New malpractice guidance for awarding organisations

Exam regulator Ofqual has published new guidance about malpractice and maladministration for awarding organisations (AOs), following a consultation.

This new expanded and updated guidance further strengthens the regulatory framework, drawing on what has been learned in practice. The guidance will help awarding organisations to comply with its rules.

The guidance will become part of Ofqual’s handbook for awarding organisations.
