Today I received an email from my school about my GCSE grades and results day protocols. However, in the letter it says that the grading I will receive is awarded by QCA..

What is QCA? I thought our grades were coming from the exam boards I would've sat (e.g. AQA, Edexcel and Eduqas)..

Thanks.

Hi Ryan,

QCA is the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. They oversee the exam boards to make sure that they are offering courses that are rigorous enough, fairly marked and that there is no cheating, and that exam scores are not too weighted to the higher or lower grades.

The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) was set up by the Government to regulate all external qualifications in England. Your exam results will be awarded by AQA, Edexcel etc, but QCA ensures the exam boards follow quality procedures.
