabus specifications for all Examination events taking place until 31 July 2019.

For Examination events that run from July 2019 through to August 2019, we will assess these Learners against the current 2014 specifications, providing the first day of the event began prior to 1 August 2019. For example, if an Examination event began on 30 July 2019, and finished on 3 August 2019, all of these Learners will be assessed against the current, 2014 syllabus specifications. All Learners will be assessed against the same syllabus for the entire Event.
